This just came out of nowhere form Llodra, i think Serena wants the boxed set in slams as Llodra only said the next two slams and very specific. Not shocked that it's a Frenchman she is pairing up with as she has spent a lot of time in France lately. Hope this is true, and hope she wins both of them. She has won 2 with Mirnyi, reached 3 finals with him, maybe he is the best fit for Serena.

Why wouldn't Serena play with one of the Bryan twins instead?

Maybe because of chemistry. When she played with one of them in the French Open it was a mess.

Llodra? He has not been doing well in doubles lately. Let alone the fact that he is a fucking choker.

I also highly doubt she would play all 3 events at both those slams. Particularly the French. So no doubles with Venus? Only the last 2 slams, where Venus would then not be able to complete her Mixed slam?

This just sounds stupid to me. You love and enjoy doubles so much that you want to tournament whore in Cincy and Beijing, but choose Mixed for Aussie and RG. This clearly shows to me that they were trying to make a huge end of season surge to finally get the YEC title. Serena just wants all not yet won on her resume to be won.

Bob is a Deuce side player, same with Serena. Doesn't really work out. Mike is with Lisa again.

I am pretty sure Mirnyi is a Deuce side player like Bob, but that clearly worked out for him and Serena.

Playing Mixed is not really a lot a three-setter with match tie-breaks, isn't a lot of tennis. It's not set on stone it's just up for discussion.

It's not about Deuce or Ad. It's about how the two plays together, they need to have an understanding on how they will play without the other saying anything.
