A doubles forum?

Now, hear me out...
There are some of us that are really interested in the game of doubles.
Now, most of WTAWorld probably isn't, but I think that it would be nice to have a WTA Doubles Forum so that doubles fans can unite and discuss the game they love.
In GM, threads about doubles get lost far too easily... well, except for the Huber-Black&Petrova-Kuznetsova business but all results threads, polls, etc. are just lost in all the other GM stuff.
This might also popularize doubles - after all, that's what the WTA is after with this horrid third-set tiebreak no deuce business.

It's an idea that was probably already suggested and refused, but I'll take it up again. I think that it would be great.

Hantuchova/Sugiyama def. (1) Black/Huber 6-7(0) 6-3 7-6(10) saving SEVEN match points, down 2-5 in the third, and down 2-6 in the third set tiebreak in three hours

Ai Sugiyama. Jie Zheng. Zi Yan. Tamira Paszek.
Yaroslava Shvedova. Nuria&MariaJose. Yung-Jan Chan. Elena Vesnina. Flavia Pennetta.

Re: A doubles forum?

We're all so biased We want it because our favorites are good doubles player

But yeah, definitely, I think this forum could stand on its own two feet.

Hantuchova/Sugiyama def. (1) Black/Huber 6-7(0) 6-3 7-6(10) saving SEVEN match points, down 2-5 in the third, and down 2-6 in the third set tiebreak in three hours

Re: A doubles forum?

I don't really see the point I think doubles topics belong in GM

They do but they get to easily hidden from all the other stuff and they often go unnoticed...

Re: A doubles forum?

I agree with Martian. I see doubles threads in GM all the time, and they seem to do fine there.
