Thumbs up The doubles in Madrid is NORMAL scoring!



Score of Paes/Zimonjic v. Dent/Ginepri currently stands at 6-1 1-6 4-4 40-15....



It's more than a little amusing that this tourney wasn't even gonna HAVE doubles and now they are using the normal scoring!?

Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by another human being.
Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light

It wasn't on the list of "test" places.

Re: The doubles in Madrid is NORMAL scoring!

I know but it's still amusing, considering they were all "we're not gonna have doubles in solidarity of the changes" and then they go and not only have doubles but use the regular scoring

or, maybe I'm just easily amused................

Re: The doubles in Madrid is NORMAL scoring!

Even though the tourny is not a test site, it is still ironic I think.

Re: The doubles in Madrid is NORMAL scoring!

Its an ITF tournament. Only ATP tournaments are testing the new scoring.

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.

Re: The doubles in Madrid is NORMAL scoring!

say huh? Since when is an ATP Masters event an ITF event. That doesn't make sense, Fee If it were an ITF event, they wouldn't have had a broo-ha-ha over the ATP lawsuit and the scoring changes in the first place!

Re: The doubles in Madrid is NORMAL scoring!

is this the first doubles match that was finished today? because i cannot see any other doubles results on the masters madrid's official website.

What frightens you?

Re: The doubles in Madrid is NORMAL scoring!

To clarify, Masters events are jointly owned by the ITF/ATP/Grand Slams. The ITF has not voted on the ATP doubles scoring changes, so it can't be used at their events. The lawsuit was just a lame excuse to save a few bucks anyway. Tiriac is a bit of a nut, isn't he?

Re: The doubles in Madrid is NORMAL scoring!

As someone who just played a normal scoring doubles match last night herself, I'm excited (despite the fact we will not get to see a minute of doubles coverage on TV ).

Also nice to see "normal scoring" is not keeping top singles players from entering the Madrid draw: Nadal, Roddick, Gaudio, Puerta, Ferrer, Blake, etc.

I seriously doubt the ITF will ever approve these changes, they are much less than the ATP.
