Find a doubles partner for Lena Dementieva..

Last year at about this time Lena played for the first time the doubles with Flavia Pennetta. They def. Jidkova/Petrova 76 in the third and went on winning matches..they won the LA doubles trophy and they were unstoppable at US open till the final against Raymond/Stosur. I was really happy then cos` it seemed Lena had found a very good doubles partner for her..
But since the beginning of 2006 they haven`t achieved anything remarkable except the Berlin final...and it`s August now..
Do you think it`s time to split? Is there someone Lena or Flavia would do better with?
I like Flavia too, but now they are not as good as last year as doubles pair.

I would like Lena to team up with Zvonareva..or Janette Husarova(it would be great) But Janette and Lena said they would never play together again..
..and I don`t see anyone else..
So Lena and Flavia, go on playing together....or?

btw.They get on well together so I don`t think they`re gonna split..they are good friends..

Simona Halep
Juan Martin Del Potro

i was thinking the same thing actually, but i think lena/flav will stay together, they were a bit unlucky at Wimbledon cause the match they lost was right after lena lost the singles in straights and they were hardly in great mood, i thik they will have a good run at the USO again tho

Yeah, it's true that Dementinetta have struggled of late. Sometimes it's tough draws, but also they've had some disappointing losses.


Personally, I'd like to see Elena pair with Nicole Vaidisova, who is currently playing with embarassment-to-Canada Maureen Drake. Elena and Nicole have played together before and had some success.

Another option I like would be the popular Maria Kirilenko, whose game might complement Elena's a bit better.

poor Flavia

thats would be a dream partnership , they would actually be really good together, but unfortunatley its never ever gonna happen, since i dnt think they like each other after several incidents and Vee always says she only plays with Serena in womens dubs but we can live in hope
the wta needs to watch out for the LenaVee partnership

Do you know why they said they'd never play together again ?! What the hell happened between them ?!
They definitely were a great team !! Reached the US Open and won the Porsche Race in the end of 2002.

Now I'm curious to know what made they split up !!!!!!
Please, someone answer me !!

Oh, and I like Lena and Flavia playing doubles together !!
Though they've done nothing special lately

Why do Lena and Husarova never want to play together again?

IMO, Lena and Flavia are a great match.
Also, Lena and Nastya would be a good team I guess.

1. Venus Williams
2. Na Li
3. Serena Williams
4. Jelena Jankovic
5. Ai Sugiyama

didnt they have a fight at the start of 03 because Lena wanted to cut back on her dubz to concentrate on singles and Jeannete wasnt very happy or something like that
