How to make Doubles More Popular for TV

1. Come up with team names like the tag teams in wrestling hehe (e.g. The Rockers)

2. no team changes for the rest of the year to avoid confusion for the fans and media

ironic though that when you're a club player, doubles is more popular to play than singles, yet in terms of watching tennis on TV, singles becomes more interesting...

Re: How to make Doubles More Popular for TV

The first option would make it seem corny and even more laughable than it already is to watch.

The second option limits players to maybe develop rivalries, or dull storylines.

Y'know, like Bubba McPatterson leaves his teammate JoJo Billybob halfway through the season to find a new partner, only to have the two meet up in a grandslam final later on. That sounds a lot more interesting. Also, it conflicts with scheduling problems, maybe one player can't make, forcing the other to sit out.

Shirtless (for most of them). It's all you need. Have you ever seen Jordan Kerr?




I'm joking (or... am I?)

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Make them wear Nadal's shirts and Bjorn Borg's shorts.
