Congratulations Sugichova!! :bounce: Revenge from the US Open 2005 match!

So glad Sugiyama won one of her semifinals :lol: Hope Sugichova can win the title tomorrow - it'd be their second as a team.

Sad, match was given to them with a double fault (Yan/Zheng's only double fault, too). Sugichova served at 84%.

I really really dont know about this partnership. I really feel there is absolutely no way Daniela should not have a slam in womens doubles at this time.
They just are not very good. They have played more than enough yet only have a Teir III title to show for it.
It would be nice to win this title but I dont think its in their best interest that Sugiyama and Daniela are a team when it comes to the slams.

They started galfway through the year last year and were only a couple points from qualifying for the YEC...they have been MPs away from winning big titles it's just closing them out that's the trouble...they're a very good team.

Dani/Ai are really playing well. I think they can win for Indian Wells or Miami

Just not good enough. It seems to be a very comfortable partnership because both focus on singles more but when you are seeded slam after slam and seem just not to be able to find a way to make a slam semis or finals once, then there could be an issue.

I kind of feel simililarly to Wannaknowitall, but to a lesser extent. I mean, they've lost to some pretty mediocre teams; what jumps to mind the most in my mind is at the Australian Open, in the 3rd Round, 6-1 6-1 to Dulko/Kirilenko. But at the same time, they've pulled off huge wins, like Raymond/Stosur in straight sets (breaking their winning streak at Zurich). So I really don't know right now. I think we'll be able to judge from their upcoming results not only here, but in Indian Wells and Miami to see if their team will come up with results.
