Something I found odd from the Medibank

OK maybe its just me but today at the Medibank Justine and Sveta were practicing together. I cant ever remember of would ever have thought that the world number 1 and 2 would practice together, it just seems odd to me. It was a great practice session but I just would never have thought it would happen. Could you have imagined Hingis and Davenport or Steffi and Monica doing the same thing. Tell me what you think or is it just me being silly.

Was that when they oddly played doubles together and they were friends before it went a little sour

Re: Something I found odd from the Medibank

Henin was absoloutly pouding the ball she actually seems to hit harder than Sveta but Sveta hits with a great deal of spin.

It's not the first time they practice together. They are on good terms with each other. Their coaches are also befriended.

Re: Something I found odd from the Medibank

It's not that odd at all. :S I know Hingis practiced with Capriati even a few years ago, don't think they were 1 and 2 at the time though, but is it that big of a deal? Sveta and Justine seem like humble people that tread the WTA carefully.

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?

Re: Something I found odd from the Medibank

Justine and Sveta get along well, it's not the first time they practice together.

I saw them practice together at FO 2006, on Saturday just before the beginning of the tournament. At the end of their practice, they were laughing together about something Sveta's coach told her (in spanish). 2 weeks later they were playing each other in the final.

Hello luck! We're waiting for you, thanks!

justine also practices with jankovic sometimes

Re: Something I found odd from the Medibank

This is really nothing new (as other posts have said), they always practice together. I've seen them practice together on numerous occasions

She does hit harder than Sveta! It's quite amazing when you see Justine live at how hard she hits the ball.

Re: Something I found odd from the Medibank

I'm not sure she really hits much harder than Sveta. The amount of topspin Sveta puts on the ball is very deceptive.
