Do you think the game play would be different now if they switched back to carpet on the indoor season?

(Honest questions, as I barely followed the tour back then.)
I think it would encourage attacking tennis. But in the course of a year there would be little change in the game play. At the very least it would force players to adapt and diversify the calendar, providing a oppounity for attacking players to gain points.

Typical antics all came out in this match: faking injuries, grimacing and cursing, trying to peg Fed, trying to start drama, undeserved final based on an exhausted old man and a joke draw.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....
