    World's top 8 dubs players

    Bryans - 33
    Mirnyi - 33
    Nestor - 39
    Paes - 38
    Lindstedt - 35
    Llodra - 31
    Zimonjic - 35

    I had no idea Nenad was 35. I thought he was much younger.

    My guess is that doubles play has not improved, unlike singles. Younger players don't volley well, and the older players, who grew up playing in the S&V nineties, are superior volleyers.

    Although the fact the FT dubs players got crushed by Nadal and Lopez and Quisner has to be pretty embarrassing.

    Unless you are the Bryans, you don't come on tour looking to be a doubles specialist.

    IW purse was 1 mil for the singles winner and 120K for each doubles winner. That should answer this thread.
