There will be no ad scoring and a super tiebreak instead of a third set in doubles at Indian Wells and Miami next year, the two biggest events outside of the Slams. I still think the top doubles players should announce a boycott of the events immediately.

That's bad news.

I really don't like it either, but I can't see the tour grinding to a halt if Cara Black refuses to show up.

Really :eek:
I don't like the idea and neither do the actual full time doubles players on the ATP tour

Out of curiosity, did this scoring experiment actually help men's doubles at all?

But if Lisa Raymond, Samantha Stosur, Cara Black, Rennae Stubbs and other Top 10 players refused to play it should be worth something.

Why can't they make the main draw smaller, and the qualifying draw bigger and just do it in qualifying?
