Re: Doubles teams - What half do you prefer?

None of those!

Burgsmüller & Vacek have played some blinding dbles matches at Ordina Open this week! I'm so happy for them

Admittedly I like Max Mirnyi as a dbles player.

I can't bear to watch Mike & Bob Bryan. They fidget more than Roddick and Hewitt combined! Drives me nuts tbh

Re: Doubles teams - What half do you prefer?

The great team of Chubby Chela and Gaudio.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

I don't consider these two to be an 'established' doubles team since Massimo has been playing with Simon Aspelin for most of the past year...

Of the established doubles teams I only really like a few and in those I love Jonas best and I can't separate Santoro and Llodra.

Re: Doubles teams - What half do you prefer?

lol Braasch is cool. Though his game is absolute crap. It was in Rosmalen last week anyway, when he played with Tommy..
