I read in an article in the Daily telegraph(London) that Madrid had pulled out the doubles because there was a suit by players against the ATp for the new doubles rules. I think the ATP stinks for tampering with doubles.
Good that they are putting the doubles on! The whole deal was just ridiculous! Plus I would freak if I had tickets and there would be no doubles!
But fun message to the doubles players... "well, we don't really want you here, but we have to tolerate it because the atp is making us..." The players must really be looking forward to going there... stinkin' Madrid officials
