I've always thought Kirilenko takes her doubles pretty seriously. The only problem is she can sometimes stay back a bit too much in doubles but that might be a bit due to a lack of confidence and I think Lisa will encourage her to come forwards more.

I can see the pairing being beneficial for both players. I think Kirilenko really should have won a GS doubles title by now and playing with an experienced and focused doubles player should help her and I think Lisa will enjoy playing with someone who is good on all surfaces and is a good baseliner.
