    Hi Voo de Mar,

    Thanks for your cool statistical summary… Here’s another stats especially in double.
    A double “0” for 2011:
    ————————-
    Buenos Aires-250, 1st round, Oliver Marach/Leonardo Mayer d. Rui Machado/ Albert Ramos-Vinolas 6/0 6/0

    And … The longest tie-break in double this year :
    ——————————————————–
    Paris (I)-Masters 1000, 2nd round, Max Mirnyi/ Daniel Nestor d. Frantisek Cermak/ Filip Polasek 6/1 7/6(15)

    And at last, the next month, the Bryans brothers will become the new recordmen for #1 place in double with more of 270 weeks in double ranking (John McEnroe is again for few weeks the best #1 in double ranking)… To be continued! :)

    Good day!
