Federer Playing Doubles At Grand Slams?

Has Federer actually played any doubles at the Grand Slams?

I noticed he is playing doubles with Allegro at Indian Wells and I was thinking it would be interesting if he could at least play doubles at Wimbledon as he knows he doesn't really have to stress too much about his singles tennis there because he always does so well.

BTW, I'm surprised by how many high ranked singles players have entered into playing doubles at Indian Wells.

Because Indian Wells is too long for short matches and players need to fill their breaks.

Federer played occasional doubles in the slams until 2003.

uh..

I dont think Federer would risk playing doubles, he might get burned out, especially if he is not used to it.

Re: Federer Playing Doubles At Grand Slams?

I wouldn't play doubles at grand slams either if I were federer... he has to concetrate on the singles and that is tough enough... he doesn't need more to think of and also it would be a big physical strain to do both...

I just looked at the doubles draw. Theoretically we could have a Federer/Allegro vs. Nadal/Lopez final.
