mens doubles...best of 3 or 5?

I may be mistaken but in the past i thought that from the QF's on, the mens doubles was best of 5 sets.

Does anyone know if that is the case?

It's not the case anymore. The men play best-of-three in doubles now. They were even considering of making all doubles matches best-of-two-and-a-super-tie-break to encourage the top players to play, and to be more TV-friendly.
