    Well, I love doubles. To watch and to play. I agree with Sally and James.
    Andy. Rafa. Milos. What's not to like?

    I like to watch doubles and I agree that I think it has helped Andy to some degree. Love that he & Jamie get to play and enjoy it so much. However, I don't think I would have time to keep up with FTM for all doubles as well. I am OK with including doubles that Andy is participating in, like we do now, as they are few and far between. I think Andy & Jamie's FTM's should be kept separate, so we have the choice.

    I agree with Sally, talk and decide during off season. Poll maybe.

    I think have Andy and Jamie separate because Jamie play much more often than Andy and I don't want people be put off Andy FTM having to predict all time with no week break in betweens some of tournaments.

    I think including doubles may be too big a commitment for some (me included) as it will mean FTM most weeks with no break. Having said that I would love for there to be more focus on doubles as it is so much fun I for one would love to be as 'second rate' as Colin, Ross or Jamie

    the ftms must be kept seperate imo. one for andy and one for doubles. having andys doubles matches included in ftm is strenuous enough!
