The doubles draw is out! I heard people discussing all day, so I didn't expect it to be out so soon, but here it is:

Bhupathi/Mirnyi
Kohlmann/Schüttler

Hemmes Jr./Van Scheppingen
Erlich/Ram

Black/Ullyett
Corretja/Costa

Clément/Robredo
Nieminen/Pavel (OK Seriously, I've just got to see this match!)

Hanley/Stepanek
Cibulec/Pala

Sargsian/Zimonjic
Palmer/Vizner

Hewitt/Rasheed
Sluiter/Verkerk (Who is this Rasheed guy?? Didn't see him today, I think. Or wait, maybe I did. Some Asian guy.. but not Indian? Oh well..)

Björkman/Johansson
Damm/Suk (Another interesting match)

Gooooooo Clément / Robredo or Nieminen / Pavel!

LOL!
Rasheed and Hewitt would be very interesting, isn't rasheed around 40?
Maybe Hewitt will be playing for 2 people and Rasheed will be sitting court side giving Hewitt advice like in Davis Cup

By the way, Kohlmann/Schüttler is a surprise package too, since Michael Kohlmann usually tries to qualify for singles events as well, and he didn't know. Does this mean that Michael is aiming at a doubles career solely?

Also, besides the already questioned absence of Wayne Arthurs and Todd Woodbridge, where is Roger Federer? He always plays doubles in Rotterdam and he has won two doubles titles here already.. One with Mirnyi too, so that would've been a good match..

Yeah, Roger Rasheed is Lleyton's coach...I saw them playing an exhibition doubles together here at the Hopman Cup last month when Alicia Molik had to pull out...they weren't too bad actually hehe

Rasheed was a great doubles player in his time, and Hewitt did win the U.S. Open doubles in 2000, so their pairing is actually a good one. I only wonder who will be the leader-the coach, or the player.

Kohlmann/Schuettler upset the top seeds Mirnyi/Bhupathi and next play Ram/Erlich. A preview to Davis cup??

Rasheed is only about to turn 35 .. He is not that old and can probably still play some decent tennis.
