View Full Version : Vania King must be popular among the players

Just saw that Vania King is in her third-straight doubles final in three weeks but with her third different partner.

Vania's doubles record has been pretty good this year but I find it surprising that she has competed with 11 different partners in 2007.

So is she in demand among the players to play doubles or is it just that the majority of the players just don't have steady partners than they used to?

Anyway, Vania is in her fifth doubles final this year, this time with Taiwan's Chia-Jung Chuang. Best of luck to both of them.

I saw her in person at a Fed Cup tie and she seemed really likable. It might just be a scheduling issue. Vania's obviously reliable if she's been in that many finals. Hopefully she'll find a steady partner next season. :)

Yeah, she seems likable. Her interviews are bubbly but at the same time mature, and it really sounds like she knows what she's talking about without boasting or anything.

Yup Tammy from LA and Vania from Long Beach. Don't know how well they know each other although they played the Bangkok final last year.

Well, she surely is a nice girl it seems. But changing doubles partner a lot means that she just always has to look for a new one... and thats a bad thing.
