Doubles dream team!

Just a random thought but i think an amazing doubles team would be:

Mauresmo & Henin

I know it will never happen as they concentrate on their singles.

But think about it both have amazing volleys, and power from the baseline and their serves are good. Plus they get on well.

I know doubles is a completely different game but I think they would dominate.

Can you think of any other good pairs?

Re: Doubles dream team!

I think Momo/Juju won't be a good team as doubles players don't use to be GREAT singles players because they concentrate their mind in just doubles (the great example of Cara or Liezel).

I think a great pair would be Suarez/Black

Re: Doubles dream team!

Henin & Schnyder

I don't know why, but Ivanovic/Schnyder comes to my mind

Oh and last... Ivanovic/Jankovic

Henin, Schnyder, Jankovic, Aga Radwanska, Cornet

Re: Doubles dream team!

I think Henin and Sharapova would be great. I don't think momo and juju would be great since they play a very similar game style. I also would love juju and fed for mixed. Or even Davenport and Henin. Martina and Fed. I think all of these would be great.

Those are really bad mixtures. You're just choosing top players and mixing them. Henin is good in singles, but she definitely has little experience when it comes to doubles. I don't have anything against her, but Hennin and Clijsters used to play occasionally and garnered little success. So that's basically what I mean.
