Is there a chance? I mean she has 80 career doubles titles (Throw In: It's late; 2:00 AM and I first wrote points instead of titles. That would push her right into the record books? :rolleyes: ) She is of such cool character, couldn't they do it because of that? But seriously, 80 is a lot; no? Or not enough?

Well....4 singles titles, 80 doubles, 18 doubles grand slams, and 2 Mixes Doubles is pretty convincing....I'd say yes....

She was one of the best doubles player ever, and a pretty decent singles player too (career high #5, French Open finalist). I think that'll be enough.

Jun 14th, 2003, 07:19 AM
I think she should, for sure. :)

Jun 14th, 2003, 07:26 AM

Natasha still has an active doubles ranking so i'm still wishing and hoping she might still play a couple of events this year...

Eastbourne? :sad: :cool:

she was top 30 pretty much all year because the first time she won a match last year (pretty much) was when they won madrid....now she'll start falling especially when the summer pts come off
