I know they have for Lindsay/Lisa's 1R match so I am sure it was just a mistake.

I don't like all this no-ad in doubles - spoils the tensions of saving break points. Also I hate the super set tiebreak - just play a third set - cos sometimes players could win due to pure luck.

They are using no AD system as usual.
I am sure that was a mistake.

I can't stand the super-tiebreak either (the no-ad thing is only slightly better). It's especially annoying when they play a second set tiebreak right before that, because it feels so repetitive. If they want to shorten the doubles matches so much, I say just go with single-set matches.

They can't really show No-AD on the "live scoring" at some tournaments, it doesn't register in the computer correctly so it just goes to show deuce > advantage > game.
I should try playing no-AD doubles...so much pressure!

I actually was a ball kid for that mtch and no AD scoring was used. :p

I've played competitive doubles matches where we have had 'long deuce, short deuce' rules played, which means that the first deuce will go to an advantage. If after the advantage it returns to deuce, then it becomes sudden death. I like that rule better between No Ad or Long and Short Deuce.
