What Is Mixed Doubles Tennis?
Mixed doubles is a type doubles tennis match that consists of one male and one female playing on each team. In the professional tennis world, mixed doubles is a type of match that players do not take as seriously because there are not any ranking points tied to the match so they do not have as much incentive as a ranked competition.
Mixed doubles is also rare to see in the professional tennis world as the male and female tennis circuits do not often have time to play together. Because of this, top players are rare to see on the mixed doubles court but when they do play together top players tend to bring out the best in their teammates. The prize pool is relatively small for winning the Wimbledon mixed doubles tournament and players do not have to register until just before the tournament showing that there is significantly less pressure and expectation when playing in these types of tournaments at the professional level.
