Ai's ideal doubles partner?

Who do you think Ai should play doubles?

According to the past partners similarities:
*gotta have a good forehand
*gotta have a good baseline stroke
*must be Ai's good friends

I am sure no matter who she plays with, the pair will improve a lot together tho.

Go! Trojans!

Personally, I liked Ai played with Kim, and Meghann.
Also, for the purpose of "education", I want Ai to play other young Japanese players too!

She has played with Akiko and Saori a few times too.

Go! Trojans!

For success, it should be Ai and Kim. For friendship and a good time on court, maybe Ai should pair up with another Japanese player, although I reckon it'll be best for Ai to have a doubles partner who has enough power to make up for what Ai lacks (ala Kim Clijsters or Elena Dementieva).

I want her to either play with a Clijsters-like player (Not Sharapova) or a Japanese player.

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!
