So I was watching the tennis channel. And they did this rerun of the Washington D.C. event where Ernests Gulbis and Dimitry Tursunov played the number 1 ranked doubles team in the finals. What an epic, classic match-no doubt. A thriller of a 3 setter. Speculation had it though. Two decent ATP singles players playing with not a whole lot of doubles experience can and often times do beat seasoned all world doubles teams. Its an amazing thing. So take lets say a Jim Blake and an Oliver Rochus--tell them they are paired up and are playing doubles in the US. Open. Im picking blake and rochus -an unseeded team to make it to the finals. There they will play lets say the Byran Brothers. I really do see Blake and Rochus with no comradderie and not a whole lot of practice coming together and beating the Byrans. It just goes to show that raw talent beats teamwork.
