Lepchenko/Young - that's interesting!

Falconi/Johnson could do damage. So could Sloane and Ram. Great WCs.

Who is the last mixed team to win the same Slam in consecutive years?

Brother & sister Suk/Sukova in Wimbledon 1996/1997

Bob Bryan has done it in both Roland Garros and US Open too but with different partners.

^^ Great Q! US Open was 1981-1982 - Anne Smith and Kevin Curren.

Sukova and Suk won RG in 96 and 97.

Vania King and Jessie Levine asked for a WC and were denied.
Are you kidding me? She's a two times Slam champion and nobodies get one over her.

Wow, that's crazy. Yet Lepchenko/Young got one over them. You can make the youth argument for the other ones but still, Vania is a top doubles player. Crazy.

Vania King ‏@queen_v21

So ridiculous that @jesselevine7 and I could not get a WC into the @usopen in MXD..winning in 2010 and finals last year isn't good enough

No.

The USTA has often overlooked Vania. Very sad.

USTA politics perhaps?? Love to hear their justification for denying a top doubles player from the home nationa a mixed WC with a player from the home nation.

Maybe USTA was like: "She could have entered on her own ranking with any guy who asked her and she still wanted to play with a guy ranked outside the top 600 in doubles who didn't bother to play a tournament since April" Not that I agree, but it doesn't seem like a a wise choice for Vania, I guess
