I don't think they'll split up. Yes, they haven't had too many good results but they played well in Fed Cup (okay, it was a dead rubber) but I think part of the problem is they haven't really synchronised their schedules so they haven't been able to get into much of a groove. Andi played Shenzhen while Lucie played Brisbane and the latter withdrew from Paris. Andi also played Doha last week and I think she must have been jetlagged for her R1 doubles seeing as she was playing her Doha QF on Friday evening. It must have taken a few flights to get to Memphis for her R1 doubles on Monday afternoon.
Anyway, pleased she put up a good fight to beat Mel in singles. I thought she played fairly well in the third set.

"I will now call her LP Hlavackova - low percentage Hlavackova. I hope she doesn't drive a car the way she drives her groundstrokes!"
