Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

Any word on who Lisa's teaming up with next year? Seeing as Petrova/Srebotnik have parted ways, I'm hoping Lisa snatches up Kata!

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

Kata would be a fun choice, I would really like to see Lisa get a partner who is focused on doubles only so we can avoid the injury/withdrawals of 2013. Not that you can't be injured playing doubles, but when your priority is singles it seems to happen more often.

Same here, but I could settle with a singles player with a top-30 rankings. I think Hercog-Raymond has potential but I can also see it unfolding in a not too dissimilar way to the hopefully now-defunct Raymond-Robson pairing. Not only is Polona very injury-prone, she probably won't always enter the same tournaments as Lisa, plus I worry for the latter's ranking post-Miami. If she takes a hit, they might even struggle to get into some of the bigger events.

Btw I recently got my hands on a copy of Lisa's mixed doubles bronze medal match from the Olympics. Very happy viewing!

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

At this point, I just want a steady healthy partner. It would be good to give Srebotnik a shot. Maybe Peschke again? Not sure if her and Groenefeld are teaming up again in 2014. I like Hercog as well, but I agree that she is way too injury prone.

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

From what I understand Raymond is starting the year with Hercog. Hopefully they will pick up where they left off minus Polona's injuries! :-)

Andrea is partnering with Safarova, right? Not sure who Srebotnik is partnering with- Jankovic, maybe?

Srebotnik is back with Peschke! So ALG is open?

Urgh really? Hercog hasn't entered any warm-up events so I assume she's still injured.

I really like the sound of ALG/Raymond.

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

I think Hercog/Raymond are playing Hobart, Oz Open and Paris and then will see how they are doing. Hopefully Polona will be injury free and they can do well together!

Is Srebotnik/Peschke confirmed?

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

I don't care, do your best in women's doubles, but the real objective is winning the Aussie Mixed title. Get a good man, Lisa!

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

Well, according to the Polona Hercog Cheering Thread, Polona is injured again and not playing doubles at the Open. Looks like Lisa's 2014 is starting on the same note 2013 ended! Such bad luck!

I guess she will have interim partners for Hobart and Melbourne ... will be interesting to see who she pairs with for the rest of the year! Hopefully somebody injury free!

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

^Hopefully Hantuchova might be available. They had some solid results at the back end of last year.

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

this is reason I worry about hercog being a regular partner. She seems too injury prone, she also seems hungry, someone should make that girl a sandwich haha
