I think it's interesting that people with regular doubles partners who are voting for it to remain an individual race though
Or even if they don't have permanent partners now, they have in the past and still think it's okay.
It's hard to find someone whose style works with you to play doubles with. Some people play too safe, some too risky, some like to discuss picks, some like to just send separately, some like to be bossy and just tell their partner what to do, some who think doubles doesn't matter, some who would sacrifice their singles results for doubles if needed, etc. I think I have played with all these types of people
By the time you find someone after playing the field long enough half the season could be gone.
If it sounds like TT partnership like a relationship, I believe it is
And making WTF just for permanent pairs is like having a dinner party only for married couples and leaving all your single friends out just because they haven't had the luck to fall in love yet
More people in this game are single than have pairs, and I always try to make my TT decisions for what will negatively affect as few people as possible.
Anyway this vote is close, so everyone who thinks it should be a team race, just remember that your partner can dump you at any moment for someone younger and prettier than you
(kidding! sort of!) No one wants to be stuck in a loveless marriage
"for the kids"
for the WTF
