    Looking at the doubles draw in Rome I was surprised to see this 1st round match:

    Federer/Wawrinka-Nadal/Moyá

    I know the result of this match is meaningless but it would be entertaining to see. Unfortunately doubles matches don´t get the attention from TV channels. Is this the first time they face each other in doubles?
    Who will win the match in your opinion?

    I think Nadal/Moya will win.I thought Nadal wouldnt be that good a dubs player,but he proved me wrong by getting to the barcelona final w/Salva-Vidal. Also Nadal and Moya are both clay court specialists so i think generally the match is swinging in their favour.

    Thats gonna be a sick match. The best clay courter on one team and the 2nd best on the other. Really hope they show this one on ESPN2, or any match in Rome.

    none of your damn business
    I'm not sure if Star Sports will show all the matches but maybe TTC will since Federer and Nadal has a good chance to meet in a few days
    TTC will show matches every day starting monday morning at 6:54am for those who don't have Eurosport(if ES is showing them):D

    I honoustly think that that is going to be a pretty easy match for Federer and Wawrinka.

    I think it will be an easy match for Nadal and Moya (sorry Jelle v lol)

    Nadal is a fantastic doubles player, he used to play pretty regularlly if i remember correctly and he's won some monumental matches in Davis Cup.

    We will indeed!

    I don't like Nadal so I would love it if Federer could win but when I look at it without my bias towards Federer i'd have to fancy Nadal.

    I would hope that Nadal and Moya could win this one. At the present time Wawrinka is just a pretender on the court with those three.

    Wawrinka is just coming back from a serious injury. I don't think they'll have much of a chance against Nadal/Moya, but I would love to watch the match nontheless.

    I wouldn't hold my breath as I doubt ESPN2 will be showing ANY matches from Rome. :-(

    You thing Wawrinka is on par with Moya, Fed and Nadal?!?:confused: 2 world number ones and the king of clay? You must be new to tennis.

    mate i'm not new 2 tennis and i get coached by Nadal's old coach but don't diss Wawrinka, he's not as bad as you think. And...doubles is a completely different game to singles

    Nadal & Moya look like twins wearing the same outfits.

    Federer will never beat Rafa on clay. Seriously. His clay streak is getting really ridiculous right now.
