Just a random thought but i think an amazing doubles team would be:

Mauresmo & Henin

I know it will never happen as they concentrate on their singles.

But think about it both have amazing volleys, and power from the baseline and their serves are good. Plus they get on well.

I know doubles is a completely different game but I think they would dominate.

Can you think of any other good pairs?

I think Momo/Juju won't be a good team as doubles players don't use to be GREAT singles players because they concentrate their mind in just doubles (the great example of Cara or Liezel).

I think a great pair would be Suarez/Black

Henin & Schnyder :devil: :drool:

I don't know why, but Ivanovic/Schnyder comes to my mind :confused:

Oh and last... Ivanovic/Jankovic :angel:

Henpova

I think Henin and Sharapova would be great. I don't think momo and juju would be great since they play a very similar game style. I also would love juju and fed for mixed. Or even Davenport and Henin. Martina and Fed. I think all of these would be great.

Womens:
Maria Sharapova and Maria Kirilenko (Best friends)
Justine Henin and Serena Williams (oh the drama! :devil: )

Mens:
Bjorn Borg and Roger Federer (They would rule wimbledon AND French Open)
John McEnroe and Marat Safin (two hotheads)
Goran Ivanisevic and Andy Roddick (Monster servers)
Jimmy Connors and Rafa Nadal (grit players united)
Stefan Edberg and Pat Rafter (Don't try to play them at the net)

Mixed:
Maria Sharapova and Novak Dokovic (Because they're friendly)
Justine Henin and Pierre-Yves Hardenne (for fond marriage memories)
Serena Williams and John McEnroe (Can you imagine the arguments between these two?)
Martina Hingis and Roger Federer (Swiss tennis!)

Henin and Serena!!!

Henin and Clijsters

Sharapova and Clijsters

Serena and Mauresmo

Those are really bad mixtures. You're just choosing top players and mixing them. Henin is good in singles, but she definitely has little experience when it comes to doubles. I don't have anything against her, but Hennin and Clijsters used to play occasionally and garnered little success. So that's basically what I mean.

Venus Williams & Brenda Schultz-McCarthy - it's not first time I say it, I think their games would combinate fantastic in doubles. Sure, Venus plays now with Serena, but I would like it see Venus playing with Brenda once on a GS (After Olympics :p).

Venus could in this team do the part from the baseline & Brenda on the net.

Yeah I think people are jsut thinking that two good singles players would make a good doubles team, which I would have to disagree with. Henin, for all of her talent and drive, has shown little commitment to doubles and IMO would not be that great a player unless she played a full schedule for a few years. The tactics and mentality of doubles is entirely different from singles. That being said...

I think Hingis and Hantuchova would be a top notch team if they played a full schedule. I know they played a few times already and performed decently, but if both trained together and played more they would be in the top 5 and winning slams. They've proven themselves as great doubles players and their games definitely compliment each other. Neither have a real weakness in doubles - Hingis' weak serve is nullified, and Daniela's subpar movement isnt as big a factor. Dani should pull Martina out of retirement and dominate doubles in 2008. ;)

I've already had my 2 dream-teams playing (Hingis/Hantuchova and Ivanovic/Hantuchova).. I would only love Ivanovic/Hantuchova to continue playing doubles ;) also, I wish Hingis would not retire and there could be triples, so that all 3 of them could play on one side of the net http://imgsrv2.tennisuniverse.com/wtaworld/images/smilies/biggrin.gif

I wouldn't say that they didn't play well together, I'd say that their opponents were really good ;)

By the way, here are the best combinations possible...

Maria - Justine (The "little man, big man" combination)
Serena - Amelie (This team could be unbeatable, especially on grass... a power player and a serve-and-volleyer = :drool:)
Ana - Jelena (The "Serbian Terrors" :lol: )

I think Hingis and Clijsters would be invincible.

Also you just cant throw together two good singles players and expect them to be good. Any combo with Sharapova for instance has to be thought about because she's not good at doubles.

Hingis/Sharapova :D : finesse and power/mental toughness :D
Sharapova/Cibulkova : my 2 biggest faves :p
Ivanovic/Hantuchova: They did quite well in Wimbledon (they fought well against one of the best teams) and I think they should play more often :p
Zvonareva/Dementieva : both are 2 pretty good doubles players:p

Mixed doubles:
Sharapova/Djokovic :hearts:
Sharapova/Safin
Sharapova/Nadal
Stakhovsty/Cibulkova :awww: (they are dating :p)

What tournament did Davenport and Hingis play in?


They played in Stanford/San Diego in 1997 I think, winning the event. They played one other tourney together but withdrew after winning one match I think, not sure where/when.
