You know that word game that people would play where someone would say a word, then the next person would say the first thing that came to mind? Well, in the good ole days, if someone said "doubles"; the response would be "volley"
Nowadays you got all of these baseliners playing because serve and volleyers are dead, so most of the time both players back, or one up and the other back. Most baseliners don't even serve and volley in doubles (go figure).
My point is, this makes Ruano/Suarez appear very boring. People were excited when the saw all four players at the net slamming volleys at each other. Teams like Nav/Shriver, Novotna/Sukova, King/Casals and Natasha and Gigi. I don't think Vivi and Paola are comparable to the best yet, but their style of play could be hurting them.
I laughed so hard at the Ruano/Suarez vs Martinez/Husarova match. Paola doesn't volley too well, but she's the one at the net most. Ruano volleys well, but doesn't serve and volley and hangs back a lot. Martinez is crazy, she doesn't do anything but stay back and hit moonballs, IN DOUBLES
. The only person on court that played premier doubles was Husarova, and I didn't even know who she was, lol... but I was impressed with her!
