whats more suprising is that davydenko played doubles. that guy has a phobia of the net. in singles the only time he is there is to shake your hand.

anyway, fed is on his way to the double

How nice indeed. Would love to be able to see his doubles matches.

I didn't expect Roger to play doubles, mainly due to the fact that he's played in about one event the past two years, but I doubt he will win this event at both singles and doubles. Roger better be careful not to wear himself out, given all the tennis he has played the past month.

Explain this to me, and I hope the question isn't completely idiotic as I'm a new fan to Tennis. How could he not win doubles more? Is it that Allegro isn't a great player? How can such a superb single player just do 'okay' in the doubles? Especially since Fed can S&V so well.

I mean, if we paired... lets say - Rafa and Roger together, or Andy and Roger - vs the Brian bros. Wouldn't Rog and Rafa be the overwhelming favorites?

Not true. He used to play doubles very often and, in fact, his partner was Andreev.

Bryan Brothers would destroy any of those pairings.

Roger is concentrating mainly on his singles performances and uses doubles mostly as practice sessions. He has won 7 titles in doubles in his career.

You don't get a great doubles team just when you pair the two worlds bests singles players. Look at the doubles teams who are successful - they play mostly together for a long time and have lots of experiences.

Have you ever played, no, watched a doubles match? It's very different. Anyway, Nadal can't volley, so... no doubles for him.

I actually never played a tennis match, period. As I said above (and kinda hope it would spare me the ridicule, actually), I'm a new fan of the sport, just started following for a year+ or so, and by being a fan I mean WATCHING the sport, not playing it. I'd seriously suck.

I did watch several double matches, though I admit not many, because they don't usually air them here, and I understand it's different, that's why I *asked*.
