Couldn't agree more.
The points are short; serve and net play are more important than groundstrokes. Allows folks who may not be in the greatest of shape to still enjoy the game, keep their net skills sharp, but its no where as enjoyable to watch as a one on one matchup.
There is really no point construction in doubles. Its more about playing patterns - keep the ball crosscourt on groundies (away from the guy at the net), serve big and poach, volley /hit the ball between the two players and choke off angles.
