Re: Speed up the Courts

I have answered this so many times, some people actually fathom what happened initially for the change that happened. The ones that don't either don't have a clue or want to be ignorant.

They use a lighter ball on clay, and a heavier one on the faster surfaces, this helps as well as quickening the clay as much as they can with a natural surface. Carpet doesn't exist as a surface now besides a few challengers.

Yes, they could speed the faster surfaces up a bit, of course it won't be like it was and nor it should be.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1
