Re: Maria should play Doubles or Mixed Doubles at a Grand Slam

As much as I'd like her to add to her accomplishments, if you've ever seen her play doubles, you'd understand that she will NEVER win a slam in doubles.

I don't think she should. It would just take away from her singles and it wouldn't really benefit her game all that much.

Re: Maria should play Doubles or Mixed Doubles at a Grand Slam

Meh, it'd be nice, but doubles just isn't her thing. I'd rather her focus her energy on singles, instead of wasting it on trying to get to R2 in doubles or something.

No she shouldn't.

Winning doubles and mixed doubles Slams means absolutely nothing.

Re: Maria should play Doubles or Mixed Doubles at a Grand Slam

It would be fun, but it wouldn't be successful I'm afraid.

She isn't a natural doubles player in any single way. And it takes time to develop doubles chemistry.

Re: Maria should play Doubles or Mixed Doubles at a Grand Slam

I don't really care about doubles as far as titles go, but I would like to see her improve her netplay. She might have missed the boat in not playing more doubles as a developing youngster (the way Azarenka and the Williams sisters did) but I still think she could at least make her net game passable at this point in her career. It would take so much pressure off the rest of her game.

Re: Maria should play Doubles or Mixed Doubles at a Grand Slam

I'd love to see her doing that when her singles career will be over. She can get a good Russian partner (Maria, Nadia, Elena, whoever she prefers..) and start a doubles career, winning slams in doubles and all! We'll get to see her on court for many more years! But I don't think it'll happen!

Mixed probably, with someone like Mirnyi or Nestor

Doubles - definitely not or only with Serena )))
