Come in & discuss ALG`s 2010 doubles partnership
I want to ask you wether Srebotnik, King, Schnyder or someone totally different should be Anna´s 2010 partner.
I am under the impression that
a) Schnyder-connection worked 2008 because of the surprise effects of a lefty+top 10 singles player
b) King-connection mostly worked in minor events but her power is limited in Grand Slam fields
c) Though they won Linz today, Srebotnik just came back from injury
So how´s free 2010 anyway and to discuss in addition to those 3:
Peschke? (if Raymond is retired?)
Raymond? (if Peschke skips the team?)
Stubbs? (if Stosur concentrates on singles)
Medina? (VRP is retiring)
Hantuchova? (is playing less doubles 2010)
Petrova? (is she to team with Mattek again?)
Personally, I think that ALG would work quite well with Petrova if she´s to play as much doubles. I´d also tend to believe if Srebotnik comes back full swing, she´s a good combination. I just don´t see Patty being as keen on doubles in her -maybe- final year as she was in the final months of 2008. As with King, I doubt she´s as high class as a singles top act could be. With Stubbs or Peschke or Raymond, she´d add the doubles FINESSE to her game, but I see some of those retiring or sticking to their partners over the year. I´ve the impression too that Medina will choose the next best Spanish singles player in Suarez Navarro to build her up for doubles. Spanish players always team Spanish.
