Yes he is! :hearts: Thats not even a great pic of him either :p.
I was surprised that the US broadcasters called him an up comer as Trav just turned 29 and has been a solid doubles specialist for the past 6/7 years :lol: . He reached 2 ATP finals this year ( and 2 last year ), won 3 titles including St Petersburg last year, Indianapolis ( w/Del Potro in 07 ) and LA in 03 after he graduated from the University of Georgia :bounce:. He reached his current career ranking in June of #25 and he's currently at #34 :bounce:

But anyways,back to the WTA :lol: I think the thread starter was saying that Carly should maybe partner with Lisa Raymond in 2010 :drool:. I love that idea! :bounce:

NO!

Sorry, but Carly is way better than Raymond atm, I saw both of them play at the US Open. While Carly and Alexa did well in women's doubles and Carly won the mixed, Raymond did not hold serve once in her first round match with Shenay and was BY FAR the weak link.

I like Lisa, but she should not be playing anymore :sad:.

I know Carly just won a slam title and is playing very well but let's not overract here. Lisa is still one of the premier doubles players as she has been for most of the last TWO decades. She beat Carly 6-0 7-5 just a few months ago in doubles. Carly would do well to land a partnership with her, but I don't think that would happen.

Keep in mind, Lisa's regular partner with whom she had just reached 2 in the rankings with, has been out injured for a while. That was a huge disaster for her season and she's barely won matches since, so she's obviously low on confidence. I don't think her US Open match with a player who isn't known for her doubles expertise is a fair one to judge her on.


Easy to forget that in 2008 Lisa was on a horrible slump at the start of the year but ended up with 2 slam finals in a row. OF COURSE she should keep playing.

Regardless of who Carly ends up with, I think it's safe to say that having a Slam to her name will really open up the door for her as far as starting to pair up regularly with doubles players ranked among the top 20 or top 10. There have way too many instances where she's been paired with people who are weaker doubles players than her, so hopefully that changes soon.

It also wouldn't surprise me to see Carly go down the doubles specialist route soon. She's already admitted that her game is more suited for doubles and while she has some game in singles, I can't see her doing more than cracking the top 100. After winning a Grand Slam title, I don't really see how you can go back to playing challengers.

The only thing Lisa needs to do in 2010 is drop Matkowski and win Australian Open Mixed.

:worship: about Lisa. She has been playing with new partners just about every week since Roland Garros, playing with players for the first time is tough.
Congrats to Carly though for her win, and good luck to her in 2010.
