It's the first time for Na and Jelena to play doubles match together,and both of them are not doubles experts.
I think it's necessay for M.Navratilova to think about whether she need a full doubles schedule after this defeat.

As I said in another similar thread, Martina has not played since November, has just come back from injury and is playing with a new partner. Give her a chance!

She and Huber played really bad in the first set,and Na/Jelena is a new pair as well.
:) I expect to see her better perfomance next time.

That was Navratilova's first tour doubles match since the 2005 US Open - almost 6 months ago - and as, has been said, she has only just come back after surgery. The last time Liezel and Martina played together (1 match) was Amelia Island, April 2004. Previous to that, it was Sarasota in Spring 2003 (which they won).

Liezel has played Sydney, Melbourne, Paris, Bangalore and now Doha in the last 7 weeks (i.e. one week "off") with 4 different partners.

Let's give them some time to settle down, train and practise together!
