    Yes, that was great! Fortunately I could watch that whole match.

    Feds should indeed play doubles more often - preferably with Nads on the same side of the net. LOL.

    Wow... all 4 of these guys should play doubles more! All are excellent players :)

    Nadal/Moya in straight sets!

    I'd love to get ahold of this match on DVD... excellent shotmaking from both teams.

    Yeah, that was an unbelievable shot and Nadal just had to smile at it.
    You can well see that all four of them are enjoying that match.

    Typical doubles match between singles players.

    It would be rather negligent, not to mention downright painful to play with Nads on the other side of the net...

    After seeing Nadal play at the net so much(and so good) and play two-three shot points, I feel like this vid is from a parallel universe:)

    Oh,and Federer's volleys are sweet,especially the 4:42 one.

    Looking at Nadal at net, maybe he can adapt an aggressive style. And it's interesting, Federer and Wawrinka are switched from their Olympics position if I'm not mistaken (Federer played the deuce side and Wawrinka the ad side, that makes more sense since Wawrinka has the more solid backhand, and Federer obviously the forehand)

    4:38 is one of my favourite Federer shots of all time.

    This from baseline-bashers of the weak era, who "suck" at net. ;)

    Nadal's stop-volleys would make Johnny Mac green with envy.

    Nadal and Moya won this one 6-4, 7-6(5)

    Nadal and Federer also played doubles against each other in 2004 in Indian Wells (their first ever official ATP match together, actually). Nadal partnered Robredo and Federer partnered Allegro.

    Nadal/Robredo won 5-7, 6-4, 6-3

    So.. Nadal leads Federer 2-0 in the doubles H2H?
    ..

    Ok, I'm just going to go hide behind a rock while their doubles H2H is discussed, then analyzed, then scrutinized for 20 pages until eventually a flame war breaks out...

    My apologies :)

    nice clip. :)

    The fed shot that made nadal smile was real good ! Some good volleys from him

    Nadal displaying some great touch as well

    Moya, the most experienced one also played well.

    Wawrinka though was still a little inexperienced and it showed

    Federer should try to go for a calender slam in doubles.

    Nope, it hasn't happened yet. But I wouldn't be surprised if, one day, when neither of the two are under the pressure of keeping up their top rankings in the singles anymore, it may happen. Nadal has asked Federer a couple of times already, something has to give in the long run. :)
