Showdown: Amelie / Mary (FRA) vs. Martina / Lisa (USA)

Who will win this showdown? Of course I hope Amelie and Mary but I think Martina and Lisa will have too much experience and be able to overcome the sheer power of Mary / Amelie.

Then again, I would love Mary / Amelie to prove me wrong

This matchup is so weird:

1) Mary will be the only straight woman on the court
2) The worst volleyer on the court may be Amelie
3) 2 Grand Slam Champions paired w/ Underachivers

lmao about the observation on the ratio of sexuality of the players. do we really know that mary isn't gay though? she did break up with her long time fiance - wonder why (just kidding).

Pierce/Mauresmo def Navratilova/Raymond 6-1, 6-2

do you think mary and amelie speak english or french when together? mary obviously can speak the language but it's not her native tongue - while amelie's english is quite strong

The winner of this match probably will play against Spain (vivi-conchi) in semis so I prefer against Pierce - Mauresmo

.......... then Mauresmo and Pierce should win

María José Martínez Sánchez

Garbiñe Muguruza - María Teresa Torró Flor - María Sharapova - Marion Bartoli - Petra Kvitova

I know someone who was in Montreal watching their matches, and she said that Mary shouted something out to Amélie in French (something apparently very naughty! )

I think it'll be a very interesting match. My heart says Momo/Mary, but my head says Martina/Lisa (hope my head is wrong )

lol, cause the sexuality of players was brought into the equation, poor Mary's gonna be labelled a 'dyke hag'
The interesting thing is 3 of players all have singles matches before, so maybe this could effect the outcome, especially Lisa cause she is the oldest, just kidding.

I can't predict this one, may the best team win.

Raymond is gay?? Not that it matters...just surprising...

Doesn't matter who wins this one because they'll just be booking them a next round loss to Ai/Shinobu!!!!!

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

An excellent doubles team (which includes a great, but let's face it, ageing and no longer that effective singles player) versus a team with two very powerful singles players. Nav and Raymond should win this...surely they are a better team. But I hope the two French powerhouses get the upset. They do seem to be settling in quite well together.

Allez les filles!

I'll vote for the French girls, but more because I like them than because I seriously expect them to win this one.

LOL @ the sexuality comment. Anyway, although Lisa and Martina are American, I don't like either of them and since Mary is my favorite ever, Amelie/Mary are going to win

azarenka - pavlyuchenkova - li - jankovic
garcia - bencic - paszek - rus - kanepi - kuznetsova - stephens
bouchard - karatantcheva - larcher de brito - voegele - lim - mladenovic

mary pierce - forever #1
vaidisova - kournikova - golovin - henin
the boys - federer - gasquet - del potro - haase - nishikori

LOL rumors are Mary and Amelie have "something" going on hehe
they would make a great couple though

MARIA SHARAPOVA: "Amélie, you know it doesn't really matter at this point. I mean, I'd love to, I mean, Amélie is No. 1 in the world. She's playing great tennis. You know, I love that challenge of going out there and competing against the best in the world."
You'd love to what, Maria?

Lisa does not have a son....and she might be gay and she might not be, we really don't know one way or another. Whatever.

(1/20/17) Just discovered this gem in my private messages from 2006:
Who is Rtael?
This guy Rtael ,brainless and ignorant, is one of the most obnoxious, arrogant and coward guys whos has been a pest in this forum for years now.Given the new anti-bully policy he'll probably be expelled soon. Observe how he tries to rally and gang others against you. Mean people like him shouldn't be allowed here. And all because he "doesn't like your attitude"!!
**Everyone should consider themselves warned!**
