Wil it happen? Can the team supreme ever be broken up?

I think we might see them playing mixed more often, but I doubt they'll play women's doubles with other partners.

I don't see it happening. They play really well together and make a fabulous team. I don't see them changing what has worked so well for them. At least when they are playing doubles, both can walk away winners instead of like singles where one has to be the runner - up.

Martina Navratilova once approached Serena, at a tournament that Venus did not play in, and asked Serena if she would play doubles with her.

Serena responded: "I ONLY play doubles with Venus."

I am sure Martina was disapointed because Serena would definitely made an impact on her team.

I would love to see Martina and Serena playing what a team!:eek:

I think Serena would do it if Venus is hurt and out for a couple of grand slams! Other than that I don't think so.

NO the team will NEVER split. If it aint broke why fix it?
As for the matter of mixed doubles, the williams said that it would be too much to play singles, doubles and mixed.
So implied they would not be playing mixed in the near future at wimbledon press comference.

Didn't Serena win Wimbledon mixed a few years ago or is that just my imagination ?

I doubt we'll see them playing with other women in the future - there is always going to be that element of competition. Part of Williams sisters' games is their on court aura, something which I don't imagine either of them want to give any other players a look in on.

SERENA has 2 mixed doubled grand slams.
VENUS has 2 mixed doubled grand slams.
think they were all in 1999!

i think Serena won a Slam with Max Mirnyi a couple of years ago.

Yes, Serena has played with Mariaan in World TeamTennis and Venus with Nana Miyagi.

Serena was considering playing with Alexandra Stevenson at the 2000 Australian Open but decided against it.

But I would have loved to have seen Serena play with Martina! What a team!

Venus Williams played in an exhibition match with Amelie Mauresmo at the 2002 Open Gaz de France because Dokic withdrew from the final due to injury. They teamed up against Mansour Bahrami and Yannich Noah.

Here's a picture

sorry for the picture quality, but i had to make the picture a small enough size to be uploaded. Does anyone else have more pics of Venus, Amelie, Yannick and Mansour?
