Re: In measuring greatness, how many same-gender doubles slams is = to a singles slam
Doubles is not worthy of a comparison to singles, doubles is mostly for failed single players who were never good enough, or average single players who play doubles to bump up their career earnings, that's the only reason they bother. Vast majority of people don't care about who won what doubles comp in the years that follow let alone remember, not outside of super fans anyway. Just basically a load of average players shuffling around in small spaces making an easy living.
Let's not pretend otherwise.
First match back following a double grand slam and major coaching drama can be tricky, but Naomi manages to get probably the easiest second round match humanly possible in Dubai (Kiki Maldenovic). Naomi has to thank the Dubai organizers for granting a wild card to Fatma Al Nabhani in the main draw, which enabled Kiki to actually post a win in a WTA singles event. This is great for Naomi, Kiki, and Al Nabhani (who should really be contesting club matches against Alexandra Stevenson), so everybody wins!
Mladenovic wins 63 63
