Because it's Olympic year and players from the same country want to play together to get some preparation for Athens.

I think it's a good change. Black/Elena have never won a Doubles slam, have they? seems odd for a really good team like that to have done so poorly in slams.

Can't see Elena rushing back to Cara after the Olympics!?! She and Svetlana are a great team.

Cara/Lena have had bad results last year,they won only one tournament (Hobart Tier 5)so they have well done to slip!
Sveta/Lena is a better team as well as Stubbs/Black than Cara/lena! :)

I thought they split up because they had poor results last year. Cara/Renaee is a really hot/cold team. They either end up winning the title or going out in the first round lol :D

can't explain how happy I'm.... finally Elena could get my full support.

but to answer this question, Olympics was the primary reason. They are still good friends (to my knowledge)
