Schnyder/Schett(12) def Hopkins/Washington 7-6(6), 7-6(5)

yay!! it's their first GS quarter-final since 98!! (that sounds terrible but they didn't play together for 4 years or so). they have a winnable quarter-final as well. patty will break the doubles top 20 for the first time as well.

so patty has gotten her ranking up to 14 in singles and the highest ever in doubles!! it's starting to remind of 98 where everything is falling into place. scary.


(hopefully PPs Slovene hitting partner will buy her some poppy seed muffins to eat after this tiring day and again i hope she uses hyperbole when dumping the criminal for digesting lei clijsters )

WEll Done girls!!!

Hopefully they can beat Lee/Peng to make it to the semis!!!!!

They always seem to push top teams in the GS's but just fall short - ruano/suarez at roland garros and black/stubbs at wimby....hopefully they can make the semi's here and have a good shot at the final!

GO FOR IT GIRLS!!!

Too bad Jennifer and Mashona but I'm soooooo happy for Patty and Babsi especially with rumors of Babsi retiring swirling. I hope they can keep it going and beat Lee/Peng.

they played together in 98 and made quarters of RG and the US Open and won hamburg beating hingis/novotna. then there were the patty dramas and they broke up in early 99 - so that's 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002. they played a few tournaments in 2002 but they only played together a lot last year and fully this year.

they have to be one of the best sounding doubles teams ever. and they both wear adidas so there outfits and names match.

i really hope babsi is not going to retire. or if she does at least not until after the Aus Open so i can see them one last time together

Since Jennifer Hopkins "isn't exactly Jennifer Capriati" the close score is rather unimpressive. But I'm glad they won, and in fact I'd like 2C them make the finals. Why? So Slovene and Cuckoo Clock become hitting partners of "another kind". (If they haven't already, Herr Hofmann).

PP not tanking after succumbing to Serena is orgasmic. My sources say Slovene wanted to go back to the hotel and "practice" with PP while Rainer watched on a web cam but Cuckoo Clock decided that there was a sad sought of clanging from the clock in the hall and the bells in stepple to, and that up in the nursery an absurd little bird was popping out to say cockoo
