Should the ATP Eliminate Doubles Tennis?

Doubles tennis is the biggest joke on earth. If it were up to me I would eliminate it and stop wasting everyone's time. We have had this discussion several times over the last few weeks and enough is enough.

Doubles tennis is stupid because:


1) It was invented by fat out of shape people who don't have the stamina to play alone on one side of the court

2) Would you watch Boxing Doubles? Enough said...

3) Who the hell wants to wait an extra 25 minutes to see their favorite singles player come on the court because they have to finish a bullshit doubles match.

4) Who watches it? Nobody...stop wasting our time.

5) If you can't play singles, get a life or go play another sport.

6) Doubles should be played in recreational parks only...by senior citizens or fat people.


I apologize in advance if I offended anyone with these comments but they are the truth. I know all the little kids will run and bad rep but I don't give a shit. Doubles is the biggest waste of time and the ATP would be smart to get rid of it and possibly expand the size of some tournaments.

No, I love doubles. Some of the best matches I have seen in the last two years have been doubles matches. It's part of tennis. Keep it.

Why do people so often post really stupid shit and then proclaim it as the truth? Like, aren't there funnier way to start arguments and pose as a bad ass?

For me, it wouldn't be a problem at all, because I dislike doubles, but I certainly don't think they should just eliminate it just because I don't like it.

It doesn't waste anybody's time if you don't watch the doubles matches. This is the stupidest post I've seen today. It's not like they cancel singles matches to show doubles, and doubles are hardly ever on TV anyway.
If you don't play tennis then that explains everything, but if you do then shame on you.

No, they shouldn't , Doubles may get less attention than singles, but it's not a reason, it's a class of the game,an important one i think,..they should get some ideas to draw some attention,more popularity to it..this may help..

No, certainly not! What will happen to things like Davis Cup and Hopman Cup, I know it is ITF but I think ATP need to keep doubles!

Not really an option, unfortunately. Born a dickhead, always a dickhead.

Doubles is under-appreciated to say the least.

Having just watched 2 weeks of pro men's tennis I will say that I enjoyed watching the doubles more than the singles. To each his own. And with the rule changes, the ATP may just end up killing doubles all by its lonesome.

I love watching doubles. Unfortunately they only show wimbledon doubles here. I'm not a serious tennis player so i find that it's much more enjoyable to play doubles than singles.

More doubles on tv!!! That's (for a start...) what will make more ppl attracted to it not those stupid changes of rules which will only achieve to bring its death...

I wonder if the word 'wanker' or "flamin' mongrel" mean anything in Canada. No, we don't say the second one here (unless we are Alf Stewart).

Idiots, non-idiots... That's not me who should judge, but for sure it's the person who likes to provocate.

I enjoy watching singles game on TV, those players get far more attention. Why do they get it? Because someone above has decided doubles is not interesting and through ages it isn't promoted. People who get annoyed by doubles are most likely the ones who follow like sheeps the others clues. If they showed more doubles on TV I'd be satisfied because of the emotion. I'm not going to describe the game - just who has the doubts should come to a doubles match in any tournament, singles would never have such atmosphere.

Besides, I think the whole cycling should be cancelled. All the riders have asthma or heart-problems, at least that's what they say when they get caught on dope. They should go to hospital instead of climbing the mountains - big lol.

I agree on cycling, but only because I find it very boring :devil: But...there a lot of people who watch it, so I'll think again. OK, keep it :angel:

i think doubles is pretty good, it just needs ppl to promote it more, thats all. I mean doubles is nothing like singles, its not just for fat ppl if such fit players are playing it. It is a great kind of tennis, if watched and enjoyed, i certainly think elimination is out of the question.
