I was hoping they would go long into this tournament. Both haven't had success on the singles side of things (Pennetta-Marbella but dropped her top 10 ranking.) I just like watching them both play together and apart. It would have been nice for them to win a 5th (?) title or play in a final against Davenport/Huber. said...

Really effective information, much thanks for the article.
