Welcome to Rome, Italy! Roland Garros is coming closer and things are heating up! The top seeds are American veterans Liezel Huber and Lisa Raymond, have undoubtedly been the strongest, most consistent doubles team this year but a few recent losses mean that they will need to be on their guards. Other strong seeds in the top half include Russians Maria Kirilenko and Nadia Petrova, a weird combo in 6th seeds Julia Goerges and Vania King. Another unseeded team to watch is the Argentine tandem of Gisela Dulko and Paola Suarez who have formed this year and steadily made their way up the rankings. Finally, the second seeds, Czech Květa Peschke and Slovene Katarina Srebotnik, have had some lackluster results this year but their past history will make them a tough team to beat. Other unseeded teams to watch out for are Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Sania Mirza and Flavia Pennetta and Francesca Schiavone. Clearly the depth this week is very strong, so this a week not to miss! Vote now as the Internationali BNL d'Italia begins!
