Quarters has strong matchups

Unlike singles, the matchups for the Doubles Quarters are interesitng. Strong teams...
1. Black/Huber vs. 6. Llagostera Vives/Martinez Sanchez
3. Stosur/Stubbs vs. 8. Mattek-Sands/Petrova
11. Yan/Zheng vs. 4. Williams/Williams
10. Kirilenko/Vesina vs.13. Kleybanova/Makarova
All of these matches have the potential to be fun... On number 1 vs. 6... haven't they played each other like two other times in the past month?

Re: Quarters has strong matchups

Agree completely that the QF are strong especially the top half of the draw.

Re: Quarters has strong matchups

Nuriajo have won 20 of their 21 last matches played. They lost only against Black/Huber in 3 sets in Cincinatti final.

Time for revenge

Re: Quarters has strong matchups

I agree. It's a fantastic line-up, especially in the top half.

A few H2H's and stats..


Black/Huber vs Llagostera-Vives/Martinez-Sanchez

Black/Huber lead 5-0

2008 Berlin Final - Black/Huber - 3-6 6-2 10-2
2008 French Open QF - Black/Huber 7-6 6-2
2009 Madrid QF - Black/Huber 6-4 6-4
2009 Wimbledon QF - Black/Huber 4-6 6-3 6-0
2009 Cincinnati Final - Black/Huber 6-3 0-6 10-2


In addition to being 0-5 vs their opponents, Nuria/Maria-Jose are also 0-4 in Slam QF's so they are really going up against the stats. However they are the most in form team right now with 5 finals in a row including 3 titles since Wimbledon, and a 12 match winning streak. So it's anybody's match.


Yan/Zheng vs Williams/Williams

Tied 1-1

2008 Australian Open QF - Yan/Zheng 3-6 6-4 6-2
2009 Wimbledon 3R - Williams/Williams 6-0 6-0


Yan/Zheng are into their 4th US Open QF but this is the only slam they haven't gone further.

Re: Quarters has strong matchups

Kleybanova/Makarova through safely earlier on today It's the first time I've watched them and Alisa/Katya gelled really well together

Can't wait for Black/Huber against the tricky Spaniards
