Hey :)

Just wondering who everyone's favourite established doubles team is. That means, players who often play together. The nine teams are all in the Top 10 of the Team Race as we speak.

Other interesting mentions:

Martin Damm & Radek Stepanek CZE / CZE
Frantisek Cermak & Leos Friedl CZE / CZE
Yves Allegro & Michael Kohlmann SUI / GER
Gaston Etlis & Martin Rodriguez ARG / ARG
Michael Llodra & Fabrice Santoro FRA / FRA
Xavier Malisse & Olivier Rochus BEL / BEL
Leander Paes & Nenad Zimonjic IND / SCG
Mariusz Fyrstenberg & Marcin Matkowski POL / POL
David Ferrer & Santiago Ventura ESP / ESP

And many more, of course ;)

Jonathan Erlich and Andy Ram (althought I still haven't quite forgiven them yet for that awful DC performance :mad: )

I voted for Jonathan Erlich & Andy Ram :D

I am a big fan of doubles, so I like a lot of different teams ;) I also really like Mariusz & Marcin, though they temporarily (?) split up :(

:woohoo: Yoni & Andy winning a poll :woohoo:

And yes, that performance was pitiful :(

It was even more pitiful being there to watch it live :o

Ok ok, I'll stop ranting now. I also really liked Haarhuis and Eltingh when they were playing as well as the Woodies. Kafelnikov & Vacek were also a great team to watch :D

I really liked Todd for whatever reason (don't anymore).. So I wasn't much of a Paul & Jacco supporter :(

I think Woodbridge is absolutely the best of all time, especially when he has his head in check. That being said, Jonas Bjorkman is my favorite current player and since I am also a Mirnyi fan, I will go for Bjorkman/Mirnyi.

ae wowww

Jordan Kerr / Jim Thomas
Jeff Coetzee / Chris Haggard
Jan-Michael Gambill / Graydon Oliver

Predictable. Like the Bryans...have seen them live and on TV. Can't say that about the others...so I'm in the dark.

Damn, I wish they'd show more doubles...but until I get TTC...it ain't happenin' here.

gotta be malisse rochus. cant belive they have a slam....

Oliver/Parrot would probably be my fav. They are playing together in Miami this week and I hope they get to play together more often. Jordan Kerr is a cutie patootie, he's just so squeezable and his laugh cracks me up. I also hope that Robby and Jan-Mike play together again this season. They had some decent results in San Jose and Memphis.

agreed :D....thats until karlovic and rochus become a doubles team :p

Kat!
03-22-2005, 10:59 AM
- Malisse/Rochus
- Llodra/Santoro

well.. they're my fav "current-established" teams anyway....

I voted for Jonas Björkman SWE & Max Mirnyi BLR
but I also like Wayne Arthurs AUS & Paul Hanley AUS
verymuch. :)

the best for me would be still Björkman / Woodbridge!!

Tinne
03-22-2005, 11:38 AM
Mike and Bob of course! ;)

I'll give Aspelin/Perry the vote because Bjorkman/Mirnyi will get plenty and I LOVE that Simon is eventually getting some well deserved success. I've been a fan for quite a few years now. Also, while I love Jonas I have never really been a big fan of Max so their partnership is very weird to me.

Fergie
03-22-2005, 01:21 PM
Massu/Gonzalez and Ancic/Ljubicic ;)

And there I was thinking the Bryans were disliked by plenty.. Guess they are loved by quite a few posters too ;)

the bryans followed by knowles/nestor :) I liked woodbridge/bjorkman and it's a shame they broke up :(

i'll go for the Björk-man. he's such a good guy.

Ljubicic/Ancic.

03-23-2005, 03:39 AM
i voted Knowles (caribbean :hearts: ) and Nestor but a close second for me are Asperlin and Perry. very nice duo. once Perry loses some of his tendency to become anxious, they're gonna be a force to reckon with on the tour IMO

Roger-No.1
03-23-2005, 03:41 AM

Hmm... would Mirnyi/Bjorkman count as an "established team?" Mirnyi's kind of had partners all over the place, he's only been with Bjorkman for a couple of tournaments this year, before he was with someone else.

novanora
03-23-2005, 03:24 PM
Daniel/Mark :yeah:

I like Palmer/Vizner when they were partners last year, also Novak/Pala, prefer most Czech pairs. Also Julian Knowle is a doubles player i like very much, but seems he likes changing partner often.

Kristen
03-25-2005, 01:30 AM
I voted for Jonas/Max

BUT
I also adore Wayne/Kevin, Frantisek/Leos, Llodra/Santoro, Xavier/Oli, and of course... Simon & Todd P. Todd W does not even rate with me. I'm a fan of the old guys... Damm/Suk, Suk/Vizner etc :yeah:

Bryans by far, but I love my Flakes. :)

Yonge
03-25-2005, 05:04 AM
Mark and Dan are my favourites, but I'm a fan of lots of teams.

Many people are still sad about the Jonas/ Todd - Max/Mahesh switcharoo, but how about the Damm/Suk split? They were such a terrific team and it sucks they don't play together anymore. Damm/Stepanek is doing pretty well though.

Prizeidiot
03-25-2005, 05:37 AM
Probably Jonas/Max.... Todd/Mahesh is a close second. Yep, I'm one of those sad about the Jonas/Todd split. My two favourites.... :(

I have to say that although I have not seen them much, Xavier Malisse and Olivier Rochus are so much fun to watch and they seem to have a real joy out there. But I could be tainted because I love to watch Oliver play be it singles, doubles.

I like Bjorkman and Mirnyi of the more established fellows you have listed.

I wish I could like the Bryans- but the chest bumping just bugs and reminds me of drunken frat boys.

Yes... Does anyone know why they split up? It is kind of odd. Anyway, Suk / Vizner are a good team too :)

Have they split up for good or are theyjust taking a break? Some of the teams do that from time to time, for whatever reasons.

CooCooCachoo
03-27-2005, 09:59 AM
I don't know, but I don't think they'll come back as a team. They are in their final few years as doubles players. Moreover, they weren't exactly acknowledging the fact that the other player was there in Rotterdam; they were so ignoring each other.

ae wowww
03-27-2005, 10:46 AM
I wanna start a thread about why people prefer singles to doubles-then we can hear individuals' opinions/reasons.

03-27-2005, 11:16 AM
Gonzalez/Massu

Wayne and Paul and Simon and Todd

They're just so fun to watch and I like their attitude when they play together : they just seem to be having fun! :cool:

Like Mark Knowles very much, so I voted for Knowles/Nestor. Liked Mirnyi/Bhupathi and Woodbridge/Björkman but after they have changed partners... :rolleyes: Woodbridge/Bhupathi are not good enough IMO! They have lost early in many tournaments...

Chloe le Bopper
03-27-2005, 04:27 PM
I picked Knowles and Nestor... but I don't really see very much doubles. Only when I go to tournaments :shrug:

Whoa that sucks! Some heat going on between them, huh? Maybe their disastrous performance in Masters Cup has something to do with this....

And Davis Cup, right?

That is all I get too and it pisses me off :fiery:

ae wowww
03-28-2005, 10:04 AM
It's so ridiculous, the coverage people get. Being in Britain, I am one of the lucky ones (obviously it is possible to get more in the States, but pretty much only with TTC). Anyway, we get:

2 Davis Cup ties a year (2 doubles matches)
+ Wimbledon doubles coverage (only on interactive?)
+ Interactive, SOMETIMES USO/Aus O matches

I think this is it. I feel sorry for you guys that get less than this, obviously watching it live is better, but being able to like rewatch a video etc is also :yeah:

For me the best team is Robredo-Nadal they're both very good !! :yippee:

the Spanish doubles teams Feliciano Lopez/Fernando Verdasco and Nabredo Ditto! :yeah:

although I'm wondering what's the matter with those. :confused: Don't know about Fer/Feli, but Tommy said in an interview that at the moment he's not playing doubles (or singles, for that matter :awww: ) because of his shoulder, but that it's very likely he'll play with Rafa again when he has the chance :D

From the list,my favourite team is Bjorkman/Mirnyi :rocker: :rocker: but i love also Zimonjic/Paes and Nadal/Robredo or Nadal/Lopez
