Arantxa is back in mixed doubles after Roland-Garros, but this time with a new partner...Jared Palmer, whom she has won 2000 US Open mixed doubles with, her last Grand Slam title before her retirement. Arantxa and Jared will face in the first round Hantuchova/Ullyett. In the second round, they'll meet Black/Black...6th seed. But as we all know, Arantxa and Jared have alot of chances to win this event... Good luck team.
Daniela is only a good doubles player BECAUSE of Arantxa. Arantxa is a far superior and far more experienced than Daniela. Also, Jared and Arantxa have played together for years, for this reason, ASV and Jared Palmer will demolish daniela and Kevin.
We Will Always Remember Arantxa!!! A legend forever and always!
Aranxta is old and isnt as athletic as she used to be so she will not be a big threat
Just wanna remember you that Arantxa is still in better shape than almost every top players at this time... Do you think Venus is in good shape? What about Jennifer Capriati? Nadia Petrova? Lindsay Davenport?
33 is old !!!???
Arantxa is still athletic, look at her body at this time! Have you seen some pictures of her playing Roland-Garros or smaller tournaments before? You should! You'll quickly understand that she's still very athletic.
Arantxa taught Daniela how to play doubles...Who has the edge??? Anyway, Arantxa always has the edge!
I *totally* agree, Hector, she just got *really* unlucky with both her draws. Daniela/Kevin also are GS champs, tho I forget which one (Oz Open?)
Anyway, as you say, on to the Olympic Games. I heard Arantxa will also play doubles with Anabel in Stockholm (no Montreal, rats!) and maybe other tournies too.
She met AO 04 winners Bovina/Zimonjic at RG and lost, now Danka/Kevin are AO champs 02 (and Danka also won Wimby with Friedl), that's really annoying but still hope that Arantxa will play US Open, it's impossible to have such a bad draw even there.
It looked like Daniela had the edge today because they whipped them off of the court! Good luck Daniela in your latter rounds.
The second set was close and several games went to deuce. I think Arantxa needs more match play but she's looking in good shape

If I could just go back... if I could rub everything out... starting with myself.
"Her enduring legacy is far more emotional, instead of statistical..."
"To watch Arantxa Sanchez Vicario play tennis was to rediscover the reason why we fell in love with the game in the first place."
