Definately, john is probably a better player than the majority of doubles players out there on the main tour even now

Go mcenroe

I like Goldstein but I don't think he or Thomas are the calibre of doubles players of either Jonas or Mcenroe. I have never liked Mcenroe as a player but I can't help hoping he and Jonas will win - I'm hoping it'll wear off soon.

Not taking into account McEnroe is 47 ? And that Goldstein/Thomas made USO SFs in September, taking out Knowles/Nestor in the first round?

Being 47 didn't stop him from taking out some other very good doubles teams.

I'm not denying that, but she says Paul & Jim aren't the same calibre. But that is one disadvantage John is at, his age. I agree he has been an unbelieveable tennis player, but that has to be a factor.

And their outstanding results since are... oh yeah not much of an impact since the Open. I'm a Canadian but Nestor and Knowles are not what they used to be. Bjorkman is the key and he is a vastly better doubles player than either Goldstein or Thomas.

Give me a break, someone has to defend the underdogs! I think it will be a classic match, and very much looking forward to it. Chill out (please), and enjoy the match!

I'll concede I am not as much about the underdog as you but I'm not one to back a winner just for the sake of it. Honestly I don't feel really strongly about this one so I wish Goldstein\Thomas luck but I'm sticking with my pick. You enjoy as well.
