I think they can do well but it would be asking a lot for them to win it. I'm just glad they are playing and will be happy with them making it a few rounds.

I'd be shocked if they didn't get at least to the quarters

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.

I think they should definately make it to the quarters but then they might face Srebotnik/Sugiyama who have been playing very well lately.

It's very hard to predict how they will do since they havent played in so long though.

I'd be shocked if they didn't win. Who is going to stop their onslaught? They are too strong IMO to lose.. especially on this surface.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

Srebotnik/Sugiyama
Black/Huber
Raymond/Stosur
Molik/Santangelo
Chan/Chuang
etc

They will be hard to stop but there are so many other strong doubles teams out there.

They will always be title contenders at any event whenever they play doubles together. I say they'll probably reach the semis at least if not further.

As far as I'm concerned, far enough to beat Lisa Raymond is far enough for me!

i have a feeling if one or both of them gets far in the singles draw they'll withdraw from doubles. I don't think they're in it to win the title. mostly cuz they've won it twice already. And They both want to win every major title out there at least once. singles,mixed, doubles, and olympic.
