Women's singles.

Any thing better than the Bryan twins...

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.

Mixed doubles is the only true form of tennis.

Did you not enjoy the clinics your boy and Huey put on at Indian Wells?

It's like having to choose whether you'd rather drown or get buried alive.

At least Ana Ivanovic is very watchable, so women's singles.

Re: So MTF'ers, what do you prefer: Women's Singles or Men's Doubles?

To answer the question: Doubles.

Particularly, I'm basing that on my experience of watching them both live.

My girlfriend is the same, even. Every time we go to Indian Wells, we avoid women's matches like the flu. I'll tell her someone like Ivanovic is playing and she'll just shrug it off unless it's Maria.

Doubles on the other hand, whether it's the Bryans, or even Quisner, is electric. You really get a sense of the pace and the angles at play, and the crowd seems to eat it up so the whole atmosphere stays pretty fired up.

On average, I'd go with Doubles.

Kind of this. Doubles just don't appeal to me at all, while Ivanovic's beauty is the only reason I can finish watching a complete women's match . I usually watch parts of the women's SF and F of grand slams, but seldom the whole match.

ATP > Challengers > Futures > Doubles > WTA for me.

What's with your fetish for mindless weaponless pushers? Crapwanska is a horrendous pusher and not even particularly hot.

Womens singles for the drama and long rallies. Mens doubles is mainly full of big serves and short points. There are some teams I like watching though.

Doubles would be great if all the top players participated. It really only is boring to me because of the low quality and lack of box office players

Great, another thread with people bashing the WTA.
I enjoy the WTA and the men's doubles. It's not like the ATP doesn't also have some rubbish matches.
