Not bad for their second outing, huh? :)

Is this Robredo's first doubles title?

Yep, in fact he only played 1 doubles final before (Barcelona 01)

Thanks for the info.

It's Nadal's second... as you know, but maybe somebody else didn't ;)

It'd be nice if he'd win a singles MATCH now. Drawing Schalken in round one of Auckland doesn't help.

Drawing Schalken does not mean that he doesn't have a good shot at winning. Schalken is always fragile, I think. But Rafael needs to be consistant.

Great job for Tommy and Rafael though! Winning the Chennai doubles title isn't necessarily a big accomplishment (looking at the players they defeated and how), but it will boost their self-esteem. Kerr/Thomas seem to be the only good doubles players out there, next to Erlich/Ram. Ugh!
What happened to the tandem Ferrero / Robredo?! They used to play really well together...

Tommy isn't very photogentic, it seems. Too bad.

They played together, but I'm not sure that I'd say they played "well" ;)

Well, Tommy doesn't play with juan Carlos cause Juan Carlos wanted to focus on his single results.

I'm also happy for them cause they'll have a bigger chnace to play Davis Cup one day if not in February.

Tommy going down early in singles isn't going to help their cause...

And for some reason I thought that Tommy stopped playing with Ferrero because he realized that Ferrero is a crap doubles player ;)
