Congrats to Paola/Vivi in winning the doubles title...the sad part of it is ..they have garnered no headlines in doing so...not a note in my local paper today...nothing mentioned on TV either..so their victory fell short on publicity...now, had Anna K. and Martina won....that would have been different so its a little unfair I suppose..that winners should languish in the shadows!
Congrats to Paola! What a great year for her. Quarters of RG in singles, 2 slam doubles titles, and now she's #1! IIRC, she's the first Argentine to achieve a #1 ranking in the Open era. (Vilas was voted #1 by some writers once, but never reached it on the computer.)
