Anybody like doubles?

What doubles teams do you all like?

Personally mine is Daniela Hantuchova and Dinara Safina because I think they play quite well together and they are two of my faves.

I love doubles, in fact, I watch far more doubles than singles. My fave teams are Vivi & Paola, cos they always smile and have so much fun on the court, and any team that involved Patricia Tarabini, cos she's seriously cool!

Of course, in mixed doubles, you can;t fault any team involving Gaston Etlis, for pure comedy vaule!

Vivi & Conchita & Patricia & Paola 2004 Olympic Silver & Bronze medalists, Vivi & Anabel 2008 Olympic Silver medalists - congratulations!

I like Myriam Casanova and Marion Bartoli. I loved all dubs matches as much as singles.

The record girls i.e.: Ruano Pascual/Suárez
Martínez/Husarova
Serna/Molik if only they had more consistency

That's cos you didn't suffer the trauma of their match against Pierce/Golovin at Wimbledon!! That's three hours neither Bea nor myself are ever getting back! I think somewhere deep in the third set the tennis reached a level of such awfulness that we lost the will to live!!! We only stayed and tried our hardest to look interested cos Magui kept looking over at us!! I'm still recovering!! Oh and in Birmingham, their match against the British girls was so bad people were actually laughing .. andl I left and went to check the next days schedule in the middle of the match!

Seriously though. when they are playing well they are a great team, and a lot of fun to watch (a la in Eastbourne), but when they are playing badly, they are worse than awful!

My fave Magui doubles team is Jennifer/Magui! They should play together far more often! They get so excited about winning matches! They're hillarious together!

I love doubles!!! I went to the FO this year, saw some singles and some doubles matches, and the doubles are more entertaining imo!!
and teams? I liked Clijsters/Sugiyama a lot, and Ruano Pascual/Suarez, just because they always seem to have so much fun on the court!

COME ON KIM!

Thanks for everything Kim!!!

It's also my favourite team I would like to see them once playing together but tv doesn't show doubles very often

I saw Daniela & Dinara playing togheter at the FO this year, and I'm sorry to say, but it was a terrible match they played Weingartner and Craybas, so before the match I thought we would get a nice match, with D&D winning, but both played really below their level!! I made some pics however, so if you want them, just say it, ok?

COME ON KIM!

Thanks for everything Kim!!!

I love doubles, but I think they're a lot more fun to watch in person than on TV!
