this player has to play doubles consistantly. I'm sorry although i know Serena and Venus is the best team in the world, but they rarely play doubles. So who is that WonderWoman????

I would say probably Lindsay or Kim, they both have pretty good records in doubles.

Kimmy, no question.

If the W sisters played more doubles they might deserve to be best. Only IF

Serena wins most of the time when she plays with Venus. That doesn't necessarily make her a great doubles player. Looking beyond Venus, she only has played 2 tournaments - she won one and lost in the QF of another.

that's certainly true, she is partnered with another great player. But I wasn't saying she's a great doubles player. The question is who is the best at both. Given that Serena is far and away the best player in the world right now and one half the best doubles team in the world, I think that means she gets the prize, don't you think?

The question is who is best at both. I look at it like this; if I am a team captain and can choose from the top 20 singles players, which player do I want as a singles player? Serena, of course. Who do I want as a doubles player? Kim or Lindsay. So, the question then becomes, who would I want as a singles player and then as someone to play doubles with "fill in name." That's tougher, and I don't really have an answer. It would depend on the competition.

Why on Earth would you want Kim or Lindsay instead of Serena as your doubles player? I don't think there's any reason.

Although I may appear somewhat biased, I think the answer's clear cut: the Williams Sisters. They're #1 and 2 in the world, and they win virtually every doubles tourney they enter.

Yes, but you can't say the Williams sisters since they are two people. I think that for the sake of interesting discussion we should omit them since we know they are currently the best.

Anyway, I would definitely say the answer is Lindsay. She's currently a more accomplished player than Kim in either department, who is likely 2nd.

IF we are going by a player who plays doubles consistently then you have to go with Kim....#2 in singles ...not sure of rank in doubles but she has had good results. I wouldn't pick Lindsay b/c she hasn't been getting the results in singles that she should be esp when compared to Kim.
