FYI, Irina Selyutina is from Kazakhstan (used to be part of Soveit Union)...BTW, you are not Wagga Wagga, are you?:confused:

She lives in the capital, Alma-Aty...She is 5'10...She used to be top dbl player in junior with cara Black and her best junior singles rank was 7th...She won 2 dbls junior in Grand Slams...She is quite good double player, I reckon...She has won 3 WTA double titles: 1999 in Warsaw, Poland...with catalina Cristea of Romania if I am not mistaken...

In 2002 she won dbls in Porto with Cara Black and Canberra with de Villiers...Her current WTA dbl ranking is 73...higher than Angie...Angie is 82...Her highest dbl ranking was 31...She seems more talented in doubles than singles...Good luck, Irina!:D :cool: :) :wavey: :bounce:

**AND** she dates Cara's brother Wayne! Plus she is a very sweet young woman (I met her at Key Biscayne last year) -- she looks very frail, but she can hit quite hard.

So, just to echo your sentiment, lokamaya -- gooo Irina! :)

Monica:rolleyes: It's called resting up your sore ankle. Remember what happened in 2002, and '01, and '00, and '99, and '98....:mad:

Still, she only played doubles once last year and it was here so I don't think this will be a new trend. Unless Nainkin decides it is good for her.

Seles has probably been asked to play doubles by the tournament organisers as there is not many 'top' stars here - so by attracting the top players to play, it means there is more star-power on teh court. Plus her contract is with Yonex and this is their big tournament...

Why isn't Mary playing with Rennae .............. ok, Mary wasn't going to play tokyo, last minute decision....... Bovina asked Rennae in Sydney and I guess Rennae isn't one for going back on her word.

Oh okay, Stubbsy...

so is Mary/Rennae going to be permanent this year?

and yes, if that's the case why wouldn't Mary play with Paola :mad:

Wow! Angie/Selyutina vs Davenport/Raymond. It seems that no chance for Angie/Selyutina to beat their opponent, but at least you girls can take a lesson from the senior players. But never say to die until the game is over. Possibility always comes unpredictably. Good Luck.
