Re: Doubles Whores
Its all a function of the rankings and what you have to do to be one of the Top 16 teams in the draw. It also comes down to who you feel comfortable playing with, who you've played with before, who you might want to play with again, who is looking for a partner, etc. Most of the 'doubles specialists' know each other and get along well, so they don't have a huge problem with it, but the lack of job security and low paychecks wears thin after a while.
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.
