Re: WWW 2012 Olympics Doubles?

BYE. Reaaally?
No country could find two players willing to play a doubles match?

Either the Sisters or the Czechs.

Because of the July 20 deadline. Bondarenko withdrew and Ukraine doesn't have another representative to play with Katya.

No other nation has two players in the singles draw to field a team that isn't already fielded.

Good draw for the Williams, hopefully an All-American final.

Jankovic/Ivanovic, Wickmayer/Clijsters

And I know it was reported that the Serbians were looking to get in.

Agreed. That´s pathetic. I can understand why Clijsters and Wickmayer wouldn´t play doubles with their recent injury problems, but Ana/JJ? Even if they suck at it, it´s not like they´ll be busy with singles long.

I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.
You made the list: NEW President Bouchard, Cibulkova, Mladenovic, Wozniacki, Kerber, Cornet, Watson, Broady.

Maybe they couldn´t get in as a late replacement, because they weren´t british enough.

No Ana/JJ Bye

Either Alona was really inconsiderate or this was indeed a strategic fix.

Re: WWW 2012 Olympics Doubles?

I am upset that Ana/JJ didn't get put into the doubles field.
I'm interested to see how Li's singles prowess translates into doubles but a tricky opener. So they might not be around long.
My prediction
Gold: Williams/Williams
Silver: Makarova/Vesnina
Bronze:Kirilenko/Petrova

R.I.P Bally

Thankyou for years of service to British tennis
