Hingis and Kournikova are the best team in doubles!!

I truley believe they are betther than any other team out there, even the Williams sisters . Im sure they will win this title. Anna's net game is impeccable and Im still amazed at the angles she can create, and the good sense she has on court. And those swinging volleys are lethal!!. Martina is of course on of the best volleyers out there. But most of the time, I had my eyes glued on Anna, lol . Anyway, when this team is on, like today, they are unbeatable!! And Hopkins and Granville are a decent doubles team.

azarenka - pavlyuchenkova - li - jankovic
garcia - bencic - paszek - rus - kanepi - kuznetsova - stephens
bouchard - karatantcheva - larcher de brito - voegele - lim - mladenovic

mary pierce - forever #1
vaidisova - kournikova - golovin - henin
the boys - federer - gasquet - del potro - haase - nishikori

Cool A challenge?

Who has more grandslam titles?

I think Pretty and Chucky have only won 2.

Don't the Sisters already have a career Grandslam?

How about this, since none of them will be doing anything on the weekend of the Indian Wells finals, why don't Pretty , Venus , Serena and Chucky all schedule a doubles exibition for that weekend.


If your fave's coach isn't Richard Williams, that's just her first problem...

The Williamses are the best by far. They will blast the opposition off the court.

Martina Navratilova says that Lisa Raymond and Hingis have the best volleys in women's tennis.

Martina is the best doubles player nowadays. She have won titles with all her doubles partners: Lucic, Novotna, Zvereva, Pierce, Schett, Gigi Fernández, Sukova, Arantxa, Davenport, Tauziat, and of course Kournikova.
don't forget that martina won the "doubles grandslam" in 1998 playing with Novotna and Lucic.
Together with Anna, Martina has obtained many tournaments:
Indian Wells, Season-Ending Championships (twice) , Australian Open (twice), Philadelphia, Zurich , Filderstadt, Moscow.

so they are the best team??? the answer is yes!!! but right now maybe none of them at her ideal level, so another teams can be a real threat to the spice girls. But i believe in them!

come on spice girls, take this title!!!!!!

I disagree and since the title of this thread is Martina and Anna not martina here is my evidence.

Venus and Serena

WINNER: 2002 - Wimbledon (w/V. Williams); 2001 - Australian Open (w/V. Williams); 2000 - Wimbledon (w/V. Williams), Olympics (w/V. Williams); 1999 - Roland Garros (w/V. Williams), US Open (w/V. Williams),




Anna and Martina

WINNER: 2002 - Australian Open (w/Hingis);1999 - Australian Open (w/Hingis)

I'm only counting the Top Tournaments:Grandslams and Olympics because they are the BIG ones and clearly v and s have outperformed a and m.

The WTA Women of Wonder Featuring....The Goddess: Venus Williams The Glamazon: Serena Williams The Lioness: Jennifer Capriati The High Priestess: Monica Seles The Saint: Kim Clijsters The Phoenix: Chanda Rubin The Bon Vivant: Amelie Mauresmo The Titan: Lindsay Davenport The Courtesan: Anna Kournikova The Exile: Martina Hingis The Sorceress: Anatasia Myskina The Minx: Maria Sharapova

I know you're very emotional when it comes to Chucky, but no one is saying she isn't a good doubles player, just (her team is) not as good as the Williams Sisters.

Is Chucky a part of any team with a career grandslam?

What's Chucky's head to head in doubles against the either sister?

I honestly don't know, but would love to know the answer.

I think Williams/Williams is the better team.

"They'll never win a grandslam title" LOL!
"They'll never be ranked #1" LOL!
"They'll never win a title on clay" LOL!
"All they do is hit hard" LOL!
"Venus will never win another Tier I title" LOL!
"Venus will never beat another top-5 player" LOL!
"Venus will never win another grand slam title" LOL!

The way I see it, they are the 2 top teams, but unfortunately they hardly play each other. If the 2 teams were to play more often I honestly believe that they would split most of the titles between them. The only team that is ever able to really challenge the Williams is Hingis/Kournikova, and it seems like the only team that has the ability to play at the same skill level in doubles as Hingis/Kournikova would be the Williams.

If my stats are correct, they have only played each other 1 time, and that was a 3 setter in the 99 French Final.

williams fans u r all in denial, firstly, hingis and kournikova are the best doubles team coz they have finness and variety in their game. secondly, it is alrite to say that the williams' are the best doubles team but the way u say it is so bloody provocative (i.e. pretty and chucky) and then we r the ppl that get in trouble coz u r arrogant and this is the problem that happens in most williams' threads!
