Because it's Olympic year and players from the same country want to play together to get some preparation for Athens.

I think it's a good change. Black/Elena have never won a Doubles slam, have they? seems odd for a really good team like that to have done so poorly in slams.

Can't see Elena rushing back to Cara after the Olympics!?! She and Svetlana are a great team.

Mirjana Lucic : Australian Open doubles champ and back in Top 100

Jelena Jankovic : US Open finalist 2008 and World No. 1

Jennifer Capriati : 3 Grand Slams, Olympic Gold and World No.1

[center]Rafael Nadal : 10 Grand Slams, Olympic Gold and World No.1 [/center]

Cara/Lena have had bad results last year,they won only one tournament (Hobart Tier 5)so they have well done to slip!
Sveta/Lena is a better team as well as Stubbs/Black than Cara/lena!

Maria Sharapova
Krunic~~ Ivanovic ~~ Jovanovski ~~ Stojanovic~Jorovic
Putintseva~~Robson ~~Hingis~~ Svitolina ~~ Pavlyuchenkova~~ Rybarikova~~ Halep~~Pervak~~Kulichkova~~Kirilenko~~Mladenovic
Bencic~~Voegele~~Jankovic~~Zvonareva~~Karolina Pliskova ~~Krystina Pliskova

I thought they split up because they had poor results last year. Cara/Renaee is a really hot/cold team. They either end up winning the title or going out in the first round lol

can't explain how happy I'm.... finally Elena could get my full support.

but to answer this question, Olympics was the primary reason. They are still good friends (to my knowledge)

Vassilissa is my girl............
