    Why is that they dont broadcast any of the doubles matches. Leave alone early rounds...even the semis or finals are not shown on TV.

    Even though I love to watch and play singles, I've always wanted to see how doubles is played at the pro level.

    Any ideas anybody?

    Can I buy/rent doubles matches from someplace?

    check out torrent sites like www.desitorrents.com and do a request under Sports.

    ask people on there to record doubles matches - i know they are shown here in Sydney on TV. Molik/Kusnetsova and Navratilova/Hantuchova was on today, great game, even though i dont watch much doubles.

    trust me, all over australia there is plenty of coverage of doubles games.

    I wanted to see the Bryans match today but all they showed was lame ass serena match and the boring after the 3rd set match of roddick and hewit. Doubles mathes are soo much more fun to watch I think coz its soo much faster than singles.

    Our newspaper said that doubles would follow the singles last night, but sure enough, ESPN 2 cut off tennis after the singles ceremony and showed a movie.

    I was also bummed about the lack of doubles shown on the tube! I love doubles and a lot of us play doubles. A tragedy!
