Well seeing as the doubles season is coming to a close, I thought we could discuss what we expect to see from doubles teams and what teams will be pairing up for 2010.

Confirmed Teams:
Black/Huber
Williams/Williams
Llagostera Vives/Martinez Sanchez
Kleybanova/Schiavone
Chuang/Peschke
Domachowska/Pin
Coin/Pelletier
Groenefeld/King
Safarova/Wozniak
Raymond/Stubbs
Medina Garrigues/Wozniacki
Shvedova/Szavay
Vesnina/Zheng
Bacsinzky/Garbin
Kirilenko/Radwanska
Mirza/Ruano Pascual
Voegele/Mayr
Mattek-Sands/Zi
Basuki/Date-Krumm
Craybas/Spears
Dokic/Molik
Gullickson/Uhlirova
Cibulkova/Krajicek
Groth/Rogowska
Rodionova/Zalameda
Azarenka/Kuznetsova
Teams in red are pairing up for the Australian Open. Teams in black are together for the year.

Re: 2010 Teams & Expectations

Molik/Stubbs is most likely i think.

I hope Sammy plays some doubles next year...

At least at the slams


Samantha Stosur: US Open Champion 2011

Cornet // Diyas // Jankovic // Dellacqua // Pironkova // Halep // Hingis
Dulgheru // Gajdosova// Kanepi // Cetkovska // Svitolina // Niculescu // Errani

And I want more Aga/Kiri

Re: 2010 Teams & Expectations

Just Sam and Stubbs together if Rennae decide to continue!
And if Ame not continue then Alicia and Sveta together was already a great team!

GOOD LUCK THIS SEASON! :

Daniela Hantuchova Sam Stosur Jarmila Groth Alize Cornet Lisa Raymond Svetlana Kuznetsova Dominika Cibulkova Iveta Benesova Patty Schnyder Nadia Petrova Jelena Dokic Gisela Dulko Maria Kirilenko Vera Zvonareva Marion Bartoli Bethanie Mattek Sands Julia Goerges Andrea Petkovic Jelena Jankovic Kveta Peschke Katarina Srebotnik

Re: 2010 Teams & Expectations

I, personally, think that Cara Black is the stronger player in the Black/Huber combo.

Lindsay Davenport

Elena Bovina | Anastasia Myskina | Flavia Pennetta
Fernando Verdasco | Tommy Haas


Q. Give us an update on the kid.
A. Are you serious?

First, they definitely keep on playing together next year.
I think they will probably be disappointed with this year, no matter what happens at the YEC. And knowing how competitive they are, they will come back next year with the will to improve. To me, there is no stronger player in the team. Let's say that before, in 2005 and in 2007, Cara was the strong link, but till then, IMO, Liezel has made lots of efforts to physically be even more competitive. Her coach Roger helped a lot. Now, they are as good, but still need to adjust with their strengths. When you have been at the top for years, it's not surprising to have a year during which you are not as successful. They've had difficult moments, could go through it, but were definitely not as dominating. Too bad it is the exact year the Williamses play all the slams. Their strengthboth on and off court is communication. For sure, they'll talk together about it all and decide new game plans. Can't wait to see what the results will be next year! Very happy I'll follow their 4 first tournaments live

Cara Black - Liezel Huber - Mary Pierce

Chanelle Scheepers - Abigail Spears - Vladka Uhlirova - Mervana Jugic-Salkic - Francesca Schiavone -Tsvetana Pironkova - Lisa Raymond - Sophie Lefèvre...

Well they both balance each other out very well but I think that Liezel is the more solid of the two. If Cara is low on confidence her game can really shrivel, ala Aussie Open QF this year. There were some key moments and shots in that match where she had brain cramps and she missed some shots she would make in her sleep.

And on the wta website interview with Stosur and Stubbs they both said they have partners lined up for the beginning of the year. I wonder who they are..

Re: 2010 Teams & Expectations

Coin/Pelletier will play together at the Aussie Open

Wozniak would be supposed to play with Safarova, they are apparently friends since Moscow,I'd love it!! or with Lisicki again!

Wozniak~ElTabakh ~Marino~Eugenie Bouchard...and the other Canucks!
Maria Sharapova~Anna Chakvetadze~Jelena Dokic~Laura Robson ~Sabine Lisicki

Re: 2010 Teams & Expectations

Kim Clijsters/Daniela Hantuchova would be a tremandous team !
