Seems you never saw Novotna in doubles.
Depending on how Jana is playing they actually beat Serena/Monica. Monica is not a good doubles player. At least not amiong the very bests. She can do decently.

Monica is a good dubs player. She and Martina- a scratch partnership- beat V & S in a great match.

For sure Seles is a good doubles player, i just was saying "decent" because she has never been to the finals of a grand slam in doubles. But she and Martina did a very good couple, actually Martina Hingis could partner with lots of players and win slams.

Seles bests Slams in doubles i think were with Mary Joe Usopen 99 and 2001 Australian Open with Hingis reaching quarters and semis respectively.

Compared to Jana who won tons of slams in doubles and Jana´s game is just perfect for doubles.
