Serena playing Hobart doubles too?

Her name isn't in the doubles draw, but according to this article she is.

Quote:
After the match, Williams said she was determined to re-establish herself at the top of world tennis.

Williams, who has also entered the doubles in Hobart, will play Czech Lucie Safarova in her next singles match.

Well, doubles would certainly give her more practice. That would be good thing.

I think it's just an error of the article, how many times have we seen articles with errors in it. I think plenty of times.

Re: Serena playing Hobart doubles too?

I don't think she's playing because her name isn't in the draw. But she really should be playing doubles regularly with Venus. They are too good to not play all the time. Does Serena actually realise how much more she can achieve and that she could put her name right at the top with Navratilova if she worked hard and played more. It would be a HUGE waste if she didn't go for the Boxed Set of Slams.

Yes. I know. with her sister Venus Williams.(not once a lot of times.). Plus i didn't forget Olympics Gold Medals they won. But she has not played doubles since June 2003 and decided to concentrate on Singles. So it would be funny to think she will play doubles again. Singles is her top priority.

I think now if any time serena needs to play doubles to get more matches under her belt and get in great shape. Unfortunately she hasnt since 2003

My Forever Fav: Jelena Dokic

Serena Williams, Ana Ivanovic
