Wimbledon 2004 - Doubles

We know that Kim is playing far less doubles this year, but do we know if she intends to defend her Wimbly title with Ai? I hope so, it was a ball last year ...

Patiently waiting to join the silver surfers

Well, she can play doubles with Ai, or mixed doubles with Lleyts.

she hasn't really said something about I think, but I doubt she'll play doubles.
last year she said that, according to her, her bad performances in the grandslamfinals and semis were caused by playing too much matches, and that was the reason why she decided not to play doubles anymore.
so I doubt she will limit her chances on winning Wimbledon by playing doubles,
I'd love it if she would play doubles with Ai or Lleyton or someone else, but maybe it's better for her singles that she doesn't

COME ON KIM!

Thanks for everything Kim!!!

I just thought she might make an exception for Wimbly as its a title defence ... but I see what you are saying.

i guess she wouldn't play RG anyway becoz of an injury. If she is not sure she will be 100% fit for RG(single) then what we can expect about doubles but at Wimbly - why not??? but i still don't think she will play it becoz... Sarah said already everything about that

I think she will definitely not playing doubles at RG to limited the pressure on her wrist. I guess she wants to concentrate more on single when she really looking forward for the title.

I don't think Kim's gonna play doubles but I think it is always great whenever Kim plays. She's such a good doubles player even though she's not a specialist
My guess is Kim's focusing more on GS so she's not playing doubles. But if she's 100% fit so why not? I don't think it really does affect her performance in singles as long as she has a good partner to cover up the court, like Ai.

Look like this yr, Kim really wants one of the GS crowns. She looks very focus on those crowns, I think she really go for it. I don't think she will play any doubles this year.
