Re: Fed Playing Doubles in Dubai with Allegro!!!!

I thought top players don't play doubles.


So get that clown Federer out of the top 10.

Re: Fed Playing Doubles in Dubai with Allegro!!!!

Why exactly is Fed playing doubles? Fun or match practice?

Re: Fed Playing Doubles in Dubai with Allegro!!!!

It isn't a surprise at all, since whenever Federer is playing doubles, it is with his old buddy Allegro. He played last year with Yves Allgro in Dubai too.
It has become pretty rare though, and the success hasn't been too great:

In 2006:
Dubai: 6-1 6-7(4) 6-10 vs Knowles/Nestor
Indian Wells: 6-7(4) 5-7 vs Gasquet/Grosjean
Monte Carlo: 6-3 3-6 10-6 vs Levinsky/Safin
6-1 6-2 vs Huss/Vizner
4-6 5-7 vs Bhupathi/Stepanek

In 2005:
Hamburg: 6-3 6-4 vs Ferrer/Hrbaty
4-6 2-6 vs Paes/Zimonjic
Halle: 6-3 5-7 6-3 vs Damm/pavel
w.o. vs Canas/Nalbandian
7-5 RET vs Bhupathi/Woodbridge
7-5 6-7(6) 6-3 vs J. Johansson/Safin (Title!)
Cincinnati: 7-6(5) 1-6 6-7(2) vs Friedl/Pavel

The two have also won the doubles in the two Davis Cup matches Federer played in 2005 and 2006 against GBR and SCG, respectively.

Anyway, I think the reason Federer plays the doubles from time to time is because he likes to play with Allegro and also to get some extra match practice in after long breaks, e.g. in Dubai after chilling 1,5 month post Aussie Open.

Re: Fed Playing Doubles in Dubai with Allegro!!!!

It's pretty obvious Fed plays doubles with Allegro because he (both of them, I gather) enjoys it. They've done so on many occasions before. Besides that, they're also good friends.

I also think he uses it just to try and get his touch and timing back in working order after a couple of week's rest. Extra match or two, bit of volleying practice, bit of fun, lovely.
