Are Fab and Nenad breaking up as a Doubles Team?

I read in another Forum that Nenad was going to join another partner later this year :eek: Could this mean that Fab is going to retire? Or will he just get another partner?

No, it has nothing to do with Fab's retirement.
Nenad wanted to play with a real doubles specialist and when Nestor decided to part ways with Knowles, Nestor and Nenad wanted to play together.
But Nestor is now rethinking his decision (they are qualified for the Masters Cup with their French Open title, it doesn't make any sense to stop now), so maybe Fab and Nenad will keep playing together too for the rest of the season?

Otherwise Fab said he doesn't have any new partner yet and would probably play with different players, especially French players.
He also said he asked McEnroe, but McEnroe declined.

They're still playing Wimbledon together anyway.

I think Fab is a great Doubles player myself :) I know he still plays Singles, but of late his best rankings are as a Doubles player ;)

Any news on his doubles plans for 2008?

Det är redan bestämt att Max Mirnyj spelar Australien open i januari tillsammans med Santoro, eftersom Björkman och frun Petra då väntar sitt andra barn. Björkmans och Mirnyjs sista match tillsammans kan därför bli torsdagens avslutande gruppmatch mot israelerna Jonathan Erlich/Andy Ram.

looks like Fab is playing the AO with Max Mirnyi.

Ta! I'm scouting for doubles partners for Jamie Murray :lol: Is that just the one tournament? The only 2 guys available have paired up! *sigh*

I'm hoping that Bjorkman becomes so besotted with fatherhood this time that Jamie can keep Kevin Ullyet a bit longer that just that one tourney! ;)
