If you do watch the match you'll note that the team that wins does so because of the female teammate who plays well in almost all "important" points.
The other nice thing about this match is how happy both teams seemed throughout the match even when one player was headhunted and beaned in the groin he still had a smile on his face through the match.
I wonder why they don't show mixed on ESPN/ESPN2..
Is it because it isn't as popular as Doubles and singles?
