I can't make a difference between Paola and Vivi.... both of them are

I would have thought Ai Sugiyama until this year. She just clicked very well with Kim and the two of them helped each other. I don't think there's as good with other people.

I would say that it might be either Martina Navratilova or Lisa Raymond - they're the only people that have proved that they can win big titles with people that aren't necessarily their partners. Suarez and Ruano-Pascual, while great, click well. It is hard to judge them because they don't play with anyone else. Clijsters and Sugiyama were the same way. Leizel Huber would be a candidate too (look at her win as a wild card this week with a complete nobody), but I'd like to see her win a big title before I said that.

Lindsay Davenport - Anna Smashnova - Lisa Raymond - Sandrine Testud - Paola Suarez - Amelie Mauresmo - Virginia Ruano-Pascual - Nadia Petrova - Chanda Rubin - Cara Black - Tathiana Garbin - Anne Kremer - Monica Seles - Fabiola Zuluaga - Maria Sanchez-Lorenzo - Amanda Coetzer - Rita Grande - Meghann Shaughnessy - Magui Serna - Nathalie Dechy - Kim Clijsters - Elena Tatarkova - Maria Sharapova - Alicia Molik - Julia Vakulenko - Elena Likhovtseva - Anastasia Myskina - Emilie Loit

I would love to say Els Callens, but I won't because she isn't consistent enough

I know I've been a liar
And I know I've been a fool
I hope we didn't break it
But I'm glad we broke the rules
My cave is deep now
Yet your light is shining through
I cover my eyes
Still all I see is you

paola and vivi are nothing if you separate them. they are the strongest team, but I might go with Sugiyama or Black

Black already won 3 titles this season, and that with different partners

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

The best doubles team right now is obviously Vivi & Paola, and of course Venus & Serena.

The best doubles players are Ai Sugiyama, Lisa Raymond, Rennae Stubbs and possibly Martina Navratilova.
