I'm not falling for that old routine. I know how badly you want to beat as great a team as Yasmine and I .

That's what I was concerned about - at least against Bye we have a chance.

Re: 3rd leg doubles entry list, wild cards and main draw

^^ ok so we don't stand a chance against a LL but will trash Kuilly and Geewizz if we were to win anyway? can you explain the logic?

The logic is that we can't beat them if we don't reach them.

You've got to be in it to win it. Anything can happen on the day - especially seeing that my doubles partner doesn't seem to want us to win anything so she might not even show up .

Oh I would love to kick your ass!! I'm not denying that. But I wouldn't complain if the lucky losers took care of you instead.

And how come that great team of yours has fallen down to #6 in the rankings? Having a bit of a rough patch there? Perhaps you should trust your partner more and not try to do everything yourself.

Provided we take care of lucky losers, it's on .

As for our dip in form, I expect that to resolve once we've overcome our team discord. Speaking of which ...

... unless we start winning something soon, you won't have any money to buy anything.

It's not like your singles career is bringing in any cash these days .

Is that another one of your strategies to motivate me? (I said it 100 times, it's the wrong one to undertake, ever).

Anyway I'm just planning on marrying some rich guy who can pay for all my shopping, then I can give up tennis altogether

I'm not trying to motivate you. Some of us are in this for the thrill of the game, not the money .
