Doubles is an entertaining game to watch and I'm convinced it could be more popular if changes were made.(Not the ones the ATP have made)
Federer does not play a lot of doubles, though, when compared with Rafael Nadal. My concern is that a combined ranking like the proposed would put Rafael Nadal at number 1, because he's played more and more successful doubles on the whole.
And that wouldn't be right, IMO.
