The top players don’t play much doubles anymore, but when they do it’s usually at Indian Wells. Byes in the draw, the day off between singles and the reliable weather all make doubles a good fit in the desert for the big names, and this year follows that trend.
Milos Raonic (with Nenad Zimonjic), Dominic Thiem (w/ Philipp Kohlschreiber), Richard Gasquet (Julien Benneteau), Isner/Sock and the Zverev Brothers are some of the teams signed up to play.
But the big surprise is Rafael Nadal entering the doubles with… Bernard Tomic!! Could there possibly be two more different players on the tour? And it begs the question, how did these two get together?
Without any real answer (yet), maybe it’s just a PR stunt and the two will never really play.
