Second Serve


One of the many awesome things about the ATP’s year-end championships in London is the fact that doubles gets its chance to take center stage twice a day at the O2 Arena.

Back-burnered at Grand Slams and tour-level events on side courts without television or even livestreams, the doubles get television time and main stadium time all week long in London, and it finally gives fans a chance to see just how wildly entertaining the game can be.

Case in point: this rapid-fire, seemingly never-ending ricochet exchange between Alexander Peya/ Bruno Soares and Jean-Julien Roger/ Horia Tecau (see riveting video above). Third-seeded Peya/Soares took the match, 6-3, 3-6, 12-10, but Tecau and Roger got the better of this rambunctious point.

If you’re a fan of the art of volleying, quick reflexes and the lost art of net play, then we highly recommend you take in some doubles this week. You’ll get to see the best in the world, on one of the biggest courts in the world, playing for one of the biggest prizes in all of tennis.
