Which player would you choose to play doubles with?

Thread title is clear. I am not really a doubles player (prefer singles) but if I could choose just anyone, I guess I would consider it.

My pick would be John Isner. Big serve so easy volleys for me, plus he has quite a lot of touch at the net himself.

So how about you?

Logical choice - the lefty Brian brother, whoever that is.
Tard choice - the GOAT.

Rafa. I will just bunt back the ball (or serve) then retreat to the side of the court where Rafa can play 1 on 2. His speed and passing shots should do the trick against a lot of lower calibre teams.

Doubt he could win on his one against two professional players.

Caro Wozniacki. It's not like the match against two pros would be winnable so might as well have fun

I can get that, although I would prefer after match fun with Wozniacki, but I didn't mean mixed doubles.

I believe his doubles partner once said: "The best doubles team in the world is John McEnroe and someone else".

Jonathan Marray or Jamie Murray.
They are both winners.
