Lisa was talking around the doubles circuit. Her biggest win in 2004 was with Molik at Philadelphia. Molik was partnering with Kuznetsova though. Her plan to get comfortable with Navi for a good result at the Olympics backfired and her partnerships with Stubbs seems to have run its course. She talked to Gigi Fernandez who told her about this up-and-comer Australian with a good backhand volley who she was working with that would compliment Lisa. Lisa jumped on it and Gigi still worked with Stosur to help her on her volleys and doubles technique. When there's an amazing doubles player such as Gigi helping part of your team out, it can add up to a dominant team. Raymond/Stosur has been the dominant team for almost a year now. I don't see why it can't be that way for another couple of years. I just hope Lisa makes the right choice this time. I would rather win slams instead of messing up a good partnership for the posibility of a medal at Beijing.

Something needs to change.
