Bit surprised, as Pavs retired last week from her singles match in Brisbane due to a thigh injury and today she lost relatively easy to Riske in 2 sets in Hobart. Wonder if it is wise for Pavs to play doubles as well as she seems a bit vulnerable at the moment. We'll see.Vera will play doubles with Pavlyuchenkova in Melbourne.
Happy she's playing doubles, but I'd hoped Sveta would partner her again.
Pavs ditched Watson to play with Bepa.
