Very exciting draw! Many of the top team are making their first apperances since Wimby this week.

That match at the top features 4 players who hold 18 GS women's doubles titles between them. :bowdown:


I have no idea who will win this. I think at least 8 or 9 of those teams have a legitimate chance. :shrug:


Hantuyama are certainly one of those teams (^^) Dani is playing better now in singles which can only help her in dubs. When they have played the summer hardcourts they have always done well with each other. Like I said, impossible to tell who will win this which makes it such a promising tournament. :bounce:

Really interested to see how Pennetta and Raymond will do and they have a tough first round match. Vania King is a pretty tidy and compact volleyer and Niculescu is in very good doubles form but I think both of them play better when they are partnered with a big hitter.

Should be an exciting draw :D Certainly no outstanding favourites.
