Huey is playing with Janowicz. What happened to Inglot?
Blake and Fish getting the WC is just wrong. Should have been Blake/Sock

Doubles Specialist Teams lose

Robert Lindstedt, Nenad Zimonjic, Mahesh Bhupathi, Daniel Nestor, Jonathan Erlich, Aisam Qureshi, Jean-Julien Rojer, Rohan Bopanna out of the contest in R1.


Bob Bryan, Mike Bryan, Mariusz Fyrstenberg, Marcin Matkowski, Max Mirnyi, Horia Tecau, Jurgen Melzer, Leander Paes, Marcel Granollers, Marc Lopez still in fray. But can't say what happens.

Mirnyi/Tecau retired so they're not "in fray". Fyrstenberg/Matkowski are in bad shape i predict them to lose against Benneteau/Gasquet. I see another title for the Bryans...

"Polish Power" seems to sound a bit sarcastic these days :mad:

To be honest, almost all doubles specialist are in terrible form this days, except for the Bryans and Granollers/López

The Bryans never won it.
I'm still going with them on this one.

Bryans against Kubot/Tipsy could be interesting.

Granollers is out of form lately :sad:

I hope Blake can pull another good doubles performence. I think it's good for his confidence. They (w/Fish) play Huey/Janowicz. They should take it

Janowicz and Huey to win the doubles title.

Re: Indian Wells 2013
 
Janowicz/Huey are sleepers to make the finals here, imo. The winner between them and Blake/Fish should have a very good chance. Both teams played exceptionally well the other day.

Blake and Fish just have polish. For Singles players, both guys have great hands at net, and it makes them especially effective against a lot of these green doubles teams trying two back formations (how they ate Lopez/Raonic up).

Janowicz/Huey are a freak pair. They remind me of something you'd see out of an anime like PoT or something. I can't even explain how much the two compliment eachother, but they put on a clinic against the Murray bros the other day. Big serving from Janowicz, crazy angles from Huey, adept volleys from both - plenty of stuff to awe at.

Re: Indian Wells 2013
 
Well Murray bros are really bad so that win doesn't mean anything. Blake is 9:1 in doubles this year and for sure there is more "chemistry" between him and Mardy. Of course it can go either way but I think Americans should take it. Also it's not like Huey is decent player.

What happened to LeadnerPaes/Jurgen Melzer pairing? Didn't they play? Bryans might win. Bruno/Peya might play them in finals.
