Kiri will only play doubles.Her partner will be Dinara Safina and they're going to play Cara Black and Liezel Huber.It'll be a difficult first round but remember, the only time kiri played doubles with dinara, they won against henin and clijsters.
I wonder if they will team up again after the tournament:shrug:

I'm not exactly a big fan of Dinara but I like this team, they are good friends. Shame about the draw though :(

Hopefully the Maria/Dinara team can win a few rounds just to keep Maria in match rhythm

Cara Black and Liezel Huber are the #1 ranked doubles team, not exactly a good first round.

Wow interesting pairing but a horror draw :sad: Good luck girls, do your best! :yeah:

I wonder why Maria didn't get a wildcard into the MD, they had 2 spare :scratch: Hope her knee isn't giving her jip :unsure:

They lost, it's not a surprise... I hope that Nikkie could see that and enjoying it a bit.Igor also lost against Mayer:worship:.

Ah, and Henin showed a lot of respect to the tournament that gave her a WC by deciding not to play there:rolleyes:

I knew from the beginning in another sense :)
I didn't know that they are the #1 ranked doubles team...

A bit of a waste this Sydney trip when she could have been practising with Ana Ivanovic in Melbourne :hearts:

I would love to see them together again :sad:

So how did Maria play in her doubles match?

Nikkiri

She played fairly good, It was Safina who let them down. Black and Huber targeted Maria a lot though she found it hard to keep up towards the end where as Safina would just belt the ball out every time she got a look in. Gorgeous volleys from Maria during the match as expected she really handles herself well at net.
