sorry this should go to the former player section but guess more people looking at this board so here you go

Rafter was ranked 7 while walking away from the game at the end of 2001. A accompolished double player with Bjorkman

Henman play considerably less double but one of the best S&Ver along with Rafter.

Would a mid 30 Rafter and Henman form a top double team if they want to?

Why top single player choose to leave the game entirely without even considering double?
Martina N did retired from single in 1994 but return to wimbledon to play doubles in 1995

Mirnyi and Moodie leave single and choose to play double exclusively during early 30

Edit: Moodie high ranked at only 57? I thought he would ranked much higher since he won the Japan open (a big one) in 2005

A solid Top 10 team. Even Rusedski and Henaman would make a decent doubles team, they should play Davis Cup doubles until we have someone better.

Henman's bottle would crash when it counted.
