Most ideal doubles partner for Jennifer

i pick Hingis because they had the best result together last year
although she won her only doubles title with Seles but we know they that was in 93 Italian Open which is 9 yrs ago...

id pick martina too because it doesn't matter who you are, you know you're going to win

Jens volleys would get even better and she may win a grand slam in doubles, or at least another titlle, which would be cool.

I wish she would play more doubles

I picked Martina too. They played dubles last year at the U.S. Open and I thought they were pretty good. I also wish she would play doubles more.

Go Jennifer!!
Good Luck in 2003!!

I'd say Martina too, but I wish she'd play with me! Not that I'd actually help her cause to win antyhing, but at least I could look at her!

Jen, is it cold out there or are you just pleased to see me?

Yes I think Martina is the obvious choice. I loved watching them play last year at the US Open, as they seemed to be enjoying each other, which is nice. I loved the match where they got swarmed by insects and could barely see the ball! I think they might have lost that match, not sure. Anna and Martina are too Baby Spice and Sporty, while Jen and Martina are more down to earth.

However I would think Martina would rather pair up with Anna....definitely stands a higher chance of winning titles and
Arantxa now partnering Daniela....so i think Seles is the only available option for her this year



Sometimes i think it would be great if we have a doubles exhibition matches featuring

Jennifer/Seles vs Graf/Sabatini
Anna/Hingis vs Martina N/Chris Evert
Williams sisters vs Raymond/Stubb

any comments??

I would like to see Jennifer and Monica playing together again They reached semis at Scottsdale last year, and they also played at Scottsdale in 2000

But Monica said she's not gonna play doubles at big events, just occasionally, so i think there is no big chance to see them play together again, but who knows ...

Forever No.1
Monica Seles
Thank you for great moments and inspiration!

I don´t think Martina would be such a good partner for Jen...´cause I don´t like Martina very much!

I voted for Arantxa...with all her practice it would be surely a very well double...

But in the end it´s Jen´s affair who´ll be her doubles partner.
as long as she decides the right one

I just hope she´ll play mixed doubles with her brother Steven again...they are so cute together

I would have to say Kim Clijsters! they are good friends and practice together at GS and other big tournaments. Kim is a good double player (see last year with Sugiyama), but unfortunately she has to slow down her shedule and probably won't play any doubles this year.

So Jen, I would say: Pick Dokic, very good doubles player OR Seles (although she can't volley very good with that two-handed fore- and backhand)

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

Trust me

Hi All,

I saw many of Jen's double matches for last 4 years, and in my opinion Jennifer had best chemistry with Anna Kournikova, believe it or not! They played together last at US Open 2000. Most, I was surprized that when needed one of them were taken great risky shots and deliver!

I hope we will see them again in doubles!

Ta Ta,
Eugene

Forever Jen's Fan
