Re: Ana's unprofessional conduct...
Happens all the time?
Yes it does, but that doesn't make it right! I love doubles and get annoyed that it is now treated the way it is by players. Long gone are the days of Martina and McEnroe. Hingis also loved doubles and brought so much to them. She actually preferred doubles to singles believing she was a better doubles player. The best matches I have often seen when going to tournaments have been doubles as you see such a variety of shots and there is often great sportsmanship.
This isn't an Ana malaise, it's across the board. I think the players are silly as doubles enhances a player's game and they can enhance their bank balance too. There is more in it for them than they may think!
Monica Seles Superstar. Her fans never forget.
Players I root for now: Heather, Laura, Lucie, Marion, Serena, Simona, Svetlana, Venus, Vika. And Caroline.
Doubles and Mixed Doubles are fun and underrated.
