many things to comment...

No Errani/Vinci, Hlavackova/Hradecka... :confused:
Raymond/Hantuchova, Vesnina/Minella :eek:
Black and Erakovic are over? Playing with different partners... :wavey:
Kimiko back with Arantxa? U dump her for Goerges, then u lost in first round and now u want Arantxa back... hope it works again...
Huber still playing? I thought she would retire after US Open! Maybe she wants to play until the end of the season...

I do not think Kimiko dumped Arantxa at all... Kimiko was probably not very keen on going far in doubles in Seoul (with a Sunday final letting few time to go back to Tokyo before her 1st round there) and neither Arantxa who knew she would enter Tokyo's Q-draw.

your explanation gives more sense... if neither of them wanted to go far they could have played together, try to get into semis and then tank...

Nice move from Daniela to team up with Lisa. She's so much expierence and can motivate Daniela a little bit.
I guess Hingis make a smart move and call it a year so early.
