Martina and Daniela are playing doubles!



Current Indian Wells Champion Daniela Hantuchova and Way (way) Former Indian Wells Champion

are playing doubles together at Miami as wildcards!!!!


Go Go Go Martina and Daniela!

Hopefully it will turn out like this in the end:



two beautiful talented girls winning!

Their first opponents are the 5th seed doubles team SREBOTNIK, Katarina (SLO)/SUGIYAMA, Ai (JPN) (and a former partner of DH).

if they win they will possibly meet LIKHOVTSEVA, Elena (RUS)/VESNINA, Elena (RUS)

then QF against 4th seeds PESCHKE, Kveta (CZE)/STUBBS, Rennae (AUS)

then SF against 2nd seeds BLACK, Cara (ZIM)/HUBER, Liezel (RSA)

then the finals against possibly the 1st seeds RAYMOND, Lisa (USA)/STOSUR, Samantha (AUS)

P.S. if anybody has a picture Martina's doubles win in Miami in 1998 and 1999 with Jana Novotna I'd appreciate it so much! I can't find any!

Re: Martina and Daniela are playing doubles!

I'm sure Martina's doing this so that she can get inside Daniela's head before and/or learn her weaknesses before the next singles encounter.

Probably.
But I think Dani is willing to risk it.
If they do well together, they might continue this partnership for a while and Dani might finally get her women's doubles slam with it.

Re: Martina and Daniela are playing doubles!

And this against Danis former partner Ai... I think they are the underdogs in that match though!

Wow...this would be an exciting (and hot) team to watch. Too bad doubles never gets coverage on TV

Re: Martina and Daniela are playing doubles!

Hingis is doing this on purpose to try and read Dani's game better, she doesn't want to lose to Dani 3 times in a row.

Martina wanted to play doubles with Daniela immediately after her comeback when it was tied 1-1 in H2H. Plus this partnership was confirmed before start of the Pacific Life Open 2007 where Martina suffered one of those defeats.

Martina's practiced with and played against Dani enough already in both singles and doubles to get a grasp for how to play her most effectively. She doesnt need to partner her in doubles to get a better sense of that.
