According to the AVP's Hans Stoulfer's "Hot Stove" segment, Elaine Youngs and Rachel Wacholder have kissed and made up. After Elaine was given the Croc by co-Olympian Nicole Branagh (see MOJO TV video, featuring ME!) she found her new partner in the unlikeliest of places.
For those of you who have forgotten, EY and Rachel were partners once before. It ended in a brutal cage match only shown on European TV. While Rachel seems to be one of the more low key players, but when the two of them got together their were fireworks. Here's a video from one their ref-induced explosions on the court. Ah, good times.
The AVP keeps a pretty tight hold on the press. I have searched for hours for video of the center court beach smack. Unable to find the actual footage, I have been left to my own devices to imagine what exactly happened that day. Unfortunately, Stoulfer gives us a little more insight on their on court breakup. My vision is better.
"I can answer you this: the last time Elaine Youngs and Rachel Wacholder shared court space and sided out together in France and Austria, phrases like “You’re a no-talent hack!” and “You’ve got no [expletive] (CPP: my guess is that is "fucking" is the expletive) balls!” were heard more than once by fans in the stands. Fortunately, no one listening (besides other American players) fully understood their intonation."
And now EY, probably showing a GREAT deal of humility has begged Wach back. However, if we see the same kind of disappointing finishes as Rachel had with Kerri Walsh, look for both of them to be scouring for hot young upstarts. I'll give 4 to 1 odds that this will happen prior to the Manhatten Beach Open.
