So a statement was made in another thread about nadal winning a doubles slam..and this lead me to speculate. Are any of the top tier doubles players that good. If Federer and Wawrinka could waltz into the Olympics with little to no doubles experience and take out the Bryan Brothers who are considered one of the top tier doubles teams do you think it is possible? Then again this was also the olympics, but then they are American and take a lot of pride in medals. Its just players have proved they can dominate both, McEnroe, Hingis, Williams, Navratilova, Court, Laver, Rosewell, Emerson, Edberg...the list goes on. But when all of these players showed up to play doubles they showed they could beat the "doubles specialist". Yes teams like the Woodies I will admit and Gigi Fernandez/Natasha Zvereva were truly great doubles teams..but I think it is all possible for two power singles players to dominate doubles. I mean if Federer and Nadal teamed up to play doubles, and willingly worked with each other do you think they would be easily stopped? If in 2006 that happened would they be stopped? It's just why can singles players waltz into doubles and easily take home a title within a few tournaments but doubles players get wrecked in singles. A top doubles player is skilled from both the baseline and net? So what is stopping it? I know more singles players will not play doubles, because of the ammount of pressure it puts on them, but heck I aint impressed with these double specialist. If the Williams Sisters can just walk into a grandslam and half ass their way to a wimbledon's double title...sorry I just am not impressed. So after all that do you guys feel if top tier singles players played doubles they would reap success? Who would best be suited for this?
