Amélie should play more doubles next year, if only for the match play. From what I saw at the Open (in between taking photos and drooling <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> ), she's a good doubles player....she just needs a stronger partner. I was thinking maybe Mary P., if she's available, would be a good one.
Whatever, it should be interesting! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">
I say she should team up with Chanda again! They kicked butt before... they should get together and do it some more!! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">
Not Lindsay! Just what we need both of them hanging their head at the same time. <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0"> They both need bright sunny individuals to keep their spirits up. I'll have to admit that I considered Lindsay though.
I like Chanda but I also like the idea of her teaming up with Sugiyama. Any other suggestions?
Maybe Arantxa again?, since I read somewhere she and Martina aren't going to team up next year. Can anyone remember if Amelie plays ad. side or the deuce? (Linnie?). I think I read somewhere that the reason for Arantxa and Martina no longer playing together was because both prefered to play on the ad side.
I agree, Amelie needs a stronger partner. The extra match practice, and more play in a 'relaxed match environment', would be good for her I think. She is definitely capable of being a good doubles player.
The shorts, well, I seem to remember someone quoting from Ciney that Nike have asked her to wear skirts, but... who knows! <font size=1 color=white>

Oh well, at least your SMH link confirms that Hingis and Kournikova are playing together, so that's two possible partners to cross off the list! (Not that I ever thought there was any danger of Amelie partnering Martina Hingis! <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> )<font size=1 color=white>
