Re: 2007 Wimbledon Ladies' Invitation Doubles

Go CONCHI and Gretchen Magers whoever she is!!!!!

SERENA WILLIAMS: I played her three times and twice we went to three sets, so it's definitely no easy way of playing Conchita Martinez, especially on clay. She's a clay court specialist, and you know, she's a Grand Slam champion. You can never take that lightly.... I think I had a very tough match my second round myself in this event because Conchita Martinez is a very good player, so that was definitely a tough match...

Gretchen Magers is an American who had some good results at Wimbledon in the late 80's. She was a competent player.

Some fantastic doubles players in that group. Love the Novotna/Sukova combination.

Re: 2007 Wimbledon Ladies' Invitation Doubles

Have they changed the eligibility rule this year in order to have a better field? I thought players have to have reached SF/F in singles or doubles to qualify - Croft surely only ever did that as a junior..?

Re: 2007 Wimbledon Ladies' Invitation Doubles

I love this event, it's my favourite part of going to wimbledon! Although as I'm not going this year, I'm glad I'm not missing Ginny and Wenders!

Pam last played this event in 2001, when she partnered Virginia Wade....they lost 6-0 6-0 in one of their matches, it was an absolute massacre, and Pam couldn't even barely serve! In 2002, I spoke to Pam and asked why she wasn't playing this event and she said she was so embarrassed after that double bagel, she decided she'd never play it again! Poor Pam

They should go back to the true legends and oldies - and why is Annabel Croft in the draw?!?

Rosalyn Nideffer didn't do much at Wimbledon, either. I guess they needed to fill in the draw . I was available!!!
