Last year at about this time Lena played for the first time the doubles with Flavia Pennetta. They def. Jidkova/Petrova 76 in the third and went on winning matches..they won the LA doubles trophy and they were unstoppable at US open till the final against Raymond/Stosur. I was really happy then cos` it seemed Lena had found a very good doubles partner for her..
But since the beginning of 2006 they haven`t achieved anything remarkable except the Berlin final...and it`s August now..
Do you think it`s time to split? Is there someone Lena or Flavia would do better with?
I like Flavia too, but now they are not as good as last year as doubles pair.

I would like Lena to team up with Zvonareva..or Janette Husarova(it would be great) But Janette and Lena said they would never play together again..
..and I don`t see anyone else..
So Lena and Flavia, go on playing together....or?

btw.They get on well together so I don`t think they`re gonna split..they are good friends.. :bounce:

i was thinking the same thing actually, but i think lena/flav will stay together, they were a bit unlucky at Wimbledon cause the match they lost was right after lena lost the singles in straights and they were hardly in great mood, i thik they will have a good run at the USO again tho

Yeah, it's true that Dementinetta have struggled of late. Sometimes it's tough draws, but also they've had some disappointing losses.


Personally, I'd like to see Elena pair with Nicole Vaidisova, who is currently playing with embarassment-to-Canada Maureen Drake. Elena and Nicole have played together before and had some success.

Another option I like would be the popular Maria Kirilenko, whose game might complement Elena's a bit better.

thats would be a dream partnership :hearts: , they would actually be really good together, but unfortunatley its never ever gonna happen, since i dnt think they like each other after several incidents :lol: and Vee always says she only plays with Serena in womens dubs but we can live in hope :D
the wta needs to watch out for the LenaVee partnership ;)

Do you know why they said they'd never play together again ?! What the hell happened between them ?! :confused:
They definitely were a great team !! Reached the US Open and won the Porsche Race in the end of 2002.

Now I'm curious to know what made they split up !!!!!!
Please, someone answer me !!

Oh, and I like Lena and Flavia playing doubles together !! :hearts: :drool:
Though they've done nothing special lately :help: :sad: :(

Why do Lena and Husarova never want to play together again?

IMO, Lena and Flavia are a great match.
Also, Lena and Nastya would be a good team I guess.

didnt they have a fight at the start of 03 because Lena wanted to cut back on her dubz to concentrate on singles and Jeannete wasnt very happy or something like that :shrug:

Jelena Jankovic play well in doubles this season, but always change her partners...

I want to watch J-Elena next 5 years!!!

dementieva/safina.

Lena/safina was really good in the fed cup final.
I also think that Venus/Lena can be good, Lena can teach Venus how to hit a forehand and Venus can help her with her serve, backhand and volleys.

Likhovtseva / Dementieva would be great

yea. i would cry out of sadness if that happened.

u know... jankovic is improving in doubles, and while she hasn't had very good runs in tournaments, she has upsetted some players like ELENA and PENNETTA in ACURA CLASSIC. so... u know... the j-elena team is possible at any moment.

-----------

i'd also like dementieva and vee but that would never happen, and that pairing would be kind of weird. but otherwise, on a realistic level, I would like kirilenko, zvonareva, hantuchova (if ai retires soon), or petrova. i think those would go decent together.

Lena and Pennetta are cool as a team.

Her and Husarova were a pretty sweet team although they did have a bit of a fallout. As someone mentioned, Lena wanted to concentrate on singles - however paired up with Krasnoroutskaya just two months later. Hmm.

Lina and Lena were, in my eyes, immense, that win over the Sisters at Wimbledon. :worship: Should Lina return, as expected, at the start of 2007, they would be an ideal partnership.

I'd like to see Lena playing with Nastya!!

I think they tried in 2004 in e few tournaments in order to practice for the olympics. They weren't very successful as far as I remember....

they were a good pair but they played like 3 tournies and were just very unlucky particularly at the olympics were they could have maybe won the medal but lost a really really close match to the japaneese they were good tho

I like Lena and Flavia (but is it Pennetieva or Dementietta?)

I think Lena and Nastya would be fun, but not overly successful.

IF she decides to come out of retirement, Lena D./Anna K. would be an interesting combo. Anna's pretty good a dbls.

Haha both! :lol:

Why does Lena need a new partner? I mean Flavia Pennetta is the perfect one to partner her...she is fast, good at the net and good at the back... You'll see...they are going to win LA again :cool:
