best of 3.a men's doubles quarter-finals just finished and they won in 2 sets.5 sets is just too long and they wont get many big names in the draw

It's best-of-3 all rounds including the final. This holds true for the Aus. Open, French Open, and U.S. Open. It used to be best-of-5 but it changed a couple of years ago, I think.

Only Wimbledon is still best-of-5 all rounds.
