Re: Carly Gullickson partner
Regardless of who Carly ends up with, I think it's safe to say that having a Slam to her name will really open up the door for her as far as starting to pair up regularly with doubles players ranked among the top 20 or top 10. There have way too many instances where she's been paired with people who are weaker doubles players than her, so hopefully that changes soon.
It also wouldn't surprise me to see Carly go down the doubles specialist route soon. She's already admitted that her game is more suited for doubles and while she has some game in singles, I can't see her doing more than cracking the top 100. After winning a Grand Slam title, I don't really see how you can go back to playing challengers.
