Lets say these players agreed to play together in doubles, which pairing is most likely to succeed?

1. Lindsay/Martina<br />2. Venus/Martina<br />3. Lindsay/Serena<br />4. Venus/Serena<br />5. Lindsay/Venus<br />6. Martina/Serena

OH, I love to see this pairings do a real battle.

Take your pick.

For me its. Lindsay/Martina<br />then..... Serena/Martina<br /> Lindsay/Serena<br /> Venus/Martina<br /> Venus/Serena<br /> Venus/Lindsay

Venus/Serena<br />Venus/Martina<br />Lindsay/Serena<br />Venus/Lindsay<br />Serena/Martina<br />Lindsay/Martina

The only reason why I put Lindsay/Martina last is because of Martina's serve and Lindsay's flexibility. But I think those two would beat any team other than Venus/Serena.

Well Serena and Venus have destroyed the tour in doubles.. so naturally I am gonna go with them first.

Then Venus and Lindsay, I can see Lindsay and Venus pouncin' on Hingis's service game if they played Hingis and Serena. Imho Hingis has great volleys and hands but her serve will leave the girls in a bad position.

I think if Serena and Venus were to play Hingis and Linds now that they would crush them! Serena is getting more comfortable at the net and Venus is a dangerous player. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Serena and Martina H. would be fantastic together. Serena is usually the one to fire up the Sisters team. Serena could learn doubles nuances from Martina, and Martina would definitely benefit from playing with this powerful and passionate partner.

Plus, best of all -- their names rhyme! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

As a pairing, Venus and Serena are the best, IMO.

However, Martina Hingis and anybody, comes pretty close.

Keep in mind that it was Martina H., who paired with Monica Seles (who is good, but not usually a doubles player these days), to break the Williams win streak in doubles. Not to mention it was their first time playing together.

That combined with the fact she won the grand slam in doubles in 1998, with 2 different partners, and has won doubles slams with different partners... I tend to feel that Martina combined with anyone has a good shot.

However if I got to pick, I'd love to see Martina and Venus play together - though I accept this wont ever happen <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
