Nov 13th, 2002, 01:07 AM
Any word on new doubles pairings for next year? I read somewhere here that Stubbs was supposed to finalize plans this past week. I am very curious as to planned pairings.

Does anyone know who kim's partner will be???

Nov 16th, 2002, 06:21 PM
Im hoping that Kim and Daniela might play some more doubles together. :)

Nov 16th, 2002, 06:36 PM
and the best double team 2002:
Vivi Ruano & Paola Suarez!!!

Will Anna and Martina be playing doubles
in AO 2003? or are they splitting up?
since Hantuchova is looking for a parter too,
hey, why not just pair with Anna K,
that way, u get more attention dont u..

Hmm..I really wish we could've seen more Arantxa/Daniela and Arantxa/Sveta Kuznetsova pairings...:( but maybe they will team up 2 make a Daniela/ Sveta pair! :-D

Nov 16th, 2002, 09:54 PM
The only pairs I know for sure is Davenport/Raymond and Morariu/Stubbs.

Hantuchova / Shaughnessy...Meghann spoke about teaming with Hantuchiva next year...I wish she finds someone else...but well would be a successful team I mean...

Nov 17th, 2002, 12:58 AM
Navratilova/Tulyaganova is a definate.

will lindsay be fully commited to the doubles - plus we can expect another injury blow ( happened three years in the row now)

Nov 18th, 2002, 12:20 AM
Chanda Rubin/Martina Hingis would make a great doubles pair

Nov 18th, 2002, 05:24 AM
Widjaja/Prakusya :bounce:

Hingis/Hantuchova :hearts:

I thought this is about definite teams not dream teams ?!

I think Hantuchova/Shaughnessy is interesting. They play most of their events together, so not bad. I expected Clijsters to team with Daniela or Meghann though. I think once again Kim wonīt concentrate too much on doubles with Jelena teaming Nadeshda Petrova and noone of her latest partners anywhere around.

I think itīs clear now that Husarova/Dementiewa will continue with that choice of Daniela H.

Regarding Lindsay, I think that itīs a good idea. Due to the following reasons: If Lisa is so much more committed to doubles compared to Lindsay, sheīll choose a 2nd choice partner or several of those for the minor events to hold her status as a top five player in the world, but as far as the majors are concerned her title chances are better by far if having a top hardhitting partner that doubles specialists f.e. arenīt too much confronted with. As it was often said in the past concerning the surprising gold medal of Becker/Stich 1992, the key is the "surprise". If those around in the doubles circuit meet the Williams whom they donīt meet in doubles too often, their weapons against other doubles teams becomes a weakness because they cannot match the power and the strength of singles champion. So, if they only choose to play the 4 GS and 4-5 of the bigger events together, the team alone will make it to LA and Lisa for sure remains on her top level in the rankings.

I'd like to see that Anna K/Natasha Z team back again! They were awsome!

Nov 18th, 2002, 05:02 PM
Anna K. /Martina I think. But Anna/Serena would be AWESOME!!!!:hearts: Daniela should team up with Martina H. maybe. :confused: but who really knows?

Nov 18th, 2002, 06:33 PM
I'd love to see Navrat and Zvereva play againn cos they won a title and could be really erxciting. They're such great doubles players!!!!
