After the title in Eastbourne this year....this is the one I'm hoping for!!!
Akgul & Ai
btw - Just wanted to add.....when Ai & Akgul played together at Eastbourne, they were a great team! Both of them looked like they were having so much fun, very business like but at the same time big smiles and loads of encouragement for eachother!! They were so fun to watch
As much as Ai has to be disappointed, this is nothing compared to the year she and Kim were #1 and Kim had to pull out of doubles at the U.S open after the draw was made. Is the entry list out for Toronto?
I dont think Sugiyama was upset ... as a tennis player i think she understood Dani was tired after 3 straightdays of 3 ste matches... AND a 2 hourn and 50 minute match an hour before...
But I think if Sugiyama were in that position, she would still play the doubles, and I get the feeling that is what she expects of Hantuchova (and one of the reasons why they split before perhaps). Especially with this being one of the key hardcourt tournaments and many points available.
Although that's just what I think I don't actually know about Ai and Dani's arrangement.
