Are their rankings high enough to get in. I heard you have to be below around 130 (with sum of best ranking for each player, either doubles or singles) to make the cut... :confused:

I've updated first post with all this, by the way, thanks.

Yes but the sum of their best ranking (singles or doubles) will be low enough? I don't know...

Michaella Krajicek & Agnieszka Radwanska ;)

Just Do It
Jan 4th, 2008, 04:07 PM
It would be good for Dokic to play with someone.

Anuraagbhadana
Jan 4th, 2008, 04:14 PM
I read in the newspaper the other day that molik and mirza will team up at the oz since meg and mara are out of action.
Their combined ranking should be high enough to get them a top 8 seed IMO.

*Jean*
Jan 4th, 2008, 04:15 PM
Sania Mirza and ??? now that Meg Shaughnessy is out

I'm not sure at all of that :lol:

Kanepi/Arvidsson ? :confused: Weird

Dementieva/Pennetta maybe? They played as a team in GS last years...

ChrisCologne
Jan 4th, 2008, 04:20 PM
Given the fact that the Olympics are about to change a number of teams, my tip is that Schiavone and Pennetta team up for Italy the whole year.

Jan 4th, 2008, 04:29 PM
Na Li once said She would play doubles with Szavay sometime.

Willam

iheartjelenaj
Jan 4th, 2008, 06:58 PM
does tati play doubles?

and if jj wants a chance at winning a gs, she shouldn't play doubles. it'd be great to see her partner up but with this injury she should rest up and really just concentrate on singles.

Jan 4th, 2008, 08:26 PM
Sania Mirza is a very good doubles player and Molic is a big server, so they have a very decent chance in the ao.

Does anyone know if the Williams Sisters will be seeded?

Drake1980
Jan 5th, 2008, 10:47 PM
Castano/Spears maybe

I think petrova and kuznetsova.

and safina dechy?

Ryan
Jan 5th, 2008, 11:09 PM
Safina and Szavay would be stupid not to play together after their success in GC.

They should be in the 4 top seeds, with Black Huber (seed 1, combined ranking of 2), Sugiyama Srebotnik (2 combined ranking of 9 or 10) and Chan Chuang (either 3 or 4, same combined ranking as Serena and Venus of 15). I don't think some other duo can have a lower combined ranking... ;)

Are you sure?:confused:
I think single rankings can only be used to enter the double event,
but not to be seeded!!!:wavey:

I believe the rule is that you can use your singles rankings to enter the doubles but only doubles rankings can be used to seed.

Ok, I was not aware of that... so no way they are seeded. Thanks for the info! :wavey:

Same for Raymond-Davenport if they play together....no way they are seeded. Some seeds will have bad surprises...

I hope Li and Jankovic, my dream team. But Jankovic shouldn't over do it, doubles isn't necessary.

Also Molik and Mirza should join up since Santangelo and Shaughnessy are now out, I believe they've had success in the past.

I assume Casey Dellacqua and Jess Moore will play doubles together aswell.

stefi62
Jan 5th, 2008, 11:53 PM
Don't you think Bammer and Paszek would team together again? They did it several times last year...

Raymond & Schiavone are playing together in Sydney, and made the final in Zurich together last year in their only tournament, so perhaps they'll team up for the Open.

AlexBarrington
Jan 6th, 2008, 11:51 AM
Pennetta/Schiavone or Pennetta/Dementieva

Jan 6th, 2008, 12:20 PM
Krajicek is still injured so...

justine schnyder
Jan 6th, 2008, 02:49 PM
I think Schnyder and Gagliardi Will play together, Peer abd Azarenka too

jelena_jankovic
Jan 6th, 2008, 03:29 PM
Vladimira Uhlirova and Laura Granville probably

They are playing for sure:wavey:

Vladka told me some weeks ago...
