Red face Bryans are in semi-finals without playing a match!!!

With a first round bye, 2nd round W.O. vs Nadal/Robredo and 3rd round W.O. vs Arthurs/Hanley, they are now in Montreal's doubles semi finals.

No wonder doubles is losing popularity. If the players dont care enough about it to bother to turn up

And if ATP continues to want more singles players to play doubles, this will very likely to happen more.

Re: Bryans are in semi-finals without playing a match!!!

i wanted Nabredo to stay in the doubles draw. They would have lost to these boys anyway



+ NADAL + GASQUET +
+ ANCIC + KIEFER + MATHIEU + GULBIS + FEDERER + ANDREEV + FERRER +
+ KARLOVIC + LLODRA + BENNETEAU + BERDYCH + ZIMONJIC +

Re: Bryans are in semi-finals without playing a match!!!

How to be an MTF tard, Lesson #2:

THIS IS AN AWESOME WIN FOR THE BRYANS!!!!!

end of lesson.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: Bryans are in semi-finals without playing a match!!!

Nadal has played more doubles this year than the rest of the Top 10 combined. He didn't use the token knee injury either this time so maybe his shoulder really does hurt.

I don't know what happened with the other doubles pair so can't comment on that.

But this Montreal tournament has been weird as hell so I don't think it has any impact on doubles as a whole IMHO.

Titles: 2005 - PAW Washington 2006 - PTS Marseille, TT Miami Doubles(w/coreyschucky), TT Tokyo Singles 2007 - TT Hamburg Doubles(w/SarettaFan) 2008 - TT Indianapolis Singles Finalist: 2005 - PAW Montreal & Bucharest 2006 - TT Acapulco Singles & Doubles(w/Iza), TT Houston Doubles(w/robrulz5), PTS Monte Carlo, TT Barcelona Doubles(w/Peta Pan), TT Newport Doubles(w/adee-gee), PAW Umag 2007 - TT Queen's Singles & Doubles(w/SarettaFan), TT Champaign Doubles(w/TommyB.) 2008 - TT Auckland Doubles(w/invu2day), TT Recanati Singles, TT Newport Doubles(w/sploush), TT Indianapolis Doubles(w/sploush)

Doubles is garbage anyways. I don't blame those guys for pulling out. Who invented doubles anyways? I don't see Lennox Lewis or Roy Jones Jr. having a doubles partner in the ring. So ridiculous...

I wonder what the most amount of consecutive walkovers a player / doubles team ever had in a single tournament.
