Just how dull is doubles to watch?
...as dishwater?
...as watching paint dry?
...as watching paint dry while doing the dishes?
...as watching the contestants of Big Brother 9 watching paint dry while doing the dishes?
Are you mad? Doubles tennis is the very essence of tension, excitement and seat-wetting breathless anticipation at every point!  I pity the fool who disagrees!

Doubles is the worst part of tennis, even worse than women's tennis and that's saying something! People always complain when Murray's doubles matches are not aired on TV but I totally appreciate why they aren't, boring as hell!

Doubles is totally different compared to singles in terms of tactics. It can very intersting to watch with some great touch and net play. At times thought it can get a bit boring to watch.

Great to play, dull to watch (Nomad, Elly & Sanger, 2009).  Others disagree (Allan, 2009).

Incredibly. Everlasting rallies of 4 ping pong shots at the next. It may as well be a reflex test.

Nobody watches it lolz.

Poll added, Sir...  Remember, most of the marks come from showing your working, not from just guessing the correct answer!

Doubles takes away the one thing that for me makes tennis stand out - the complete reliance on yourself.  I'm just not a fan of team games.

I wonder why it is that many have voted doubles as exciting yet none have posted. I love watching doubles on TV. The strategy is so fascinating. Also, mixed doubles is quite a bit of fun to play. Wink

I love watching doubles its fast I love the net play. 

I am a serve and volley fan, modern back of the court slugging to and fro till one makes a mistake is extremely boring.
