McNally/Osuigwe won G18 doubles, and M even has Jr. Slams experience.
Noel, excellent court vision and skill, G16 ISC finalist.
Beck/Navarro won EB doubles last year, beating Baptiste doubles on the way.
And Beck was phenomenal with Goulak against Chen/Liu this tournament.
Gallagher won G16 doubles with Taggart.
Stearns is also an excellent doubles player, as shown in her matches at ISC and such.
Graham also did very well, at NPB and EB.
Hrastar/Crawley won EB G14 doubles last year.
ABC, G16 3rd place with Pursell.
Stein, NPB finalist with Graham.
Kiss was quite impressive against Ewing/Stearns and Johnson/Li.

Really, usually all top singles players are also good in doubles.
Just look at the class of 2018. Top 2 Liu and Douglas, excellent at EB.
Don't have to mention Neel and Shibahara again, do I.
Hardebeck is an exceptional case lol, not the norm(even she was NCAA #3 doubles team with Dillon).

So, that 4 singles 2 doubles format is another insiduous plan to degrade doubles even further; because those elites will invariably have to choose to play singles. Doubles will be for 'Leftovers', weaker players.
