I´m sorry but Oremans/Boogert in their prime weren´t the worst doubles team. I think they could have been rated among the top10 of the competing teams and if you consider the Chinese teams beating top teams each week this year, I would even consider the Chinese girls the dangerous darkhorses in that event even with 2 American and 2 Russian teams competing ...
Scratch Belgium off the list. Callens isn't good enough (according to the Belgian Fed) and Justine doesn't have a partner
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.
If you team Henin and Callens, they´d make a good team especially considering that Henin is unranked in doubles, they won´t get a seed in doubles and if you put them against Lisa/Martina, I don´t know if they´d win that at the moment
... isn´t it that the "big" nations will "fill" the draw and the smaller ones won´t even have a chance to send just one ?!
ChrisGermany, thank you! That is what I meant the whole time. 4 singles players of each nation seem to be too much as well. The Olympic tournament needs small nations like Sweden (WTA), Madagascar, Belarus etc.!
Does anyone know the size of the draws? Singles: 96? Doubles: 64?
