    Doubt If

    "I doubt if there was anyone in tennis who felt Djokovic was capable of such outright dominance."

    The sentence sounds better to me without the "if." Is it really necessary?

    Thanks!

    Re: Doubt If

    "I doubt..."
    "I doubt if..."
    "I doubt that..."
    All of the above work for me.
