    Who watches it? What do you think of it? I love it! It's really exciting and the rallies can be great. The volleying is sharp and quick. It's a total change from singles, and at a time where serve and volleyers are rare, it's great to see quality volleying, and you get some fabulous lobs. The best partnership of my time was the Woodies (Woodbridge and Woodforde), winning about 5 wimbledon titles, and Todd Woodbridge is still playing with Bjorkman and has won Wimbledon with him. They showed the 3rd round match and parts of it were quality. I love watching the Woodies (well now only 1 woodie and the swede)

    i actually find that singles are more interesting to watch. maybe because im more familiar with the players and there is less to concentrate on!

    I think that many doubles players are doubles specialists, and don't often play singles. I mean they often have singles rankings, but their rankings are pretty low cos they don't often play. I guess Dokic plays both, but players like Woodbridge don't often play in the singles tournaments. I'm babbling now, so I'll shut up.

    No, singles specialists often turn their hands to doubles. Vice versa is rarer.
