Paris Masters 2006 Doubles Final more exciting than Singles Final?

I know many of you couldn't care less about doubles matches. Personally, I love doubles, especially when the best teams are competing. The way things have developed in Paris Masters, if I was given the choice which of the 2 finals to watch, I would prefer the doubles final without any hesitation.

If you think about it, who wouldn't want to watch this match:


Arnaud "I'm too sexy for my bandanas " Clement and Michael "I split with Santoro to focus on my singles career " Llodra against Fabrice "I have more shots than Federer and I like it" Santoro and Nenad "singles is for girls " Zimonjic

Santoro/Zimonjic beat the #1 team (Bryan/Bryan)
Clement/Llodra beat the #2 team (Bjorkman/Mirnyi) Sorry GlennMirnyi!

Such a pity Masters TV will not show the doubles final like they did in Madrid. Or will they?

I am a doubles fan and I agree this appears to be a better match. I think on the ATP site you can watch the match for free on livestream. Or the actual masters site. Good watching

Bjorki/Mirnyi x Llodra/Clement was the real final...

Personly, I prefer double final this year. Allez Micka et Arnaud !

You are right. I just saw on the ATP website that Masters TV is showing it for free!

I'm not sure about this. Although they should show more doubles, it is nice to see two different names in a TMS Final for a change

Yes. Like Metis said, one team upset the #1 seeds while the other upset the #2 seeds. Would have loved to watch the semis.

Re: Paris Masters 2006 Doubles Final more exciting than Singles Final?

Fab & Nenad are truly awesome and they always have so much fun together.

Oh, I don't agree with your assessment of Nenad by the way. He does play singles every now and then, but he just is not good enough compared to his doubles level. He could have a nice career in Challengers if he wanted to, but this is just working better for him. Occasionally, he does enter a Challenger in singles (qualifying) and does well.

yeah i manage to find this page, but like u said only a black screen, nothings loading.
i read somewhere that only countries listed can see the live stream, unfortunately Australia is not one of them...i think this might be the reason, but im not sure if greece is on the list or not.

thankyou anyway
