Ruano-Pascual/Suarez vs. Williams/Williams

For me this it the highlight of the tournament

I'm so happy that Vivi and Paola are in the finals

VAMOS VIVI/PAOLA!

Good luck

But venus and serena will have a better chance. i think suarex/pascual had a better chance against them at wimbledon b/c of how low the ball gets, and for their serves. but here, the balls are bouncing up high for them to really strike it hard, and they couldn't really handle the power on grass, venus and serena will roll. something like 6-1 6-2 or 6-2 6-3!

I think Williams/Williams will win 6-1 6-1. But again congrats to Virginia/Paola for getting this far. They did beat many good calibre doubles teams. I'd also like to give congrats to Gagliardi/Mandula for making the semis, i'm sure they were just as surprised as well.

I guess Williams/Williams dominating will prove that they did deserve the no.1 seeding!

Wasn't it this team that didn't like the fact the sisters were seeded #1?

Well, now they can shut up and put up and show the world why they should have been seeded #1...I like matches likes these and being live.. it's even better..

PUT UP PASCUAL & SUAREZ or go in hinding if the sisters give a beatdown.

Why do you people feel the need to be so agressive? Oh well, it makes it easier to be able to say that you are the one that should shut up because you do not know what you are talking about

From the AO website: http://www.ausopen.org/en_AU/news/ar...3002301aa.html

Ruano Pascual and partner Paola Suarez of Argentina are only seeded No.2 at Australian Open 2003, despite being the highest-ranked doubles pair in the world, but she doesn't think there as anything wrong with the Williams sisters receiving the top seeding at the event.

"If the tournament (officials) put them at number one I understand that," she said.

Last year Ruano Pascual and Suarez combined to win seven events together, including both the US and French Opens and made the final at Wimbledon.


That is having class. Whatever the result, Vivi, you've already shown them

Because they are losers and win nothing in this life. And so they consider every win of their faves as their own win. And any threat to their faves is considered as a threat to their own mental well being. That's why they get aggressive. There is nothing you can do about it. You can only be compassionate to them for their difficult and unrewarding life.

please ... vivi and paola have nothing to prove ... they won the french open and the us open last year, made it to the finals at wimbledon last year, and once again, they are in the finals

they should be the #1 seeds and they are the two top players in doubles ... well done girls
