MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

IW Dubs – Saturday, March 9, 2024 final results

INDIAN WELLS – A lot of the doubles has been pushed back for the last few days, as they scrambled to catch up on singles after back-to-back nights of rain delays.

And so only now are the Cana-Kiwi team of Gabriela Dabrowski and Erin Routliffe finally getting on court for their first round.

Beatriz Haddad Maia and Taylor Townsend are on too, as are Chris Eubanks and Ben Shelton.

The men’s doubles draw aren’t anything like what they have been some years, with a host of top singles players taking part.

But there’s still some good dubs. And Jannik Sinner is playing, a rare appearance these days. Perhaps auditioning Sonego as a potential Olympics partner?

(Indian Wells is three hours behind ET)
