It did suprise us that we didn't see Vaidotas Lacitis - Veronika Golodneva, LTU, in the GrandSlam Standard final last night. The couple had made every final - GrandSlam and Championship - since missing out narrowly in Helsinki exactly one year ago. Finland seems to bring the Lithuanians bad luck, we thought. Well, it was bad luck - but of a different kind. Veronika sent us a message on Facebook to set the record straight:
"Yesterday on 18 March, I and partner Vaidotas Lacitis took part in WDSF GS Standard in Helsinki, but due to injury I had to withdraw. To avoid any misunderstanding, could you please mark our result accordingly, please. Thank you! Best regards, Veronika Golodneva."
We will let the scrutineer know!
