You know, I've been wondering that question for sooooooo soooooo long!!!!
They are my dream doubles team! :hug:
I want them to play doubles together on a consistent basis, but looks like that won't happen cause Nastya already plays with Vera at most tournaments. GRRRRR!!

Maybe for Fed Cup finals coming up?? They've done that before with winning results.

They've played in Fed Cup doubles before.

Probably they weren't an effective team. Sveta is a better doubles player than them, so they probably should keep Sveta and LenaL as the doubles combo at Fed Cup.

I'm pretty sure those 2 get along pretty well actually.... She probably hates Kuznetsova, because she makes unsportswomanlike comments, and also said they didn't get along.

Yeah, Lina K is my 2nd favourite Russian woman, so hopefully her and Elena get together again. By the way, best wishes to Lina K for her wedding tommorow is it?

They could be a great team, I think. They are both top players and should both play a limited number of tourneys.... So they can play together.
On the other hand.... I think that they both need a partner with a relatively strong serve. Just to be safe on atleast half the service games....

I think I read Lena is not big on playing doubles, and I suspect the same might be true of Myskina.

I think it's a shame, because with the right partner Lena could definitely get some more hardware for her trophy case.

Just because someone is a great singles player doesn't necessarily mean they are any good at doubles, btw. Especially in the case of men. I can't think of any top ranking player who's good. The doubles specialists at best are ok singles players.

In the women's tour things are a bit different of course. But JHH isn't really known for being a doubles player, though as a singles player she is probably the most exciting player I've had the pleasure of watching. That backhand is just golden.

Don't remind me. I'd have become a Lena fan a lot sooner if she didn't use a two-handed backhand.

I'd like to add my 2c.
Imho Lena/Nastya aren't a good doubles pair now, not much understanding in between.
Lena used to be a good doubles player when she united with Lina and especially Janette, the last pair was strong and solid. After that, she lost most of her doubles skills and now she just starts to remember them, not very successfully yet.
I like her present pair with Ai, such experienced doubles player helps her to regain confidence a lot. I saw all their matches at the KC in life, and they showed good play. Wish they continue, and they can improve a lot.
I don't like Nastya much, and in doubles imho Vera is the true leader of their team. Yes, Nastya sometimes reads the play and makes good points, but not enough for a strong player.

Howabout Elena and Todd Woodbridge? I mean, he's a nice guy, and his net skills are outstanding, it would completely take away drilling the ball down the line off her serve. I think thats what Ai does a little, her net skills compensate for Elena's serve.
And if not mixed with Todd, then try Jonas Bjorkman

Well lately it looks like Todd is always teaming with Alicia Molik, so he probably won't be available.

One of the Bryans won the USO mixed doubles with Vera though.
