its still pretty dire.
remember last season martina won 7 doubles titles, with 3 different partners, including a tier 1 title, and got tothe final of the open. Add to that a No. 6 ranking and 2 mix doubles slams and the conclusion is obvious. She was still one of the best doubels players in the world.
This season is a different kettle of fish. There have pretty much only been disappointments. I think she can't be playing as well.
I wish she had played singles last year, when she was doing better.
Looks like the singles really helped the doubles...
Seriously though, I hate to see Martina going out in such a poor state this year after last year was such a success for her.
You got that right !
Im not sure I buy that as a reason that as martinas real reason for playing singles, I think its more to do with seeing how she matches up, encouraged after a great season last year, and having fun with the crowd one last time. Maybe if she rocked in singles, she's thinking in the back of her mind that she'd play SW19 once more, but I dont see it happening........ the timing might be terrible, its all clay all of the time for the next few months, her worst surface, so dont hold your breath for glory martina fans, although who knows with that woman.
btw, Milagros only got one game from petrova...... So that doesnt make martina singles look any better....
