Cara Black, Liezel Huber Break Up Doubles Partnership
Rumors had speculated that a break-up might be coming after Huber played doubles with Nadia Petrova last week in Charleston at the Family Circle Cup.
“On a personal note, my regular doubles partner, Cara Black and I are taking a mutual break from being exclusive doubles partners,” Huber wrote.
“Both Cara and I are entered in Stuttgart with different partners but we continue to strive to do what we love most and that is to compete on the tennis court. I just wanted to thank everybody for their support. It was not any easy decision but we announced it today. We both want to be better players and right now it is best for us to just take a little break. We might get back together and we might not.”
Black and Huber have not ruled out playing again together in the future.
“Do not be surprised to see us playing with each other or with someone else in the next couple of months,” Huber said. “It was not an easy decision. We have had a great partnership and we are appreciative of all the fan support.”
At press time, Black’s plans for the future were not known, but Huber plans to compete with Jelena Jankovic in Stuttgart and in Rome with Nadia Petrova.
