Re: Doubles Draw

Pathetic wildcard for Nadal and the old guy. But he has the power to have a big name. If he wants a wc, the clowns give him one.

the only German team that would make the cut would be Haas-Kohlschreiber I guess... would be strange to see them playing together somehow

Re: Doubles Draw

Kas-Troicki seem to have pulled out, Murray-Hutchins are playing against an alternate team according to tomorrow's OOP.

Francisco Roig. Used to be a player himself. Reached Top 100, and had better results in doubles than in singles. But he's 40+ now so it's a weird choice for a WC. JMG is right though, if Nadal wants a WC, he gets it. Regardless of his partner.

Re: Doubles Draw

Good Luck:

Dlouhy/Petzschner
Djokovic/Vemic
Fyrstenberg/Matkowski
Chardy/Simon
Nestor/Zimonjic

Congrats to Haas and Stepanek for winning their match already. I mean, Jérémy won one out of his 18 doubles matches this season and Simon one out of 12, so Haas/Stepanek practically need to only step onto court and they have already won.

That would be true for any of the top 4. As if Djokovic didn't rely on his big name to get his worldwide unpopular brother into some doubles here and there. If Murray asked for a WC to play doubles with whomever he wished he'd get it

Here and there in Djokovic's case is not in TMS events. It's one thing for Nadal to ask for/accept a WC in Chennai to play with someone like Salva-Vidal or Rotterdam to play with Coll-Riudavets - both of whom are young guys - than to show up with a non-Canadian retired player in such a big event as the Roger's Cup. Roig/Carbonell may have been a good team, but I doubt Roig ever made such a big impact upon Canadian viewers that they will want to see him.

Re: Doubles Draw

If Federer and Nadal team up for doubles, should they just give the trophy already to them? That would be a dream.

Would it matter to the viewers if Nadal had played with say Marc Lopez? I'm sure it wouldn't. If they go to that doubles match they'd do it because they want to see Nadal and Djokovic and their partners are of no interest no matter if they are Roig/Vemic/Lopez/etc nobody. TBH Rafa's decision to team up with his coach looks strange to me and is something I can't fathom. But that's the benefit of being named Rafael Nadal - sometimes you get what you want.
