Surprising Doubles Partnerships

Looking through Arantxa's results and the amount of different partners Arantxa has played with, some of them were kinda surprising - Torres, Husarova, Basuki, Dokic, Sidot, Kournikova, Coetzer, Davenport, Shriver, Schett, McNeil, Spirlea, Pierce, McQuillan, Chris Bailey at Wimbledon

Also saw a few other strange teams - Capriati/Graf, Seles/Palaversic, Grande/Seles, Coetzer/Novotna

Anyone else seen any teams that they wouldn't really expect?

Capriati/Hantuchova at Wimbledon this year.

I didn't think Capriati was interested in doubles.

Since September 2002:
33 singles titles
33 doubles titles
7 mixed doubles titles
7 Fed Cup titles

Debut record: 14 out of 24
Retired: Oct. 23, 2006

You wonder why Justine picked her?! Maybe they are friends?

To me it is amazing how Martina Hingis can pick anybody as a partner and win a GS!! She has won GS`s with I think 3 or 4 DIFFERENT partners!! Incredible man.....that tells you how good a doubles player she is. I mean Martina N did win all those GS´s with Pam....I mean everybody can do that, but the win 4 different partners that is something!!

Yes, Martina Hingis is a great doubles player. however, you kinda need to check some facts about Martina Navratilova. She won grand slam doubles titles with Chris Evert, Billie Jean King, Pam Shriver, Betty Stove, Andrea Temesvari, GiGi Fernandez, Anne Smith and Hana Mandlikova. A few more than four partners

Anyway I was really surprised to see the Hingis / Seles partnership in Oz 2001.

Seles / Palaversic played this year at Charleston. They beat Arendt / Huber in the first round but didn't play the second round match due to injury.
