Lindstedt/Damm? I'll expect that pairing to disintegrate due to poor results rather soon.

I noticed you are not a big fan of Lindstedt. He has a huge serve and solid net game, not so bad at all. I don't think he is worse than Moodie for example.

Damm is getting considerably worse every year. Of course that is logical, as he's only getting older. In fact, I'm surprised to see he's continuing yet another year.

You are right that I am no fan of Lindstedt. I think he is a very mediocre doubles player, much like someone like Cibulec and Cermak (who I both do like, by the way) or Cerretani and only slightly better than Wassen. Lindstedt/Nieminen were an absolute joke as a team, if you ask me. I understand they are good friends, but I don't think any team was unhappy with their draw if they had to meet them in 1R.

And I disagree about your comparison of Lindstedt with Moodie. Moodie has much, much more potential as a doubles player. His serve certainly isn't any worse than Lindstedt's, and his volleys are way better. Both don't have much of a baseline game, so it's hard for me to say who is the better side there. Anyways, I've seen Moodie play great doubles tennis on numerous occasions, whereas I've only seen average stuff or worse from Lindstedt.

I saw Lindstedt (what a surprise, with Wassen) lose to Acasuso and his retired coach who entered as ALT team, and I think this sums up that player as well as your post lol.

I've also seen Lindstedt/Nieminen beating Nestor/Zimonjic in USO, maybe I've just seen his best matches.

Re: New teams 2009

People, can anyone tell me, is Mirnyi going to retire or still play in 2009? You think he'll still give it a shot with a steady partner?
It's not like things have worked out well for him this year.

Re: New teams 2009

btw The Ratiwatana's dropped to #100 and #101 and have to defend the Chennai title in January. As expected they suffered many first round defeats on ATP level. I always thought they were overachievers, when they were in the top 50.

They're Challenger level doubles specialists; absolutely nothing special. Lipsky/Martin are their opposite.

Re: New teams 2009

JMG, do you think Lindstedt has the potential to reach the TMS Cup? Cause Moodie just did that.

Re: New teams 2009

Yes, I also the the DC match vs Israel, and found him better than Aspelin.
