I don't mean it to be harsh. Playing with Kim for what, a year, let her into the mind of a Top 5, a No. 1, mental, strategy, confidence, it all helped. Anna and Pam for sure got better in singles playing doubles with a top singles player, no different with Ai. It's their time on the court that counts, not when they decided to split. Kim will have "after effect" on Ai for awhile, but she's already down a notch since last year. I don't expect the trend to reverse itself this year.
