I don't think you can beat Pratt/Sharapova.

That was going to be my suggestion although I might add Sharapova/Bartoli.

Others;
Sharapova/Schnyder (might be wrong but didn't they play together in Hong Kong?)
Poutchek/Tanasugarn
Huber/Vesnina

Raymond/Goerges looks rather odd in hindsight! Let's face it, that really wasn't going to work out.

Hlavackova, Strycova, Venus, Serena, Schiavone, Hradecka, Safarova, Cetkovska, Pliskova, Kasatkina, Putintseva, Ostapenko, Gasparyan

Sam Smith on Hlavackova

Re: What has been the most weird/unusual/interesting doubles pairing?

For me it was interesting to see that Tammy and Maria were doubles partners early before Maria broke out. Just because Maria is so tall and Tammy quite short. Although I'm not sure how tall Maria was at 16.

2008 Doha.

Odd pairings that spring to mind are Serena/Navratilova and Serena/Stevenson in 2002 Tokyo and Leipzig. Only two times she played without Venus in pro matches.

Re: What has been the most weird/unusual/interesting doubles pairing?

kuznetsova/goats.

to pair up with this young no one was at its time surprising

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.
