Bob and Mike are huge favorites, but the way Jack and Vasek have been playing(they've upset 3 seeded teams), you have to say they have a puncher's chance.
Not just 3 seeds teams, but 3 top 8 seeded teams. This is an unbelievable run :worship:Bob and Mike are huge favorites, but the way Jack and Vasek have been playing(they've upset 3 seeded teams), you have to say they have a puncher's chance.
If they win they qualify for the WTF even if they don't play a single match more together. (Unless some other team like them wins USO and ends up below 7th and above Posp/Sock in the rankings going into WTF). Nobody seems to remember this rule. It applies for singles also.If Sock and Pospisil win here they may want to think about teaming up some more...they'd be 9th in the WTF race with this being their only tournament. As it is they currently sit 16th.
Right..Even the scratch pairing is dangerous and Bob and Mike felt it in 2005 against Moody-Huss...But with the time Bob and Mike experienced enough to pull this through...Touch call IMOBob and Mike are huge favorites, but the way Jack and Vasek have been playing(they've upset 3 seeded teams), you have to say they have a puncher's chance.
Pratik you are really encyclopedia ..Hats off :worship::worship::worship:Last time it happened in each slam:
So overall, last time was USO 1992. 22 years ago. At Wimbledon, it was 31 years ago.
Vasek and Jack have been a breath of fresh air in this tournament and brilliant to watch. Just shows how singles players can play doubles better than most doubles specialists. Unfortunately I don't think they will have enough today and the Bryans will win in 4 setsPospisil and Sock has a chance as the Bryans struggle against first time pairings.
Exactly this. Let's not forget that Sock also has a Grand Slam title in (mixed) doubles.It has nothing to do with singles players being able to beat doubles teams when rhey team up and has everything to do with the fact that Vasek and Sock plays a style that is easily transferred to doubles, they are capable of playing that game.
Unlike when Nadal and Nole teamed up and lost to the 19 year old pair of Vasek and Milos like 3 or 4 years ago at Rogers cup
