Re: When will ATP speed up courts?

The courts around 2000-2002 were pretty good. Wimbledon wasn't dominated by servebots, but serve and volley was still a viable strategy and dirtballers still found it a struggle. Australian Open hadn't moved to Plexiclay. A lot of the HC tournements were quicker than they are now.

How I would fix tennis:

- Shorten the US spring hardcourts, and put them on similar surfaces to the summer HCs
- Bring forward the clay season a few weeks
- Have a longer grass court season between FO and SW19, including a grass Masters
- Bring back early 2000s surfaces and balls
