The gift that just keeps on giving - Kimiko is unreal!

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.

Granted I'm not expecting them (or Errani/Vinci for that matter) to be as good this year but it's a bit early to write them off but they definitely need to play better though.
I am sure as long as the Williams are not injured they will play all GS doubles together regardless singles first or not. As long as them and some regular teams are always playing the GS and big events, teams like the Czechs won't be able to sneak Finals to be able to gain enough points for the YEC doubles. Hell I even wonder if Errani/Vinci can stay at first with Olympics out of the way.

Yes, there are new teams like Huber/MJMS, Mirza/Mattek, Chan^2 and Kirilenko/Raymond that are not working out so well in top tier tournaments but there are teams that are working such as Petrova/Srebotnik and Errani/Vinci. That doesn't even taken other teams such as Hsieh/Peng, Zheng/LV, Black/Rodionova, Shvedova/King and Date/APS in.

He meant the other teams forming same-nation partnerships for the London Games.

What is its nature? He covets. That is his nature. And how do we begin to covet? We begin by coveting what we see every day.

Kimiko should play more doubles. She is amazing at the net. Almost like Black.

Even so, they won their slam in the first half of 2011 before most of the Olympic teams had been formed.

I did not know that winning one slam guarantees you to YEC.

Did Kuznetsova/Zvonareva qualify for YEC by winning a slam first half of 2012?

This is not ATP.

You don't have to agree with my thoughts on the Czechs. I might be wrong, let the time prove?

I first thought KDK & Santonja are pretty random paring.
