Whose to say Hlavackova and Hradecka aren't doubles specialists? Plus, that is a slightly skewed stat since practically all those years had either Huber or Stubbs in final:lol:

They are in top 100 singles :p

Basically doubles specialists to me are those who just focus on Diubles.

It is a tough word to define. Stubbs, Huber are doubles specialists because it was all they were really good at. While doubles specialists are also Raymond, Peschke, Srebotnik, Black too because they retired from singles to focus on doubles. HOWEVER, all 4 of the last mentioned ladies' singles careers were better than Hlavackova, Hradecka's IMO.

would be interesting because i think that they are very similar teams, the consistent ones Hlavackova and Kirilenko, the erratic big servers Petrova and Hradecka.
