Ana-Lena/Meghann :confused: :eek: :wavey:

Anna-Lena is now with the same coach as Meghann, i think thats the reason why they partnered up
his name is Rafael Font De Mara (or so)

i think he is also the reason why Anna-Lena is on the fire :)

Maria Jose will just become a doubles player soon...

May 4th, 2003, 10:26 PM
I doubt we see a split there

Canīt it be that Cara decided to rest and Husarova on the other hand decided to test herself in doubles if having been injured ?

And regarding Hantuchova/Shaughnessy, Daniela has to defend lots of points due to her partnership with Arantxa and the team of her Meghann maybe split due to different aims they have in a season. Meghann is so far a solid competitor for a top16 seed at a GS again, they never did as well in doubles as they were supposed to do, Meghann as a former partner of Henin and Daniela due to her past with Sanchez

I donīt see any other important change. It was obvious ages ago that Elena suffered in singles and won matches with Janette in doubles. They changed her aims now and just plays doubles with Russians for fun rather than for the doubles rankings

I think that itīs even not impossible that weīll see Dementiewa/Kournikova regularly soon having in mind that Lina K and Myskina often teamed lately and that this would be a switchable team of 4 Russians mixing it ;)

Yes Chris, I agree! ;)

I donīt see any other important change.

That`s right, Chris! Am I the only one who misses the time when we had real Doubles specialists? I mean, it is strange to see players like Dementiewa seeded in Doubles. I miss teams like Lindsay/Natasha or before Gigi/Natasha, Arantxa/Hingis or Novotna/Hingis.

Most of the Doubles specialists retired: Novotna, Arantxa, Bollegraf, Nathalie, Meredith, Patty, Hingis :confused: , Natasha :confused:

Great for Anna-Lena...I wonder how she hooked up with Rafael...he is a really nice guy!

Daniela and Chanda? I must admit, I didn't see that coming.

May 5th, 2003, 10:16 AM
I think that Tarabini/Vis ignore the fact that their time is over - if playing together. Tarabini only wins matches alongside Salerni or Conchita, Vis only did well teaming Basuki.

I wonder WHEN either Shaughnessy, Hantuchova, Rubin or Martinez will find a steady partner within a season.

It might be though that some doubles players within the top30 accepted the fact of only 4 teams in LA and therefore decided having fun changing partners.

That might be a (small) chance for Martina/Sveta to qualify knowing that Serena/Venus will refuse to play. On the other hand, weīve 3 spots already assured of a seed, Kim/Ai , Lindsay/Lisa and Virginia/Paola, therefore Martina/Sveta MUST get a solid GS result somewhen in Wimbledon or the US Open to endanger Cara/Likhovtseva in their playing.

Cara/Elena had a couple of surprising losses so far this season but itīs obvious that they are still the hotter pair compared to Sveta/Martina due to playing more.

Interestingly enough, the split of Husarova/Dementiewa same as the inconsistency of Stubbs/Bovina among others only allowed Sveta/Martina to go that far. It will be interesting to see how long Martina (23rd) can improve her ranking and therefore improve her seeding situation for the 2 summer GS. They are so far among the 9th-11th seeds if all other teams above them play and Martina wonīt probably defend her Madrid title. That might endanger her top8 seed in Wimbledon which would definetly not only be a great success but also would avoid a hard draw in the round of 16 for her !
