I know that doubles isn't the major draw card and they want a more predictable time for the doubles to finish so to get the singles started at a set time...

But why even have YEC Doubles if you are going to play a super tiebreak and that stupid 40/40 rule where it is a deciding point NOT duece...

^It's a good idea since they do it all year long except in the slams. So they are used to it. But I too would prefer if they played it out.

Yeah, the losing teams come all the way to Doha to play a match that lasts an hour or less :o

Sorry I wasnt really thinking... I was just annoyed...
However this response clearly demonstrats that something major need to be done to improve the profile of doubles...
I am a huge stosur/stubbs fan but maybe a williams win against them in the final (giving Williams'the YE No 1) wouldnt be a bad thing to raise the statue of Doubles (even if they only played like 6 tournament through out the year!!!

you only need see how many people turn up to watch the doubles at the YEC to see how important it is or relevant. yep the history books still add the names but anyone who knows tennis knows its a exo at best now.

Clearly that's not the case.

You're saying it as if people are turning up for the singles. :tape: Anyone who knows tennis AND actually watches doubles will see the intensity of the competition and the enormous effort that goes into it to know that it is definitely not an exo.

The format at the YEC disrepects doubles the most. Only four teams, only semis and finals. SHAMBLES.

Agreed. 3 matches for the whole tournament which is supposed to be the premier tour event of the year. :o :o :o There are exciting matches, but it should be at least 8 teams.

^Exactly, it's a joke that you get 1500 for winning 2 matches.

it says that the TOUR itself doesn't take doubles seriously.
