Doubles update

There was another doubles upset today at the French Open. Julia Goerges and Andrea Petkovic defeated Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Meghann Shaughnessy 6-1, 1-6, 7-6.

On Saturday, Flavia Pennetta will play her Fed Cup team members as the top-seeded team of Gisela Dulko and Pennetta take on the Italian team of Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci. Errani and Vinci are the 15th seeds.

In mixed doubles, tops seeds Katarina Srebotnik and Nenad Zimonjic advanced to the second round with a win over Kaia Kanepi and Robert Linstedt.

Speaking of mixed doubles--Amelie Mauresmo had planned to compete with Michael Llodra this year, but the French Tennis Federation forbade her to play because she is no longer part of the anti-doping system.

Surprised you haven't done another doubles update. I think I remember you liking Lucie , I'm a big fan of Andrea, and they are in the Finals.

I don't know much about women's doubles (don't really understand the "one up/one back configuration"), so I was looking forward to your commentary.
