Imgaine how cool that would be. Either it will be the greatest thing since sliced bread, or there would be so much talent it would implode lol. What do you guys think?

It's so great and old.

They won a title together.

No. Roger doesn't want to catch Marat's oafness.

Didn't mean to sound negative, but indeed it would be very nice if they decided to play more doubles together. :)

Again, yeah, 2001 Gstaad was a one time thing, sadly, with them winning by default.

Mirka wouldn't allow it. Safin might introduce Roger to some of his friends.

Besides Hrbaty and Mirnyi, I just found Roger's played double with Norman, Ferreira, Bjorkman, Arthurs, Hewitt and Henman.

Roger seems to have good taste. All of them are capable doubles players too. :)

actually federer and hewitt were a regular doubles combo, i think it must have been around 1998 - played wimbledon together once as well

I really wish they would. They're my two faves and they really seem to respect each other a lot. I think it would be great. Roger plays doubles too inconsistently; I'm not saying he should always play doubles and push himself to exhaustion point but I really wish he would play some more doubles.

I noticed that he play with Yves A whenever he plays but Marat would be a great partner for him and I'm sure both their games would benefit, but maybe Roger wants to keep his secrets as far from Marat as possible.

Maybe we could suggest this on both their websites.

:cool: I would love to these two great players on the same court in person. I watched Massu and Gonazalez at the US Open(2004) and that was pretty cool.

I saw Rogi and Wayne beat Marat and Yevy and Rogi was so quick, the match was over in no time! He's amazing! It was a good-natured match!
