. Somehow I think all those double participation probably got something to do with Davis Cup, not that he'll ever be picked to play DC double, but still.
I think his net game has improved greatly, he's looking to finish points at the net more often and gets to the net with more confident, which is a good thing. The problem though with double is that he just seems not sure of his positioning. And of course in double, he's at the net against the other guy who's also at the net already ready to pass him, unlike in single that he usually got control of the point first by forcing the other guy back with little room to pass. But anyway, playing double is all good, and just maybe one of these days we will get to see his double match. Couple of years ago in Montreal, he played with Chardy and they put them on center court probably bcos they are 2 Frenchies. Sadly it was last match of the day and the stream was cut off when all single matches were over. But anyway, we can still hope.
