Why do so many good-skilled people play doubles? Only occasionally do I see people with good skills playing singles. Most of the time I saw people playing tennis with good skills, they are playing doubles. This is just the scence I see around my area in public courts. I played a few times doubles but I found it very boring. You don't run very much and it's easy to smash your partner with your stick. I don't find double game very exciting. I am just starting to play tennis and should be below 3.0. Maybe as my skills grow I will like doubles?
