here are my comments:
much overlap from the singles list!! i thought there would be a touch less

many ties!!
lindsay/natasha/lisa and i can't believe lindsay has 8 of 10 at australia, it's like her record at the us open in singles!

kind of surprised ai has 11, she's my most shocking that's in the top 10
likhovtseva apparently loves the us open also...odd one
did jana stop going to australia in the end? otherwise wow that she had no SFs in the last 10 years
and interesting stats for chanda, 1-1-1-1, too funny!

Think it's interesting that Serena and Venus won 6 slams out of the 8 times they made the SF. How many doubles slams does Zvereva have?

in this period of time (last 40 majors) natasha has 6, but i'm pretty sure she has more over her career

Davenport and Hingis are probably the only elite players in the top ten. This shows they are truely great, versitile, and consistent players. Its a sign of greatness ;)

The Williams' sisters record post-semis is indeed impressive and I hope we get to see them play more doubles.

I believe you confused Liezel Huber and Liezel Horn...They are the same person, just married :p I'm pretty much sure she's reached semifinals of a major more than one time.

Oh NATASHA won 18 doubles slam overall, definitely a top 3 all time great doubles player.

I'm not surprised with Ai as a former #1 doubles player, I'd expect it.

aus open 95 didn't count because i said last 40, and aus 95 is not one of the last 40...

that can't be true about gigi, because i counted them by hand and it isn't...
if one of them is aus 95, than that is one less, but i think you are mistaken otherwise, plus all my numbers add up

lol, sorry if came across as nit picking

was just to let u know

pretty impressive that zvereva has more semis than either suarez and ruano pascual, her very best years were pre 95 and theirs have been in the last 10 yrs
