Re: Speed up the Courts

I've been to IW and Miami, and the climate definitely plays a part. I think in regards to surface, IW is the slowest, and Miami is also pretty slow, but a bit quicker than IW.

But, Miami's high humidity causes the ball to slow down. Also, it is usually windy down here, year round, and thus the players are less apt to go for big shots. So to the TV viewer, the court may seem even slower than usual.
