Navratilova & Raymond - not meant to be!

Just checked the doubles results and realized that Martina and Lisa lost to Myskina and Likhovtseva, a team who has never played together before? , in three sets. I personally don`t see them playing great at Athens. Thought, Martina and a doubles specialist like Lisa should play brilliant doubles but they should split up to have a chance to win a medal with other partners.

I always wanted Lisa to team up with Lindsay to win Gold but .... Now we see the result! It will be a disappointing experience for Lisa and Martina to go to Athens...

That's true. They beat Nadia/Meghann at Indian Wells. The last time those two have lost a match.

Well the previous tournament they made it to the finals and lost to Suarez/pascual..hardly a bad result..

Im a bit disapointed with their results this year, but I dont think its beyond them to do well at the Olympics.. They have had some really tough draws this year, whenever a strong unseeded team is in a draw (like Lindsay/Corina or Myskina/Likhovtseva etc) Martina and lisa have drawn them nearly everytime...they have to start winning those matches...

I guess Williams/Williams remains the best doubles team in the world.

Lisa is playing with Martina b/c Lindsay told her she didn't want to play singles + doubles at the Olympics. Lisa needed another full-time partner.

I think their results will improve after this claycourt season is over.

There is a certain intrigue growing about doubles selection. it's entirely possible that Meghann will ride her successful partnership with Petrova into being US doubles #1.. And Meghann would be a much more interesting partner for both navratilova and Raymond..
