That was going to be my suggestion although I might add Sharapova/Bartoli. :oh:

Others;
Sharapova/Schnyder (might be wrong but didn't they play together in Hong Kong?)
Poutchek/Tanasugarn
Huber/Vesnina

Raymond/Goerges looks rather odd in hindsight! Let's face it, that really wasn't going to work out.

Pratt/Sharapova

Williams/Wozniacki

Huber/Vesnina

Wow :spit:

+ Huber/Petrova, especially odd when Petrova hit Huber :oh:

For me it was interesting to see that Tammy and Maria were doubles partners early before Maria broke out. Just because Maria is so tall and Tammy quite short. Although I'm not sure how tall Maria was at 16.

2008 Doha.

Odd pairings that spring to mind are Serena/Navratilova and Serena/Stevenson in 2002 Tokyo and Leipzig. Only two times she played without Venus in pro matches.

True. It looked as if Navratilova and Sánchez-Vicario were hoping Sveta to be a true dominant player. Aw, Sveta, such an underachiever.

I always thought Suárez/Tulyaganova was quite an unusual pairing.

I was thinking the same thing. The only title Stevenson ever won was with Serena. :lol: That was actually the week after Serena played with Nav I think. :scratch: Funny that Serena and Martina didn't work, but her and Stevenson was a much more effective pairing. I think Martina wasn't completely comfortable with Serena (especially after all the things she has said about Serena and her entire family :o) and obviously Alexandra and Serena have known each other since they were in elementary school. :)

Other random pairings are Hingis with Lucic, Seles, and Capriati.

None are what to be thought of as good doubles players, but you can see that Martina was aiming for hard ground strokes to complement her great net abilities.
