Re: "Speed up the courts and general court speed Thread"
T-Doc you are a player fan and not one who cares about the sport. It's so damn obvious, if conditions weren't favouring Nadal then you would be the first to bitch and moan about. Heck, once Nadal retires you will disappear.
Tennis needs variety of gamestyles and surfaces. I lived through the times of the serve fests and even during those times rarely someone with an Isner game won anything major.
Anyone who didn't watch tennis before Nadal and Djokovic probably 78% of the board don't have a reference point to what happened before they came on tour. Got to understand the previous history before which lead to the current situation we have and why it won't change in a hurry.
Now the game is at a point where speeding up the faster surfaces is viable to give some variety. No, it doesn't mean ice rink quick and any changes will take 4-5 years to be noticeable, just like when they homogenised everything.
“ 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.
