Such is the drama of doubles

Quote:
I think with her serve and her athleticism, her power, her court mobility, I just think when she’s on, she’s the greatest player we’ve ever seen, ever. Now, whether her record is the greatest remains to be seen because she hasn’t retired yet. But I think she is really the greatest player. I have seen Martina and Steffi at their best. There are little chinks in those players’ armor, but it was a different era, where you didn’t need to be the perfect player.

8 match points and 15-13 is what it takes to stop Chuang in Seoul. She had made the finals for 5 years in a row winning it 3 times including the last 2 years. I don't think we'll find too many better tournament records than that in the last 6 years.

Congrats YJ and Abi!

Poutchek in Tashkent would come close I think

Congrats to the winners!

Zi and Chuang played embarrassingly poorly in Cincy... hope they are doing better now.

No idea what the commentators are saying, but they sound like they're having a good time! Thanks for the video
