Do we even have a schedule? When are they supposed to be on court?

Towser83 02-12-2013 03:11 PM

that's great. I would love to see that.

Cool! When these kind of single players pair up it makes doubles much and much more interesting for me as I don't know a lot of doubles players that well.

That's great to see, Nalbandian's variety paired up with Nadal's doggedness.

..wasn't it always like that? Or maybe not always, but for as long as I can remember, so for the last couple of years.

Only at the grand slams do they play a real 3 set match. No idea what happens at the Olympics.

Maybe it's because they want the doubles to be a fast and exciting match. Doubles isn't as popular as singles and I don't think people are willing to watch and enjoy a long doubles match as much as they would like to see a long Nadal-Djokovic match for example. Nobody would like a 5 hour doubles final in a grand slam.

Wow, his knee is killing him so much, he has to play both doubles and singles

Sorana fan 02-13-2013 05:47 AM

Today against Zeballos again...

you must be right, i dont look at doubles much.

Spin of Nadal with Nalbandians incredible angle shots and down the lines. They should play togeteher more often. Would be fun to watch as a nice contrast to the usually double team's robotic, power game.

Seth 02-13-2013 05:21 PM

Looks like Nalbandian/Rafa gave their opponent a walkover. Nalbandian went three sets today, so maybe he wanted to bank energy for singles.

Mike Sams 02-13-2013 08:02 PM

Nalbandian backhand + Nadal forehand = Destroyer!!! :shock:

rommil 02-13-2013 10:03 PM

Rafa better not double fault or Nalby will kick him on the hoffitis:)
