For the 2007 Australian Open wouldn't it be really good to see Hingis paired with Federer to play mixed doubles?

When was the last time Federer played doubles in a Grand Slam tournament? They should consider it.

What other pairings of top ATP and WTA players would you really like to see play at the upcoming Grand Slam event in Melbourne, Australia.

Sugiyama/Mirnyi
They played once before, but lost 10-8 to Ivanovic/Zimonjic in the first round RG.
I'd love to see it again!

They played mixed once at the Hopmen Cup I believe. But I may be wrong. I'd love to see this happen. Two geniuses combining forces.

I think Federer's game would really work well being paired with Hingis or Henin Hardenne.

And I could see Nadal being paired with Sharapova; their basic gritty formular is very similar to one another.

Venus or Serena could pair up with James Blake.

I think it would be really great if Tati and Richard Gasquet teamed up again

I'm not sure Martina's ego could handle playing second fiddle to Roger :lol:

She wasn't second fiddle to Kournikova by a longshot.

Looks maybe... game, no way!!

Well obviously. But Martina knew that Anna would fill more seats than her, per se.

I wish I had footage of them two fighting in the Chile exhibition... just for laughs

Martina was the queen. Anna just thought she was the queen. :devil:

well, martina played with roger when roger was a nobody then. i am not sure he even won his first title yet.
i doubt they bother about their egos. Hingis once dominated, and now Federar is dominating.
But I am really sure they would not play mixed doubles for slams, at least for now. Federar is really focused in his singles. He does not even want to play Davis Cup first round because he doesnt wasnt to get distracted.

Federer & Hingis would be a great mixed doubles pair. they would probably like go in2 every tournament being somewhat the favourites i reckon. but i doubt they would pair up 4 the aussie open mixed doubles though.

i would like 2 see sharapova & safin pair up together in mixed dubs as well even if most ppl would like 2 see sharapova pair up with roddick.

serena has paired up with mirnyi b4 in mixed doubles. they paired up in 1998 or 1999 (not sure the exact year though) & played wimbledon & the US Open together coming away with both titles interestingly enough.

hantuchova can team with just about any male player and still win a mixed gs :p

I doubt Martina will ever play mixed doubles at a grand slam ever again. She benefits from any days off she can get.

Federer should rather play with Martina Navratilova.
Would make this mixed thing more serious.

And I could see Nadal being paired with Sharapova; their basic gritty formular is very similar to one another.

Venus or Serena could pair up with James Blake.

Although all these "dream" pairings would be fantastic to see...Martina did capture the mixed doubles title last year with Mahesh Bhupathi so that could be a possible pairing for the AO next year.
Regarding Nadal and Sharapova...this team would take forever to play....Nadal yanking his pants out of his butt, fixing his socks, adjusting his headband...jumping up and down:bounce: before serving while the "Diva" Sharapova walks to the back of the court, slowly struts to the service line, fixes those two loose strands of hair and places them behind her ears....bounces her balls :bounce: a few hundred times and ZZZZZZZZZZ! :lol:
