well given the way that masha played 3 weeks ago,all the draws will be easy for her as long as she plays fantastically good...no matter who's on her side,she's ready to beat anyone!

2/1 and hopefully 4-5/1.

Sharapova isn't playing doubles. Ivanovic is playing with Peng. Their first match is vs Dementieva/Larcher De Brito. V Williams/Wozniacki will play Hantuchova/Chakvetadze.

Peng is definitely a great test for first match of the year :yeah: Not too hard, but tough. That's what Venus need as first match :cool:

Next match vs Ivanovic or Dementieva? Well, if it's against Ivanovic, I'm not nervous, look at their last 3 matches and I don't know what Ana could have changed in her game to make a tougher match, against Dementieva it could be tricky.

It's all an exhibition, there you never know :p


Venus in doubles with Caroline? :eek: Definitely a very interesting couple. They could do very well together & they played 3 times this year, so they both know the game of the other one pretty good - nice combination.

Venus and Caro have their opener against Hantuchova/Chakevtadze? :haha: Maybe (!) Hantuchova gets the chance to beat Venus at least once in doubles at an exhibition :p :p - but think it won't happen.

Go Vee..!!! i really think that Caro n Vee r good friends..
ever since Vee cancelled that Match against her...

I think that its UNFAIR to partner 2 top ten in doubles.
Hantu/Chaky are a great team...

I want Caro to cause an upset in both her doubles and singles quarters
