So for Mergea/Bopanna something like Murray/Nestor, followed by Pospisil/Sock and then Bryan/Bryan - and if they go through those, they still have to win the final.

How many Grand Slam titles are between those guys? 42 without counting the Bryans twice? :D

I think it's easier to win a GS than Washington title. In MS and GS tournaments you got 1 or 2 easier rounds, and when you get to the final phases some of the seeded players are out. In Wasinghton we have teams such as Pospisil/Sock, Peya/Soares, Murray/Peers, Cabal/Farah that are not seeds.
I think it's the strongest field that I have ever seen at a tournament. The advance cut was 48!

What a draw for Bopanna / Mergea :facepalm: . Hopefully the match will be streamed cause Fish / Dimitrov's will be it seems.

That's what happens when Rojer / Tecau withdraw because of tiredness (fatigue) -> bad luck , cause they would have been seeded 4th that way, with a better draw.

I guess players (doubles especially) wanna play alongside him once and who knows how many (other) chances would have Nestor got. :shrug:

Rojer for example sacrificed a place in the rankings for this, when he played in Munich with "Sir Andy"

Not really, I always said better single players would be better double players too, as long as they can play around the net and be able to play doubles.

I'd take for example a well trained Tsonga/Dimitrov, Murray/Berdych or Federer/Gasquet over any current doubles team in the world. :cool:

Btw, just found this, last point of the match:

Stellar performance by Mergea from the half of the 2nd set. Another 2 commentators that he made wonder where he was all those years :lol:

And here's a Video with some of that (that is not my channel by the way) :
