Arantxa's Play In Singles and Dubs these past years....

Okay now that Arantxa has reached yet ANOTHER doubles final this year with Janette it makes me wonder...Arantxa has been doing so poorly in singles yet she has done exceptionally well in doubles these past 2 years! Winning the mixed in 2000 U.S. Open, finalist in mixed at 2000 Australian, and finalist at dubs in this years AO. Not to mention a couple SF's at Grand slams with Martina Navratilova! I also checked out her dubs results last year and she reached about 10 SF's with a couple of finals!....yet she has been losing early in singles tournaments for quite some time now....anyone know why??

Yeah, it's quite weird...

ASV has been playing crap in singles since she got married. I think she must be still affected by her divorce... somehow she seems to find some support on her doubles partners...maybe lol, I'm just guessing. Lately she obviously enjoys playing doubles more than singles, there's no doubt about that.

Lol no idea, this is a new X-file

Didn't she make the SF of last year's Wimbledon and U.S. Open.?Sorry this was all from the top of my head. But they did reach far I know that.

The truth is though that her doubles results haven´t been up to their usual standards either. Back in 1992 she won 10 doubles titles, plus an Olympic medal! I think its just simply that she lost some of her sparkle; hardly surprising after almost 15 years as a touring pro.

Well Family Circle Cup is over and Arantxa lost in the 2nd round in singles and reached the semifinals in doubles!!

Overall Arantxa's placement for the season ending championships is:

Singles: 46th
Doubles (team): 2nd!

And her W/L record so far is:

Singles: 6/9
Doubles: 21/6 (3 of those loses went to Raymond/Stubbs)

GOOD LUCK IN HAMBURG ARANTXA!!

Lisa and Rennae have their number

Oh well, it seems that aside from Pacific Life, when Arantxa does well in doubles, she does poorly in singles. Maybe we want an early loss in doubles so that she'll win the singles title in Hamburg .

Venus Williams-Ana Ivanovic-Serena Williams-Vika Azarenka-Caroline Wozniacki

McHale-Stephens-Watson-Robson-Townsend

Brodsky-Muhammad-Hampton-Keys-Crawford-Andrews-Hardebeck
