Did the #1 doubles team in the world play together? No.
Did the #2 doubles team in the world play together? No.
Did any 2 Top Ten doubles players, play together that had frequently before? No.
The field had good players, with players that they had no experience with. Second of all, FLUKE. Third of all, you don't know your tennis, because the Olympics are not at all seen highly upon in the tennis world.
I don't recall Steffi Graf saying:
"I liked the Wimbledon titles, but it was the gold medal that did it for my career."
Secondly, China places more money into tennis than Canada, without a doubt. So the western world this, and that, it comes down to funding. CHina placed much funding into sports, Canada into welfare of its people.
Lastly, Mary was born in Canada. Shuai born in China. Would you say Shuai's Chinese? Because I would say Mary's Canadian. Get a life, or maybe die if you have a minute.
