Zimbabwe lost in Hopman Cup play-off to that f*cker Wessels, and sexy Michaella... But anyway, she has played doubles at some stage with: Ellis Ferreira, Sandon Stolle, Kevin Ullyett, Mark Knowles, Galbraith, Lan Bale, Robbie Koenig, and of course both her brothers.

Her hobbies include music, snow boarding and surfing. She is coached part-time by David Taylor.

I am a big fan although I wonder what she is going to do about her singles career. Has she decided to give up singles and just concentrate on being a doubles specialist? If she is I'm glad she captured her singles championship in Waikoloa.

Cara is in the qualifying draw of Linz. Here is her road to qualifying, although it might take a back seat because she is in the semifinals of Zurich doubles.

MONTRÉAL, Canada - Playing in the penultimate event before her retirement from the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour, Martina Navratilova showed she can still hang with the game's current stars, capturing the Rogers Cup presented by National Bank doubles title Monday morning partnering Nadia Petrova. The unseeded duo ousted No.2 seeds Cara Black and Anna-Lena Groenefeld, 61 62, in Monday's final.

Navratilova, who turns 50 next month, claimed her 177th Tour doubles title. Five of those titles have come here at the Rogers Cup, including in 2005 with Groenefeld. She will go for No.178 next week at the US Open, which will be the last tournament of Navratilova's legendary 31-year-career.

"Winning at The Open would be fantastic," Navratilova said. "Doing it in my country. We'll have the crowd's support and I have a great partner for doubles, also mixed doubles, with Bob Bryan."

Petrova earned her 12th Tour doubles title. This one is particularly special for the 24-year-old, who has not won a singles match since May and has been winless in Tour doubles events since 2004.

"It's very exciting," Petrova said. "I must say, I've never felt more comfortable on the court. The understanding is there, there's always bright atmosphere and sharing of ideas. We share our opinions and then we try to find a solution that can make us better. That's what I think kept us going this week, because we were always trying to find ways as to how can we improve."

"I wish I had Nadia a couple years ago as a partner," Navratilova added. "I've been playing good ball, but it's easier when you have a great partner that supports you. We mesh well together with her power and my touch; it's a really good combination. So that's what makes it a lot of fun."

Navratilova and Petrova played impressively throughout the week, their run highlighted by a three set quarterfinal win over top seeds and two-time 2006 Grand Slam champions Zheng Jie and Yan Zi.

In 11 Rogers Cup appearances, Navratilova has put together an amazing 38-5 doubles record. She won titles in 1982 (with Candy Reynolds), 1985 (with Gigi Fernandez), 2003 (with Svetlana Kuznetsova) and last year (with Groenefeld).

"It's just nice to leave on an winning note," Navratilova said. "It's sort of a closed chapter. Now there's just one more to write and then it will be done. It's been great to be able to defend the title and do it in great style. Nadia played great Saturday, she played great today and it's fun to do it as a team."

Black and Groenefeld, who were also playing together for the first time, had an impressive week themselves, their best victory coming in the semifinals with a 62 62 demolition of No.4 seeds Safina and Katarina Srebotnik. Black owns 26 Tour doubles titles; Groenefeld has won five.

Black and Huber Victorious in Doubles Final
The top-seed team of Cara Black of Zimbabwe and American Liezel Huber captured the 2007 Acura Classic doubles
championship as they defeated the unseeded team of Victoria Azarenka of Belarus and Russia’s Anna Chakvetadze, 7-5, 6-4.
The victory marked the fourth career Acura Classic doubles title for Black, who is the number one doubles player in the world
She won her first Acura Classic doubles title in 2001 with Russian Elena Likhovtseva.
Black also teamed with Rennae Stubbs of Australia to win the doubles titles in 2004 and 2006.
This was the sixth title that Black and Huber won together in 2007.
They played their first tour event together in Tokyo in 2001. Huber has now won 20 career tour doubles titles.
A native of South Africa, Huber recently became an American citizen.
Earlier this year, Black and Huber won the doubles titles at the Australian Open and Wimbledon.
They were also semifinalists at this year’s French Open. Chakvetadze and Azarenka reached the second round at
Wimbledon this year. The victory over Azarenka and Chakvetadze took one hour and 28 minutes to complete.



And thanks to that victory, Cara remains more than ever World Number one and Liezel becomes World number two! :worship:

They got married last december :wavey:

She is no longer playing singles probably because it is hard to go far in doubles in a tournament and have to play qualies in the next tournament in the same time. But she'll probably get a WC for the Olympics in singles. :D She'll probably won't play them in doubles cos there's noone else in Zimbabwe! :sad:

They are very popular there. I remember that i read an interview of Wayne Black and he said that the Black family is like a here in Zimbabwe, they have the reason to be a hero in a country where sports are not even playing with the exception of Black family who had a tennis court in their house, there is where the story began.

There will be lots of news on the girls, pics, vids... but also a Q&A section. The girls promised they'd answer quickly to the questions asked. :hearts:
The girls have been and will be very active on the site, Liezel starting with blogging during the whole USO. Cara promised she'd do it later... ;)

They won quite easily 6-1 / 6-1 with no break point against them; Seems to be a very solid start! :bounce:
In mixed, Cara plays with Paul Hanley! They are seed one! I'm so happy, Hanley is not only a great doubles player, but also a very funny guy! They'll have fun together I bet! I think Cara hesitated to play with Matkowski again after the USO incident... :tape:

Well, the rankings, no problem. They're like 1200 points ahead of the third, Kata. Should be safe till Miami at least. :D

For the race, well, no worry. I doubt the Bondarenkos will fight hard to go to the Masters, same with Azarenka-Peer. Only Zheng and Yan and Ruano/Medina who are ahead of them are threats right now.

Hey guys,

A little off topic, and yet not really: on WtaWorld, they're considering creating a doubles forum; Actually, they're talking about it, and they need to have an idea of how many people would be interested and would participate there. As Cara is almost exclusively a doubles player, I thought some of you might be interested in supporting the project. Just go to that thread http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.p...1#post12641411 and say if you are for such a forum and how you would participate if it existed.
Thanks guys!

I don't know, I did not even remember she had it. Sometimes she has some strappings, don't really know why. Maybe because like she says she is getting old! :tape: :lol: :kiss:

Ok. It looks like a band aid as if she had fallen and hurt herself. But it also could be a medical band aid for pain relief. As you run the website, do you know if she has had some knee problems?

I don't know but I can ask her in Miami... Only problem I know she has had was with her back and with her leg during the Masters in 2006. But she had another band aid at the beginning of the year at the leg. My guess would be pain relief, I don't remember her falling either at AO 2007 or at GDF, where I attended all matches. I'll ask and tell you.

When did Cara and Liezel begin to wear matching outfits?

It started in Miami 2007. They have a team contract now with their sponsor K-Swiss, so I guess they have to wear the same outfit. Only the shoes are different.
