I know not many of you are interested in doubles but good effort by Mary & Rennae to win 3-6 7-6 6-3 to set up a semi final with Navratilova & Kuznetsova.

Paola and Virginia mustn't like playing Mary in doubles. She's beaten them this year twice, once with Rennae and once with Nadia Petrova as well as having that French Open final win over them along with Martina Hingis.

Paola & Virginia needs to separate now....their team has been very successful but others have adjusted to their games already.:sad:

Well that's rubbish. They've won titles and made three grand slam finals this year. Hardly a struggling partnership.

Guess that means no #1 ranking for Virginia :(

I can't see them seperating, they're good friends, and I really hope they don't, (not that they need to anyway - as has already been pointed out they have been runners up at all three GS's so far this year, to name but a few of their acheivements). They smile and laugh and have fun on court, whether they're winning or losing, which is great to watch regardless of their results. :D Anyway, I think part of what makes their partnership work is the fact that they are friends, they have played together for so many years that they instinctively know what each other will do and they have fun playing doubles together - they wouldn't have that with another partner.

If someone had to beat them, I'm glad it was Mary and Rennae, so :worship: to them, but :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad: for all Vivi's missed opportunities to get the #1 ranking. I really can't see that it can happen this year now. :sad: But, they've had a great year at the top of the game, and if that's all they get, it's still better than most teams. Hopefully though they keep fighting next year and with slightly fewer points to defend will make it back to the top again.

Whatever, as long as they're smiling and having fun, whether they're ranked#1 or #101, I'm happy. :D

Congrats Mary :) I like Vivi/Paola simply coz they always stay positive and happy even though they're losing... you could like see them laughing most of the time even when they're down....

I think that Stubbs and Pierce should stay together as a doubles partnership as they seem to do very well together. I hope they will play the US Open as a team.
