PYW Doubles Sydney





Welcome to Sydney, Australia! After Brisbane, this is the second premier event of 2012 and, as usual, the line up doesn't disappoint! The top seeds, Květa Peschke of the Czech Republic and Katarina Srebotnik of Slovenia had a fantastic 2011 season, as did second seeds Liezel Huber and Lisa Raymond, both of the USA. The third seeds are the reunited team of Argentine Gisela Dulko and Italian Flavia Pennetta, who have had heaps of success while the fourth seeds are a new tandem, but certainly not lacking accomplishment between the two, in Russian compatriots Maria Kirilenko and Nadia Petrova. The draw is so strong though that defending champions Iveta Benešová and Barbora Záhlavová-Strýcova of the Czech Republic aren't even seeded and will be instead facing off with the top seeds in the first round! With these teams and so many more in action, Sydney will surely be exciting. Vote now as the Apia International kicks off!

Kev., for the reason you mentioned I never include alternates, even if I make this after they have played. It wouldn't be fair if some didn't get to play because I made the draw too soon while others did and since injuries don't affect PYW I just only include the original players.
