Talking Wouldn't it be a shame if...

- Martina never wins a slam again!
- Martina never wins the French Open
- Lindsay never defends a Grand Slam championship
- Martina and Venus never play doubles together
- Lindsay and Martina never play doubles together
- If Mary decides to retire at the end of the year
- If women's tennis never gets to see equal pay at all the Slams
- If we have seen the best from Lucic
- If Seles doesn't get to add another Grand Slam to her total of 9
- If Kylie Minogue never joins the WTA <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">

What do you guys hope to see happen?

jomar- huh?

I doubt Lindsay will ever defend a Grand Slam title. She may win one again but I doubt she will defend it.

OMG Moon, how dare you shatter my dream like that! <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">

I think the 2 most talented women on the tour teaming up for doubs would be fantastic, even though i like the Spice Girls maybe just for a tourney or 2...

I think hell would freeze over before Martina and Venus teamed up for doubles. <IMG SRC="smilies/tongue.gif" border="0">

More possible shames:
- If Anna never won a WTA title.
- TV coverage of WTA tour decreases.
- The Chase Championships never came back to MSG.
- If Martina retired in 2 years.

Lindsay and Martina have already played doubles together, and they have even won a title! I think it was Philadelphia '97 <IMG SRC="smilies/redface.gif" border="0">

Thanks for the info Caio Braz, i didn't know they've already partnered each other.

Consis, that was one of mine too, i just forgot to put it in there, it would be a real shame if Anna went through her career without a win, and it's tough seeing her lose early in tourneys, all you need to do is think back to 98 OZ, or semi final appearance at Wimby in 97, when she plays well, she can beat anyone, and there's no doubt she has the talent to go all the way!

martina and lindsay have indeed played together before:

Martina Hingis (SUI) & Lindsay Davenport (USA) [5:0 - 100.00%] verses:

1997 Stanford (1) 1 D.Graham/R.Grande W 6-2 6-4
1997 Stanford (1) QF K.Schlubekir/J.Scott W 6-3 6-0
1997 Stanford (1) SF E.Likhovtseva/A.Sugiyama W 6-4 6-4
1997 Stanford (1) F C.Martinez/P.Tarabini W 6-1 6-3
1999 Filderstadt (1) 1 M.Bollegraf/P.Tarabini W 7-5 6-1
1999 Filderstadt (1) QF K.Po/A-G.Sidot L walkover

They have combined pretty well - and i think they would be a FANTASTIC team if they played regularly....
