Double's final

Like in singles the story repeated itself in doubles. Shaugnessy and Petrova took the second title in a row. After Berlin they have won Rome by beating the first seeded Ruano Pascual/Suarez in three sets 2-6,6-3,6-3.

They are simply the best, better than all the rest, .....

TOP 10
1.MARTINA HINGIS
2.Meghann Shaughnessy
3.Elena Dementieva
4.Kim Clijsters
5.Ana Ivanovic
6.Anastasia Miskina
7.Patty Schnyder
8.Katarina Srebotnik
9.Andreja Klepac
10.Masa Zec-Peskiric

I would like to see them play. Based on results they seem like a great team.
I know they both have good serves; I wonder what their other strenghts are in doubles. Of course they have good groundstrokes, but maybe other things too.

I think their main advantage is the height beside everything else (great serves, groundstrokes, net play,...). They can 't get lobbed very easy.

What's up with RPascual/Suarez?? They seemed to be the best outside of WilliamsX2 and the now defunct Ai/Kim. Will Nadia/Meghan win a GS this year??

Well, i always found Paola/Vivi overrated anyways,sooo....too many teams who can beat them anyday anytime....put a team with a good server and they are cooked.

Always bet on black!
