Which WTA player do you think Elena should pair with to win a doubles GS trophy?

Personally, I'd like to see Elena pair with Lina K again. They've had some notable success and Elena did reach no.5 in the doubles ranking when she had Lina as her main partner.

I think Anastasia Myskina could also be a very good partner :)

I would love for her to play with Lina K again... they're my two favourites... They could go well if Lina K could stay uninjured and meet her potential. They've already had success, and they get along really really well, which is always a bonus.

Lena had her best success with Janette Husarova in 2002. Maybe they can rekindle the fire.

Others who would make great partners:

Ai Sugiyama - very positive attitude like Lena

Lina K - old partners reunite

Anastasia Myskina - they had a tough draw at the Olympics, shouldn't give up on each other

Elena Bovina - they should be able to cover the entire court without moving


And now for some wishful thinking.....

Martina Hingis - Lena gets to play with one of her favorite players

Anna Kournikova - Attack of the blonde ponytails, Elena guards the baseline and Anna plays the net

Nadia Petrova - she'd have to drop Shaughnessy.

Ai and Elena may do O.K., but I don't think it will ever happen on a full-schedule basis. Ai wants/needs a partner who'll commit to at least 95% of all doubles-matches. And since Elena is far more focused on her singles, I don't think a Ai/Elena partnership will go anything beyond an occassional one.

Oh yeah, now that's what I'd want to see :hearts:

It also quells those "Elena hates Russian girls who lived abroad" rumours.
