Info on the doubles Championships

I could not find many things from the official website but here are what I discovered today:

Seeds 1 are Black and Huber, and unexpectedly seeds 2 are Srebotnik and Sugiyama, and not Chan and Chuang who were the second team to qualify.

No ad, Super Tie break and Electronic Line Calling will be used for all matches.

More info can be found on www.blackandhuber.com

Cara Black - Liezel Huber - Mary Pierce

Chanelle Scheepers - Abigail Spears - Vladka Uhlirova - Mervana Jugic-Salkic - Francesca Schiavone -Tsvetana Pironkova - Lisa Raymond - Sophie Lefèvre...

Re: Info on the doubles Championships

I think the doubles draw is made on Thursday. I believe there is no automatic placement of the 3rd and 4th seeds.

Re: Info on the doubles Championships

Wow, that's pretty cool that Ai & Kata are number two seeds... Won't have to face Bluber first.
But it doesn't matter, teams 3 & 4 are amazing anyways.
It's so hard to win YEC, even if it's only two matches.

I hate that it isn't full matches though.

Hantuchova/Sugiyama def. (1) Black/Huber 6-7(0) 6-3 7-6(10) saving SEVEN match points, down 2-5 in the third, and down 2-6 in the third set tiebreak in three hours

Ai Sugiyama. Jie Zheng. Zi Yan. Tamira Paszek.
Yaroslava Shvedova. Nuria&MariaJose. Yung-Jan Chan. Elena Vesnina. Flavia Pennetta.

Re: Info on the doubles Championships

It is stupid though, I mean really, three matches, and they're not playing singles for two weeks prior to this and two months after, they can and should use the traditional format.

Re: Info on the doubles Championships

Strange how the WTA is trying to get doubles in the spotlight, but yet they treat it as a second-class sport with all the rule changes. This is professional tennis, not high-school league tennis!

Re: Info on the doubles Championships

I guess Huber will be no.1 after the tournament, no?
Kata and Ai could be as high as no.3 and 4 in the ranking (if they win), I believe!

Go! Trojans!

Cara and Liezel will be tied number one no matter what happens with at least 5145 points.
Only Kata Srebotnik could become number 3 before Raymond, but only if she wins, and for 5 points!!! (3965 vs 3960). If she makes the final, she becomes 4th (3740 vs 3626 for Stosur). If she does not, she is 5th at the best.

Sugi can become 5th if they win the YEC, and not better than 6th if they do not.

Chan and Chuang could become 4th and 5th if they won....

Cara Black - Liezel Huber - Mary Pierce

Chanelle Scheepers - Abigail Spears - Vladka Uhlirova - Mervana Jugic-Salkic - Francesca Schiavone -Tsvetana Pironkova - Lisa Raymond - Sophie Lefèvre...
