And I don't really get the Jarka doubles tandem. Not that she is bad, but Beth is soo good, why can't she find a more consistent doubles player, who is not so erratic.
I'm not really sure how it came about either. They're obviously good friends but it started last year when Beth came back shortly for a stint at the US Open and they played doubles together and reached the R3. They also reached the R3 in the Australian Open.
Even though I really love Jarka as a person, she just isn't the kind of doubles partner that is good for Bethanie. She needs someone who is experienced and who can hold them team up if Beth starts to drift away which she occasionally does. I kinda wish Lisa would just dump Liezel and get with Beth.
The MD spot in Doha is HUGE for Beth! Hopefully she can get a good draw and make a decent run. She lost R1 last year so any win is picking up much needed points!
