Escaping a 3-5 hole in the 2nd, and saving 4 breakers in the final game.

Sisters into the semis! They won the title in 2001, and couldn't defend last year, with Serena injured.

Too bad for Ai and Kim!
Sounds like they gave the sisters a run for their money though!
Go Serena and Venus for the title! Or else Mary and Rennae!

Sad for Kim & Ai but congratulations Serena and Venus. I bet it was a great match (next year I have to go to Melbourne or take the week off so I can watch TV all day!).

Venus WON a Grand Slam Doubles title last year- remember Wimbledon, when she and Serena defeated Suarez and Ruano-Pascual!!

Yeah...true...I can even remember Venus saying during the interview after she lost to Serena in the finals that they better win the doubles title becoz it would only be her GS title for the year.;)

Congrats... Venus/Serena.

I remember 2001 AO Final well - Lindsay lost her singles semi final the day before then lost the doubles final on the Friday while Corina won her mixed doubles final the next day on her b'day :) a nice couple of days there <g>

I'd love to see Davenport/Raymond to win the whole thing simply to get the AO doubles monkey off Davenport's back.

Though I don't think it will happen.

Great win Vee and Rena!!! Let's take the title home!!!

Jan 21st, 2003, 03:32 PM
That is great news. I have to go check the doubles draw to see who else is left... doubles coverage is pretty poor here...

Well played Vee and Rena!!:)
Kim/Ai:( But they have started the year really well. I just hope now that Kims scheduling/singles doesn't keep them from being a team throughout the year, they could do really well!!
Good luck Venus/Serena in the semis!!:D

Oh dear, motivation for Kim.

Jan 21st, 2003, 04:26 PM
yeah, the play davenport/raymond, but I think kim and ai are a better team, they have played more than them haven't they? oh well, they should be in the semis or finals whichever round they are in after this match.
