I was thinking that, could be interesting. I really doubt Black/Rodionova will play together again next year, so I'm still holding out for a full time Black/Raymond. It's LONG overdue.

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

Raymond and Robson took the first set 6-3. The live score suggests they're playing very solidly so far.

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

They won the second 7-5. On to Errani/Vinci in the semis. Probably.

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

Wow, what a huge win! I would really like to see them play together. I doubt we'll be able to though, unless they make the final. Hopefully they'll surprise again and upset Sara & Vinci... GL!

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

This is Lisa's first SF since New Haven Not really counting the YEC, since they autmoatically start in the SF.

Maybe they will continue, who knows. Robson said in their interview that they will hopefully "continue to improve". I don't know if she meant as a team or just as the tournament progresses. She doesn't have a doubles ranking if I recall, and she said she's only been able to play the Slams in doubles because of that. Seems like they are the perfect balance for one another, and Laura actually has some pretty good hands at the net.

Errani/Vinci would be a tall task, but I'm hoping for the best. They haven't been at their best lately, so this would be a great opportunity for them to take them out.

Interesting that Laura and Lisa seem to have done better together than Lisa and Sam in 2013. Obviously, the latter pairing has been very successful in the past, which is probably why they partnered up again after the split with Huber. Though, with Stosur having every reason to prioritise her singles career over doubles and not much to show for their renewed partnership I don't think it'll last the year.

I think she meant as the tournament progresses, she referenced her volleys being better since R1 as an example. Also, Laura does have a doubles ranking. However she doesn't often play doubles outside slams or FedCup though; which is why it's so low. When you only played 3 tournaments last year, you don't have many opportinities to score p;oints (unless you're winning, in which case you'd probably play more anyway). Before this tournament she was in the mid 200s. If Lisa/Laura lose to Errani/Vinci she'll be ranked around 120. Her highest ranking was back in 2010, after reaching the quarters at the Australian Open. She clearly is a decent doubles player, and I think doubles suits her game nicely as well.

Errani/Vinci at this point are the Serena Williams of the doubles world. Sure, they might not be playing their best, but odds are them not at their best is better than 99% of doubles pairings out there. Could Laura/Lisa beat them? Possibly. If both girls can continue to serve solidly, and Laura doesn't commit UEs on every other forehand they've definitely got potential for the upset. It's quite unlikely, but then who'd have bet on the team reaching the semis in the first place?

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

Woah. I thought they had a good chance as I guessed Sara and Roby would be a bit tired but I didn't think it would be this decisive!

Wonder if they'll play Charleston next week?

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

Petrova/Srebotnik next. They are 1-4 in Finals together the past year and a half. Make it 1-5, Rayson.
