Cool Pierce / Bhupathi def. Sherwood / Baltacha 63 64!

Their first round match is against British team Sherwood / Baltacha and if they win that they will have to play Cara and Wayne Black.

This is a decision for Mary. She should have played women's doubles instead of mixed. But good luck. Hope Mahesh can teach you how to play at net.

I thought I was surprised when I found out Myskina had entered mixed doubles - but this is even more unexpected. I'm quite happy though - Bhupathi should make an excellent partner (foil) for Mary. They may progress quite far me thinks.

I don't know why Mary is playing mixed instead of regular doubles... but it could help her return game for when she plays the Williams sisters and then Lindsay in the final lol

allez Mary!

Well I, for one, think this is kind of cool, it's rather unexpected and I think it could be a welcome change for Mary. She has always said that playing doubles helps her singles, and I would imagine more so if she's playing mixed doubles... it will give her a different perspective.


Go Mary and Mahesh!

Love it, so fun to see Mary doing something different, and why not play mixed doubles. And I mean, Mary has picked a good partner, Bhupathi is a former champion in mens doubles 1999, so he know how to play.

Good Luck...

MARY PIERCE

Mary and Mahesh won their first round match against the crowd favorite British pair. Hopefully Mary got some additional practice at net and some tips from Mahesh.
