The dream run for the self-styled “Team RobMond” came to an end in the women’s doubles final, when the no. 3 seeds halted them in straight sets.
The first set got away very quickly from the UK/US pairing, but they were able to put up more of a fight in the second.
It looked as though they might force a Championship Tie-break as Raymond/Robson got a potentially decisive break to lead 6-5.
A double fault, as they served for the set, took the second set into a tie-break.
Petrova/Srebotnik marched on from a 4-2 lead, winning 7-6(2), and ending a great partnership from this fortnight.
Sadly Team RobMond will not be reuniting in Charleston next week, as Raymond will be partnering fellow American, Vania King.
