Play begins tomorrow. Kiri and Nadia play against Errani and Vinci first. Time to get revenge for all those consecutive losses!

DAVAI MARIA/NADIA, I think they can win this! errani/vinci didn't play together for some time now, could be an advantage :cheer:

btw, kiri looks stunning on this pic, by far the most attractive, no chance for the others ;)

I love how Maria is awkwardly far from Liezel compared to how close all the other girls are :haha:

What doubles player is missing from that photo? Vinci?

Great win for the YEC doubles championship! Things look as they will split for 2013 though. Announcer on TC said Kiri will pair with Lisa Raymond. I think they should continue after this performance.

I'm so proud of Maria. She improve so much this year in singles, and every doubles year is better than the past. Miami title, YEC title, Bronze Medalist, French Open, Moscou, Hertogenbosch finalist, SF at Sydney, Madrid and Beijing.. this is stunning. Congrats girls :hearts:

Great for for Kiri and Nadia to end their year as a team and possibly their partnership by winning the YEC doubles title. :D :cool: But while I wanted Maria to change partners for 2013 I did not want Lisa Raymond to be Maria's partner as is rumoured. Raymond was a great doubles player at one point but is past her prime. She has less power than Kiri does and that's not what I want in Kiri's next doubles partner.

I hope she won't play with Raymond, it would probably be inefficient considering Maria needs a powerful player with her, like Nadia or Vika before. Too bad they only played together for the OG :sad:

I agree 100% She will not win much with Raymond. Hard to see why she is not playing with Nadia, maybe Nadia getting ready to call it a day?

Or Slava Shvedova. She is a Moscow girl also and grreat doubles player. Maybe they dont like each other.

I also like the idea of Kiri playing doubles with Ivanovic or Shvedova. Either one of them woud enable Maria to play her best game which is touch and feel and not have to worry about power. But if Masha partners with Raymond Maria become the power player. :eek: That is risky in my opinion. Now Maria has more power than Errani and Vinci yet these 2 Italian lightweights were the best doubles team in 2012 so power isn't everythng in doubles.
