Australian Open 2008



Alona and Kateryna Bondarenko
Alona and Kateryna Bondarenko won their first women's doubles title

"Last year we didn't play very good doubles because sometimes we fought on the court. But now we are starting to listen to each other and understand each other, and maybe that's the key."
Alona Bondarenko preaches non-violence after she and sister Kateryna win their first women's doubles title

"I don't like to play against my sister."
The less-verbose Kateryna, who has won three of six singles matches against Alona

"Yeah, for me it's not easy because she plays more winners, has a good serve, good shots. For me it's very tough because she knows me and can easier win with me."
Thankfully Alona, the chatty one, is there to explain
