Allowing Davis Cup doubles discussion on General Messages

I think Davis Cup doubles rubbers discussion should be allowed in the General Messages from now on.

It's different than normal doubles matches, cause it's associated with the tournament, I think a lot of people would like and comment on the General Messages.

Comments?

I'll go one further: the Doubles forum should just be integrated into General Messages.

Go look at the main page and see how many posts each thread has. It's a joke. The "Live Commentary" thread was opened in August of 2012!!! And it only has 895 posts. When will it reach 5,000 posts... in 2020?

Doubles threads and comments will not clutter up GM, the paucity of posts and threads in that forum is proof of that. What a shame that we relegate doubles to the "back of the bus" while allowing there to be a separate thread for every single quote by Rafa Nadal and every single quote by someone else about him (and that's just one example).

Re: Allowing Davis Cup doubles discussion on General Messages

maybe we could allow competitive exos with a tournament structure (with more than one match and some kind of title or trophy at the end) to be included in GM. But exos like Federer & Tsonga's at AO this year or the Fed/Rafa Match for Africa should not be included.

The only thing missing from Mubadala, Hopman Cup and Kooyong is ATP points (they do offer money and a trophy). You might say "prestige" but I bet some players are very proud to have won those events. They may have beaten a better field than at some obscure ATP250, and you often see quality tennis being played, not just goofy hit-and-giggle points.

I oppose. Doubles threads would get lost among all singles threads, it's better to have a separate doubles forum.

But I think DC doubles could be discussed in GM and moved to doubles forum after the tie has been finished and most discussion has ended in those threads.

I'd keep exhos mostly in the exho forum with one exception, off-season exhos. As there are no ATP matches going on, exhos are the only matches to talk about. At least there would be something new to discuss about at GM instead of all the same Fedull vol. 1001 threads. And of course, those exho threads could later be moved to the exho forum.

Re: Allowing Davis Cup doubles discussion on General Messages

About exho, on season they won't be allowed in GM. Off season.. That's a question of future, the season just started.

Never ever give up

I agree with August on this. If it were merged into GM, it would become near impossible to discuss doubles tennis. Having a doubles forum gives the few of us who want to talk about doubles a place to do so. The fact that the posts are few and often far between(as you rightfully point out) will mean that these threads would get lost in GM.

Yeah, I agree, my proposal was about doubles DC's rubbers. I think it's legitimate, cause it's not a normal doubles tournament, it's a match who is a part of Davis Cup and Davis Cup is discussed on GM.

Re: Allowing Davis Cup doubles discussion on General Messages

Yes, DC is great event and deserves to be in general messages plus I think swiss Team will go deep this year, so why to disappoint biggest fan base here?

Those three titles the Serb give him statistics on the surface than he does, considering he plays the same damn way he does on clay and still wins the title. Slow as fuck grass does that. It's the same for Nadal during 2006-11.
