Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

Roger won. Doubles Final coming on. Don't know about stream yet.

It is windy and was drizzling. Windy conditions suit Lisa/Liezel IMO since the ball will be moving around before Elena and Sania set up to hit their big strokes.

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

Premier and Higher Events Liezel Hasn't Won: Brisbane, Indian Wells, Stuttgart, Brussels, Roland Garros, Olympics, New Haven, Beijing.

Premier and Higher Events Lisa Hasn't Won: Brisbane, Madrid, Brussels, Olympics, Cincinnati, Beijing.


Indian Wells off the list for Liezel. The big goals now are Madrid, Roland Garros, Olympics, Cincy, Beijing for missing titles.

Who cares about Brisbane, Stuttgart, Brussels, New Haven? Not them since they aren't going to be playing any of them this season

It was too late for me to follow it live, but getting the good news as you get up is priceless!

4th in a row, wow! Well done, Lisa/Liezel!

INDIAN WELLS, CA, USA - Liezel Huber and Lisa Raymond extended their win streak to 16 matches and four tournaments on Saturday, cruising past Sania Mirza and Elena Vesnina in the final of the BNP Paribas Open, 62 63.

Having swept Premier-level titles at Paris, Doha and Dubai in February, Huber and Raymond kept it going as the top seeds at Indian Wells, surviving some adversity early on - they saved two match points to beat Marina Erakovic and Monica Niculescu in the second round - but finishing strong, crushing Iveta Benesova and Barbora Zahlavova Strycova in the semifinals, 61 62, then winning nearly as easily against No.2 seeds Mirza and Vesnina.

"Right now we're just playing well," Raymond said. "When we step on the court we feel the other team is going to have to play really well to beat us, whether or not there are tough conditions. We've proven that over the past few weeks. And even if anyone ever thinks we're down and out, we'll find a way to win."

"If we're ever having a bad moment we try to keep it as short as possible," Huber said. "Like if I've made an error or two errors, I know it's not permanent, just take two minutes, forgive yourself and move on. Just think of the next game.

"Our run has been unbelievable - we've come close to losing at times, but we've worked very hard, and the hard work has been showing in our great results."

Raymond has now won the Indian Wells doubles title seven times, and with four different partners (three times with Lindsay Davenport, twice with Samantha Stosur and once each with Rennae Stubbs and Huber). For Huber the title was even more meaningful - it was her very first time winning this tournament.

"I've never even played on center court here before!" Huber beamed. "I had never really made it out of the early rounds before this. It's just amazing, this is an amazing tournament and the people here are so supportive of doubles."

"I love playing here," Raymond added. "The conditions really suit my game and the fans come out and support doubles a lot. It means so much to us. There's nothing like playing in front of a big crowd - they definitely helped us this week."

Huber and Raymond now have eight WTA titles since joining last April, four in 2011 (Toronto, US Open, Tokyo, WTA Championships) and four so far in 2012.

Huber now has 52 WTA doubles titles to her name, placing her at No.15 on the Open Era list; Raymond now has 78 WTA doubles titles, putting her at No.6 (and just two behind the No.5 player in the list, Natasha Zvereva, who has 80).

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

I am loving this winning streak Is it closing in on Lisa's or Liezel's best ever yet?

Did Lisa really get to 22 with Lindsay cause I can't think when that would have happened?


Even more satisfying to now be beating this team, they should never have had such difficulty against them. RG is a one time ago but still annoys me!

Make it a 4th IW-Miami double Lisa

Really? I know I've got pretty mad over it the last couple years. Shocking how she can win an event 7 times and still have 4 straight losses.

But apart from breaking the record for most IW wins, it's also good to finally get Liezel a trophy she's never won after all those new ones Lisa got in February.

Tough one.

For singles, AO win over Venus was a nice one.
I still need to watch her 97 win over Hingis though.

For doubles, there are too many to choose from. It's so difficult to look past the USO 2011 final atm.

AO 2000 final is one of my have matches ever though. Perfect mix of quality and drama, and it was Lisa and Rennae's first, so I'll probably say that.

USO 2005 final, I've only watched once, but the quality is ridiculously good from all 4.

If camera men are not sent to certain courts, then there is no way it can be shown. She said TTC tried to get access to doubles (men's and women's) and also women's ground matches this year, but were unsucessful. She did state they were going to try again next year.

I love TTC, but their coverage is It would be awesome to get coverage of the women's event like they do the men's. You really get to see every male player play, no matter what the rank. I asked her if there was anyone we could write to about the matter, and she replied and said she would find out. So if she does, I will pass the words and all of us need to be sending out some letters!

She also said that majority of the responses she got said they were most interested in seeing the Bryans and Lisa/Liezel
That's amazing. Would love to get involved, even though I can't get TTC.
