I was reading about there win on RG.com when I found something I didn't know:
'Suarez and Ruano Pascual hold the second-longest streak of consecutive major doubles finals reached - nine between Roland Garros 2003 and Roland Garros 2005. Only Martina Navratilova and partner Pam Shriver have fared better, appearing in eleven finals between Wimbledon 1983 and the Australian Open 1985. '

Do you think that they will make a few more finals & beat Martina & Pam's streak??

I think Wimbledon will be the hardest but they can definitely do it...


Edit: They didn't play in the AO doubles, I didn't think they did so I checked. I guess one was injured & it doesn't count towards their streak.

Didn't they lose in the semis at Wimbledon last year ? :confused:

Actually from RG 2002 until Wimbledon last year they were on a streak of 9 consecutive finals. Black and Stubbs stopped them ;)

OK thanks, I wasn't sure, I was going by what Roland-Garros.com said about their win.

Do they just make stuff up???? I mean what was the point in writing an entire false paragraph that could have easily been checked.

A mistake on the official site? Quel suprise! And this is tennis' official portal to the world. No wonder the sport is viewed as inept.

They're not alone. There were various reports that Pierce was the first women's over-30 slam singles finalist since Navratilova at Wimbledon in '94. (Actually it was Graf, 5 years later.) Some did get it correct by identifying Pierce as theoldest since Nav (4 months older than Steffi was).

Or the news reports that kept mentioning Mauresmo's four "consecutive" Italian Open finals, for that matter.
