The pairing of Iveta Benesova and Barbora Zahlavova ousted Yanina Wickmayer and Kirsten Flipkens (photo) 6-4, 6-4 on the Charleroi hard court. No stunt victory for Belgium after all, after Kirsten Flipkens had boosted Belgium's hopes in the singles.
Belgium were without Justine Henin (who quit tennis) and Kim Clijsters (injured). Yanina Wickmayer, the world's number 23, was the highest ranked player in the Belgian team. Kirsten Flipkens (WTA-103) assisted her. After 4 singles matches, the score was level 2-2. In the deciding doubles, the Czech girls showed more consistency.
