Save doubles!

Check this out: www.savedoubles.com
The site just went up a couple of days ago. It has all the information on the doubles changes, the lawsuit, the players opninions...

I really hope they succeed! Doubles should stay a sport and not become an exhibition

Re: Save doubles!

The two of you aren't even tennis fans, so just fuck off. You only come here to run of the mouth.

Re: Save doubles!

Doubles needs to stay as it is
the reason its not as popular is because of the lack of tv coverage

Another Game for Milos

Re: Save doubles!

I hope they succeed to repel at least some of the changes... those scheduled for 2008 are clearly aimed to exterminate the doubles speciallists.
I don't mind that they shorten sets to 5 games, but no-ad games? Tennis won't be the same without ads and deuces...
I can also live with the new entry system of better singles/doubles ranking.

Winner: 2006 - Acapulco, Portschach, 2005 - Marseille, Valencia, Bastad, Paris Bercy, 2004 - Kitzbuhel
Runner-up: 2005 - Doha, Estoril, 2004 - Indian Wells, Hamburg, Halle, Paris Bercy
Semifinal: 2004 - Houston, Casablanca, Nottingham, Stuttgart, Cincinnati

Re: Save doubles!

Doubles is wonderful to watch.. I'm happy every time I get the rare opportunity to watch doubles on tv during davis cup and grand slam finals.. Beats me why it is always being snubbed for singles.. The new changes are horrible!!
