Saturday Women's Summary
Doubles - Final: (1) Huber/Raymond def. (2) Mirza/Vesnina 6-2 6-3
This is getting almost Navratilova-esque. Liezel Huber and Lisa Raymond now have four titles since the beginning of February: Paris, Doha, Dubai, Indian Wells. It's as if all competition has ceased for them. Huber of course remains #1, and Raymond is on course to become co-#1 soon.
Sania Mirza and Elena Vesnina were last year's champions, but they obviously weren't ready for the buzz saw they ran into. They lose some points, but they should stay Top Ten. But they're Top Ten in a doubles universe that, these days, seems to contain only two players.
