Thumbs up Stanford QF: Unseeded CHAN/NICULESCU def. [1] BLACK/HUBER 75 63!

They were leading 5-1 before it getting a little tense as Black and Huber saved 3 or 4 SPs and hit back to lead 5-5 30:0 on Monica's serve. But still let the young duo to close it out at 75.

In the second set, YJ and Monica made a few easy error to give Black/Huber a 3-1 lead, however, managed to play some incrediblly constructed points, mixing up lobs, short volley or flat strokes on deep baseline. Then they never looked back!

What a good win for them. Monica keeps her good form after winning her first title in Budapest, and YJ showed her tricky hands thats what made her a top 10 and also win a 75K in France 2 weeks ago.

Congrats girls. They raised their hands looking at each other in the end as if they couldn't believe it themselves.

Melbourne.

Those doubles matches sometimes seem to turn on a dime, and go so quickly it is hard to gain/regain momentum.

That's no-ad scoring for you. Whoever wins more "deciding points" usually wins the match.

Re: Stanford QF: Unseeded CHAN/NICULESCU def. [1] BLACK/HUBER 75 63!

I am delighted with this result. Monica has gone through so many different doubles partners in the last couple of years, almost all of them ranked lower than herself, and yet whoever she is paired with she seems to do pretty well. The results Monica consistently produces in doubles so often makes me wonder what she could do with a regular partner who is a good as she is.

Yung-Jan of course was one half of one of the best doubles teams in the world for a year and a half with Chia-Yung Chuang. But since splitting with her she has not done much in doubles at all going just 6-10 with a few different partners since the US Open last year. Infact Yung-Jan is currently ranked a lowly 124 in doubles. And yet clearly the awesome results of 2007 were not a fluke. Yung-Jan simply needs a good partner to win.

So just maybe has Monica finally found a partner worthy of her that she can go to the next level of success with? And has Yung-Jan finally found another partner than can take her back to the kind of results she enjoyed paired with Chuang? Of course it is too early to say yes. But this has the makings to be a great partnership and I for one would simply love to see these two carry on for a while and see where it takes them.
