Question If the Williams Sisters play doubles against Justine & Maria, who you think will win?

Would current form and the surface make any difference?

Re: If the Williams Sisters play doubles against Justine & Maria, who you think will

Maria is bad at doubles and I have never seen Justine play. Serena and Venus are well-accomplished in doubles and have a career grand slam in that area.

Have to go with Rena and Vee here.

Never heard before Maria playing doubles....?

Well, Justine and Maria's combination looks quite bad, but I feel that they might work together well... one hits the shots from the baseline (Maria), and the other attacks at the net (Justine). Something like the "big guy, small guy" combination in football.

Might want to see them try playing together once... see whether they do go well together...

Re: If the Williams Sisters play doubles against Justine & Maria, who you think will

It really would depend on quality of serve. Venus would be the most likely to be broken out of all four. I think the match would depend on Venus serve. Sharapova can't volley as well as the other three, but if she serves well she can try to compensate.

It would be close? Yes, surface would matter. The edge does go to the Williams Sisters because of communication and previous success.

She played with Mirnyi at the US Open some time ago, didn't go TOO well. She also plays doubles in World Team Tennis, I saw her play against McEnroe and Harkleroad and she lost with her partner (forgot his name) but it was a pretty bad loss, like she wasn't doing things right.

Vee and Rena- They are proven doubles team.

The only other combination that would match them would be Davenport-Hingis

That is if you wanted former number ones to play together.

I think Kim will do good too pairing with anyone.

Serena and Venus have alot more experience at doubles which is entirely different to singles. Masha would be exposed because of her lack of volleying skill.

Re: If the Williams Sisters play doubles against Justine & Maria, who you think will

you would HAVE to say venus and serena... they are obvious great doubles players...

and despite henin and sharapova having some old success on the soubles court, neither play enough to be considered really

The sisters for sure.
I don't know how is Justine in doubles, but Maria's volley isn't so good..

Re: If the Williams Sisters play doubles against Justine & Maria, who you think will

Obviously Venus and Serena, the few double titles Maria has are already from a long time ago, I don't even remember Justine playing doubles.

They might make a good time after a while but Venus and Serena already know how to play together and have won some big double titles.

Justine´s best doubles rankings was 23(she won 2 titles)
Maria´s best ranking was 41 (3 titles) and she was mostly playing with Tanasugarn
