    Default i play tennis as well as Ted does

    Hi everyone

    i know that we can say " i play tennis as well as her " or " i play tennis as well as she does" but what about names? can i say for example " i play tennis as well as Ted " or " i play tennis as well as Tod does"? are they both correct? when is it correct to use "does" and when isn't it correct?

    Yes, you can use names. You can say it with or without 'does' with he, she or a name.
