New Doubles Rules

With the new doubles rules suppose to get people more interest in doubles. Basically it is no advantage ie next point win from Deuce
No 3rd set super tie breaker upto 10 points instead

I thought those Rules only applied to ATP Tour, NOT the WTA Tour.

in ATP tour I'm against it

Quel prix de mon amour! Il craint des pleurs qu'il m'oblige à répandre . Insensible au feu le plus tendre dont un coeur ait brûlé jamais , quand mes soupirs ne peuvent suspendre l'injustice de ses projets . Il fuit pour ne les pas entendre.

Doubles IMO is entretaining to watch, but Tennis Powers (ATP - WTA) instead of promoting it, (and to think of a way to make singles stars to play it and TV to broadcast it). They always act like doubles is a problem they have to live with.
Totally against the change in rules.

Doubles is quite popular among WTA Tour players. If you check out the doubles rankings, you'll see most top players in them. And players like Mauresmo are adventuring into doubles next year, so I don't think we'll see changes in the near future.

Suck

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

im all for it...doubles may be popular among the hardcore fans, but the average tennis fan doesn't care, ive never seen more empty seats at tennis events than i did during doubles...the tournaments should not be paying for an event that adds no revenue if they dont want to...ive always said if you think doubles is marketable, the doubles players should start their own tour and see if they can make any money...and its easy to say keep doubles the way it is cause its not our money....in a perfect world, it should be up to the tournaments to decide if they want to even have doubles, as opposed to being forced to have it, like they do now
