The also appeared to have just the right combination of young/experienced, both with flair, but Elena more of the "grinder".
Elena's singles form is dire, so it may be that she's having some sort of a crisis/loss of form.
They're both such talented players in their own way, and I'd really like them to stay together. GoSandrine, I know what you mean about partnerships getting stale, but I'd really like them to get that elusive GS title.
Oh, and Sandrine and Monica are certainly no slouches as a pairing.
