Re: Best singles = Best doubles players?
I agree! But that's even worse on the ATP-tour. The doubles-tour seems to be a senior-tour. :-D
And once in a while Federer, Roddick, Nadal & Co play doubles with friends, for fun, to get some matches or whatever.
At least a few female players like Davenport, Clijsters, Hantuchova etc. took the doubles competition for serious.
But I am pretty sure, if all top singles players were forced to play doubles, Black & Huber could play on ITF-level! ;-)
*(I'm not saying players should be forced to play doubles though - IMO they could cancel the doubles competition at all)
