Re: Madrid reinstates doubles

Thanks NYCtennisfan. Never hurts to have info twice when its good news! lol!

Glad to see Madrid do the right thing. I enjoy watching doubles...its really making me sad that it may eventually be phased out all together.

Re: Madrid reinstates doubles

I read in an article in the Daily telegraph(London) that Madrid had pulled out the doubles because there was a suit by players against the ATp for the new doubles rules. I think the ATP stinks for tampering with doubles.

Re: Madrid reinstates doubles

^I don't think it was ever going to happen. Hopefully they will have some really good matches there to forget about all of this.

Re: Madrid reinstates doubles

Good move
They should never have taken away the doubles in the first place.

Re: Madrid reinstates doubles

Tournaments will not be the same without doubles! I'm glad ATP made the Madrid tournament officials reinstate them!
