    This is a "2-part question", just like Dr. Nick from The Simpsons.

    1. Why don't Venus and Serena play doubles anymore?

    2. Why is Martina Hingis playing so bad these days?

    :D :D

    1. They're afraid of losing.
    2. She has lost her confidence and she's not as good anymore.

    Don't they have 6 GS doubles titles, including 2 Wimbledon doubles titles? I guess they just think doubles suck. :D

    2/ Not enough improvement in her overall game, and serve since her glory days.

    I agree about prioritizing the singles. Doubles are really for "losers" (mind the language) who can't win in singles. Guess the Williams sisters don't like doubles because of that. :D
