I think that's very unlikely - if you look at the rankings there's only one team (Scala/Siders) who have a joint ranking because they've never played with anyone else. Even the "regular" teams who have qualified for TMC (Melvins/Sylvester & Bubba08/Silverwhite) have separate rankings because they've occasionally played with someone else.
I like the top 16 qualifying as TT is quite different from ATP - a year can be a long time in MTF, people pop up and disappear. What happens if you play half the year with someone and are in a good position to qualify but then your partner suddenly disappears
I also don't like the idea of having to co-ordinate which events i play with someone especially when our singles rankings might be vastly different.
That's why I ended up voting the way I did, and why before I had a permanent partner (
Sheva) I was against it. We aren't professional tennis players. People go on vacations. Hell, we go to tennis tournaments. I wasn't around for Roland Garros this year because... well... I was at Roland Garros. I plan to go to Wimbledon next year. It wouldn't be fair to Sheva for me to expect him not to play just because I go away, and vice versa.
Don't worry partner, I am the queen of London Internet cafes...) Some people I know are too popular and like playing with a new person every week *cough* Adam *cough* TT is actually a spectacular way to make new friends on MTF. I mean, your partner could become a giant troll and get banned from the boards and you'd be screwed. It's different when doubles is a person's life and they have no other commitments in life, but we all do. We have work, we have family, we have lives off of MTF (well some of us) and sometimes other things will come before TT (believe it or not
