Navratilova/Raymond vs. Kuznetsova/Likhovtseva


Is this gonna be the first time they're facing each other after their split?

Should think so, this is the first time Martina and Lisa have got their doubles partnership going properly this year, although they have gone to three sets a bit too often. Should be an interesting match.

A possible Olympic final in Athens. After the match we know whether Lisa and Martina are able to win Gold or not... :)

Should be an interesting match. I wish BOTH womens semis were televised..i would have even liked to see the mens semis with the BRYAN bothers and the zimb. team...hell..even put the boys and girls finals on the tennis channel..but allas we get as little as possible :sad: !!

Raymond/Navratilova have been stuggelling ... I'm going for Kuznetzova/Likhovtceva. Both pairing have been playing A LOT this year!

Looks like Likhotseva is the odd man out. :devil:

yeah, it's the first time after they split, but not the first time ever. Sveta/ASV beat Martina/Serena (I think in Tokyo) couple of years ago... after that match Martina offered Svetlana to play 2003 season together

Not really, she's a very good dubs player (w/Cara Black)

She did volley well against Serena...when she approached. But that wasn't where I was going with the "odd man out" thing. A crass joke that I should take back since Monica wouldn't be so tasteless.

Lena is actually a better doubles players than Sveta IMO

Well in that case, isn't Martina the odd "man" out ;)

I'm sure ESPN is having an orgasm with Roddick and Spadea playing at night. When Spadea beats Roddick in 2 quick sets, I wonder if they'll show the doubles? :haha: God, I crack myself up thinking that ESPN really cares what the viewers want to see!

if that happens, they will show rerun of Roddick's win over Carlos or even rerun of Roddick's win over Ferrero from last US Open

I've never seen Sveta/Lena play. ESPN showed Safin vs. Agassi for the third time instead of a live AO final.

Have they ever played together? Don`t know how strong they are... And, I think whether Arantxa participates or not is not decided yet...

I think the russian pair will win, unless Martina and Lisa have been playing alot better this tournament(which i'm not sure if they have or havent)

Elena is a good dubs player, she got quite a few titles with Cara Black, although she has had slightly more success with Sveta already. Thus far as a young team they have not lost before a Final of any tournament have entered together. (I think Elena also reached the Tokoyo final with Magdalena) I think they have a ligit chance of beating Lisa and Martina and winning the entire thing. Provided the Chinese duo doesn't win! ;)

Sveta/Lena are in the finals, but the other semi hasn't been played yet.
