YJ & CJ :bigcry:
I officially hate Nathalie and Dinara :fiery: They took out all my favorite teams en route to their title.
But really impressive from Nathalie. Not the best doubles player yet she's won three slam titles in two years :eek: and two US Opens back to back.
Dinara :hug:

YJ & CJ :bigcry:
Ai & Kata :sad: (I'm still affected:p)

Nat/Dinara :yeah:

Fun first set. Too bad Chan/Chuang got frustrated after that and didn't play as well in the second set. :p

Chan/Chuang :hug: could have been yours

Nathalie successfully defended her doubles grand slam title. I'm in a bigger shock than last year when I saw her win the 1st time :spit:

Could anyone upload it? Maybe I'll figure out how Nath wins in doubles..

She's a solid player all-round and is great at the net. :shrug:

Well,credit to Dechy/Safina,they played a solid match today.

Inexperience was Chan/Chuang's fatal weakness.They was tight throughout the match,very different from in the previous matches,and got frustrated so easily after that 1st set.A GS title has slipped away,now focus on the indoor and try your best at the YEC. :)

Still a very good tournament,and two slam finals in a season. :yeah: :hug:

She was the best player on the court today, IMO. Safina served and return well but it was Nat who finished off most of the points at the net and hit some really difficult volleys. ;)

I judge on one Wimbledon match where Kuzzie/Likho beat Daniela/Nathalie and I had the impression Nathalie was the worst one on court :shrug: (63,62 the result)
But it must have been one bad match and she's certainly improved since then..

Very impressive for Nathalie, especially given that she hasn't done anything in doubles this year until this :worship:

YJ and CJ :bigcry: Noooo! Such a good opportunity.

She won RG mixed with Andy Ram :p

I know it's not very fair. But I'm just curious, how many doubles matches have you seen?(involving Nathalie)
I saw her play million times singles, and I forgot to mention I saw the last year's USO final but I don't remember her playing outstandingly. I remember Safina/Srebotnik wasted a terribly big amount of chances..

Beny
Sep 9th, 2007, 08:32 PM
Plus I think she's won a Tier-I with Santangelo.. :)

(Sometimes it's not fair to compare mixed and women's doubles. Golovin won RG mixed but is rather hopeless in women's doubles)

silverwhite
Sep 9th, 2007, 08:45 PM
I saw last year's semis and final, this year's RG mixed final and this year's semis and final. She has really good touch at the net. :shrug:

Golovin had a great partner. ;)

Ok, I believe you ;)
I think I saw some good touch from Nathalie at net this year in some singles match

Anyway, Gasquet :lol:<<<A.Ram in dubz

Maybe < but definitely not <<<. Even with his limited doubles schedule, he has reached the QFs (wasted MPs to reach the semis) of IW and the final of MC. And Benneteau/Gasquet beat Erlich/Ram when they met this year. ;)

Sep 9th, 2007, 09:02 PM
Ah Nathalie, a smooth transition into being a top doubles player? Pick a regular partner soon! :)

I wonder if Dinara will play mixed doubles with Marat next year just so they can carry on family tradition.......
