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.
you must be right, i dont look at doubles much.
All we are give Geese a chance.
