Right now Myskina is back on court in doubles :eek:

she w/out a doubt is gonna be extremly fatigued etc. Getting ready to lose the first set in dubs, if they try and put up a fight still she is gona be so tired.

Doubles is not nearly as Tiring as you may think. She'll be alright, and it's good warm up for tomorrow.

yeah, does not seem like a wise thing to do, play a long doubles match after a LONG three setter the day before a slam singles quarter.

Doubles isn't too tiring, even at the professional level. The rallies are typically short. Myskina is relatively fit, used to playing singles on consecutive days even to win other tournies. She needs to watch out about taking the doubles so seriously that she gets mentally drained by the end. Otherwise, it's okay.

As far as I recall the only minor danger of doubles is getting something strained. Otherwise, only Hingis complained repeatedly of being too tired afterwards to win her singles match the next day. Remember that fatigue was a factor for her regardless of whether she was playing doubles in the tournament. She was just always tired during those 3rd sets (except when playing Monica).

Yes... physically, it shouldn't be a problem at all (unless she injures herself). If Nastya wasn't playing doubles, she'd be on the courts practising anyway... hopefully she thinks of doubles as a more fun version of practice. It'll help hone her strokes. She'll be fine.

Wasn't Myskina injured earlier in the week or was the just my imagination...?

Nastya always playes doubles. Last year she played finals in one tourney in both categories and was fine.
