WOW.....bizarre mixed doubles pairs @ Wimbledon!

I never expected these players to join forces so this is pretty cool.

Mahesh Bhupathi IND
Mary Pierce FRA

Olivier Rochus BEL (12)
Kim Clijsters BEL (12)

Mark Knowles BAH (8)
Venus Williams USA (8)

Mike Bryan USA (5)
Martina Navratilova USA (5)

Jonas Bjorkman SWE (3)
Lisa Raymond USA (3)

Dominik Hrbaty SVK (14)
Elena Likhovtseva RUS (14)

Todd Perry AUS
Els Callens BEL

Kevin Ullyett ZIM (4)
Liezel Huber RSA (4)

Michael Kohlmann GER
Anastasia Myskina RUS

Andy Ram ISR (16)
Conchita Martinez ESP (16) I thought Conchita was a lesbian.

Andrew Murray GBR
Shahar Peer ISR

And Daniela Hantuchova is not playing mixed doubles even though she just won a grand slam mixed doubles title.

you get shocked way too easily. i really fail to see the shock value in 2 players from the same country combining to play mixed doubles together. really it's just like exhibition for money.
mahesh and mary have both been around forever,
kim and oli have probably known each other forever,
knowles and venus or serena have played together in the past i believe,
bryan and nav are both american great dubs players,
bjorkman and raymond have both played dubs forever,
but yes, some of them are weird.

Pfft no, a truly bizarre mixed doubles partnership would be Father Christmas and Katherine Hepburn.

it is pretty well known that gays relate best to the opposite sex in terms of friendship, not everything is about sex you know

Peer / Murray = interesting team

ugh no. i don't get shocked too easily. you just make bad assumptions thinking Wimbledon is FED CUP. In case you haven't noticed from past grand slam mixed doubles draws, players from the same country do not often opt to play together. Wimbledon is not Fed Cup. and you said "kim and oli have probably known each other forever" so it's not shocking to see them play together.

using the word, "probably" really cast incredible self doubt in your argument so if you don't even know the extent of Kim and Olivier's relationship then why you be frontin'?

Then by your definition, every mixed doubles pairing is normal. Even Marcelos Rios/Monica Seles

Leander and Martina have not split up. He is injured and needed to withdraw from Wimbledon (and Halle, or Queen's - I don't remember which one), so Nenad Zimonjic and Martina Navratilova were without doubles partners for Wimbledon. So Martina found Mike as temporary replacement.

I am really surprised to see the team of Anastasia Myskina and Michael Kohlmann. I know and like Michael, but he is not a very well-known player to the fans and probably not to female players either. So I am wondering who asked who and how they got to know each other.

Martina and Nenad should team up
