I see it as an increased comfort level with other players. Also, it could simply be a desire to play more doubles, which can be difficult when your doubles partner avoids entering the same tournaments as you.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

yes, not a big deal at all.

its like Arantxa playing doubles with Rossana or Svetlana. They're all friends, but theyre not doubles partners (on a weekly basis). It doesnt mean that suddenly Arantxa quit with Daniela!

OVER REACTING!

I Will Always Love You Arantxa!!!!

Serena Williams to head strong Leipzig field


BERLIN - (LAWN TENNIS)World number one Serena Williams will be the main attraction of the Leipzig women's tennis tournament starting on September 23, organisers have said.


Serena, who beat sister Venus in the U.S. Open final on Saturday, is lined up to play both singles and doubles on her first appearance in the eastern German city.


Her doubles partner will be fellow American Alexandra Stevenson, who reached the semi-finals at Wimbledon in 1999.


Three other top 10 players, Yugoslavia's Jelena Dokic and Belgians Justine Henin and Kim Clijsters, are in the singles draw for the $585,000 event.

I think it would be the first time one sister has played doubles with someone else. Can anyone confirm that?

Serena Williams is trying to help Alexandra get her first title. She is going to help her get some self confidence. Serena is looking out for her sista', and working on her volleying skillz in the process.

By the way, I believe the article just a feeling about this. I think barring injury they are going to play doubles together.

I don't see any big deal since Venus isn't playing this tournament. I can't see Serena playing with Alex if Venus was also playing IMHO.

Me thinks Serena is helping Alex get some $$ so that she can pay when they go out since they're party buddies

SERENA is chasing perfection on all surfaces

They should just give the title to Serena because there is no one in the field that can even keep up with her at this time.
