RE: Weeks 10 & 11 - ATP Masters 1000 - BNP Paribas Open - Indian Wells, CA, USA - doubles


L16:  Félix Auger-Aliassime & Denis Shapovalov (CAN/CAN) CR 958 (839+119) "defeated" Lucas Miedler (AUT) & Cameron Norrie CR 214 (43+171) by a walkover  cry

I guess Cam's win in the singles took more out of him than he expected it to!

No real surprise- singles is more important. They also didnt need to make him play both events in a day. It wasnt one side at a time in the doubles.

I was rooting for Dan and John Peers, wanted Dan to get the win so much. It was fun to watch anyway, great play at times.

But if they played the match today FAA would have had two matches in one day.

Lloyd wins easily, Neal gets a walkover, presumably as a Tiafoe is still in singles

Only seeded pairs in last 8. Neal plays Jamie next. Lloyd maybe awaits in the last 4.

another win for Jamie and he is back to around LR of 24. Getting there. Neal/Wes v Jamie/Venus will be interesting.

Lloyd and Harri arent seeing any rankings boost this week, gap to places above them is large in terms of points, but closing the gap this week will help get them there.

Lets hope one of the 3 Brits left can get the title this week

 Singles players going further in the singles draw than they may have expected

 That's what I thought, we often see this.  It's not good enough as they are taking the places of doubles 'specialists' who could do with the money.  Multi millionaire singles players like Wawrinka etc don't need the money. Maybe  the answer to the problem is to not pay doubles prize money (and no points) if they pull out and then play singles.    All these withdrawals make a mockery of the draw, it has to stop.

 Yes, I was thinking the same re doubles points and prize money.

I do in general rather like very good singles players playing in the doubles. But there should be some consequences for such withdrawals - I'm sure they would survive these ones but it might help a bit.

Just Neal survived to the semis - he and Wes won their match with Jamie and Michael Venus in straight
Sets.

Lloyd and Harri lost in a MTB.
