What is going on with the Bondarenko sisters? Sure, they have been upset by some very strong teams, but they should have won at least a few of those matches. On the other hand, Alona's injury problem was rather significant, so it may just be taking her a long time to get match-tough again. One of those aforementioned good teams--Maria Kirilenko and Flavia Pennetta--defeated the sisters in the first round in Moscow today, 6-4, 6-4.
I don't know if Pennetta and Kirilenko will continue to play together--Pennetta has had so many doubles partners. She played well with Elena Dementieva and well with Gisela Dulko, and she has paired with other players, too.
