Question Why did Jelena DOkic and Nadia Petrova brak up???

THATS WHAT I WANT TO KNOW, they reached 3 consecutive finals last season at Moscow, Zurich and Linz, reached Two Tier ! semifinals this year at Indian Wells and Rome, (where they went onto the final, eventually losing to Kuz/Nav,) and managed to reach #5 on the race, then suddenly, after Wimbledon, they break up. The breka has caused both a bit of turmoil in their doubles careers, DOKIC has had extremely bad success since the split, however Petrova is regaining her ways with Shaughnessy, capturing MOSCOW!!
WHY DID THEY BREAK UP, when they were a major force together!!?!??!

it was during Wimbledon
Jelena had just lost her match to Sharapova and they had a doubles match a bit later.

it was a dreadful performance. Jelena's head was elsewhere, they didnt comunicate much then either.

and that was that.

i only saw a little and left it was that bad.

they've had pretty good results and that's with jelena being in poor and inconsistent form and nadia being inconsistent so imagine how good they could be if they fix those things (which i'm sure they will). hopefully they'll play again, it would be unfortunate if they didn't.

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.

I hope they team up again at Linz because they won two titles in last two years!

Inspiration is for amateurs

Sad news about Dokic/Petrova, they were one of my favorite up-coming teams.
