Natasha was the best of the 90's

Hingis is the best now

in the next few years it will be Roberta Vinci.

Natasha Zvereva is my personal favourite, because of her personality and exciting game.

But the best doubles player of all time has to be Martina Navratilova. I don't know the stats, but if you looked at them that's pretty obvious. And she's still playing well even now!

Others: Pam Shriver, Gigi Fernandez, Helena Sukova.

Of current doubles players, Lisa & Rennae are the most consistent, but I have to say that the most talented doubles teams and the most enjoyable to watch are Black/Likhovseva, Hingis/Kournikova, Williams/Williams. Also Davenport/Morariu but obviously Morariu is no longer playing.

Other great current doubles players would be Aranxta Sanchez-Vicario & Ai Sugiyama.

Active players: Martina Hingis, Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario, Lisa Raymond and of course, Martina Navratilova <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

All time: Martina Navratilova

I liked Fernandez/Zvereva, Shriver/Navratilova and Sanchez/Sukova [and Sanchez/Novotna] as teams <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"><font color=#47515f size=1>

Interesting stats:

Navratilova/Shriver have the longest doubles winning streak in history of an amazing 109 matches between April 83 to July 85.

20 Grand Slams and 78 titles altogether.

Martina Hingis looks like she might equal this, as she already has 8 slams, and 34 titles at the age of 20.

Lindsay Davenport is a little underestimated as a doubles player, given that she has 3 slams, 34 titles, and 1 Olympic title.

Helena Sukova won 9 slams, 5 mixed, 68 titles altogether with various high profile partners including S-V, Hingis, Zvereva, Novotna, Graf.

Aranxta S-V has 6 slams, 4 mixed, and 61 titles in all.

I think Lindsay's Olympic title is in singles (96) and not in doubles? Arantxa has two Olympic medals in doubles too (silver in 92 and bronze in 96) + 5 Fed Cup titles, I think Arantxa and Conchita together hold the record for more victories in doubles in the Fed Cup, with a record of 18-3, going undefeated since 1989, when they lost vs. USA (Garrison/Shriver).

I haven't had time at the moment to read all the comments but I just have to say Natasha Zvereva was brilliant but Lindsay and Corina made a good team

GET WELL SOON CORINA!!!!

Current player: Martina Hingis
Current team: Serena & Venus Williams (at their best, no one can beat them).

All-time: Martina Navratilova without a doubt. She has won the most number of Grand Slam womens doubles titles - 31 in all; and the most number of doubles tournaments - 165.

All-time team: Martina and Pam, who were just too good for everyone else.

williams/williams- i agree they're good singles players but that's kinda it. personally i just disagree with their doubles game with a passion. and i'll leave it to that

the kournikova/hingis team is by far my favourite. i hope they get well soon

same for davenport and morariu
