Doubles has gotten short shrift this tournament. Except for a few glances at the Bryans yesterday, the coverage, including DirecTV's five-court extravaganza, ignored doubles entirely as far as I could tell. The tournaments go on nonetheless. Peya and Kas, who both turned 31 just this month, reached the semifinals, a career-best Slam finish for both of them. I don't know if any of the doubles finals are scheduled for coverage this weekend.
