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
I definitely would have preferred Gaba winning as he needs the points much more, but Jan would have beaten him anyway. I expect Hajek to destroy Machado, like 6-1 6-2.
