I've got a real problem with doubles this year. There is absolutely
no motivation for a team to play the doubles round if they are rated
much lower than the opposing doubles team. This rewards higher rated
teams and penalizes lower rated teams (as pointed out by Celeste).
This season's strategy: wait to see who the other doubles team is and
if we don't like the match-up I'll just send my extra players home.
Not much fun in my not-so-humble opinion.
