Doubles Survey

This may have already been posted elsewhere, and I apologise if it has, but I think everyone should fill out this questionnare, it is a great cause and could lead to greater exposure of professional doubles.. After all it is a great game -- please everyone, get onto it!

Re: Doubles Survey

Thanks Emily.. Comeon guys get posting - and thoughts on the survey here. Some of the questions seemed obvious like players should interact with fans more during matches, but each player has their own brain!
And I don't see how the ATP would get Federer,Moya, Safin etc to play doubles unless they wanted too. But I filled it out in order to try and get most exposure.
I don't seriously think they would over change the format of doubles!!

Re: Doubles Survey

(I'm almost asleep... 5 more minutes )
I've posted the link in the yahoo group in my sig... maybe some people there will do it too. There are allegedly 107 members (yes, I'm boasting. But I'm so proud ) so some of them might want to do it

If only they had a comments section:
"Put doubles players, with their names written on their shirts, in as replacement ball kids during high profiles singles matches. Then during sets they can amuse and interact with the crowd..." Ah Madrid...

Re: Doubles Survey

Very true.... I also enjoy watching doubles. Doubles are too much neglected.

That's one of the reasons why I love Davis Cup, because there, the doubles match has a pretty high value

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Re: Doubles Survey

i have done it. ATP really should do sth to save the doubles matches' market. Any fan wouldn't like to see doubles matches disappear someday. The questionare is a good way to listen more fans' voices, but i hope ATP won't only think this problem on the skin.
