    Federer and Henin on any surface. The power play of Serena and defense of Nadal will not benefit them as much in doubles as in singles, as opposed to the touch and net skills of Federer and Henin.

    I could not agree more

    Federer will like to team with Serena more than Henin ;)

    I don't think you understood, who would win between Fed/Henin vs Nad/Serena.

    Mixed doubles is usually defined by the strength of the woman.

    I'd say Henin / Federer on Clay and Hard with Serena and Nadal on Grass.

    I would say Federer/Henin on every surface because they seem like they would compliment each other all around. Henin is the reigning queen of the clay (the 1 GS that Fed doesn't have), while Federer is the king of grass (the 1 GS that Henin doesn't have). Henin could play backhand, and Federer could play forehand. And they both have great hands at the net. On paper they should beat everyone, everywhere...

    But that's only on paper. Federer has said many times that he's not very good at doubles. Serena is the only one with REAL doubles experience, so that could make a difference. I also think doubles has a lot to do with personalities clicking... it's hard to imagine that Serena would click with anyone that didn't have the last name "Williams."

    All things said; I'd still put my money on Fed/Henin.

    No.......you should train Rodditha on how to bounce ball up to 30 times and serve straight flying up to the sky.

    You are wicked, i'm not the blond one. Why don't you go check on her and teach her how to use a racket and tell her that tennis is being played with a racket. lol.

    Federer's record in doubles isn't stellar.
    My pick would be Serena and Nadal. Serena will benefit from the fact that she can stand at the net and doesnt have to move much.

    I have to say nadal/serena too, fed is my fav. mens player and henin my fav. woman, but nadal has had better success in doubles than fed and serena has had much better success at doubles than henin.
