Re: Why are the Cincy courts faster?

I'm not sure what exactly it is exactly in Cincinnati, but can tweak the speed of a hardcourt a lot. For example just what and how many layers of paint you are going to apply. Or in what direction the paint is applied, horizontally or vertically. Underground, exact composition, the hardening itself of the court.

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Less sand in the decoturf used at Cincinnati. The heat also speeds it up some.

Re: Why are the Cincy courts faster?

I think terms like "Decoturf" or "Taraflex" are simply brand names for several different tennis surface offered by a single company -- in many cases the same brand name is used for surfaces ranging from slow to fast.


TT Singles 2012: W: Winston-Salem SF: Honolulu CH, Rotterdam, Memphis, 's-Hertogenbosch, Wimbledon, Beijing, Vienna QF: Barcelona, Nice, Bastad, Petange CH, Bangkok R16: Monte Carlo, Madrid
TT Doubles 2012: W: Caloundra CH (with kingroger), Acapulco (with keqtqiadv) F: Beijing (with KittyTennis) SF: Sydney (with Belludal), Memphis (with Belludal), Guadalajara CH (with kingroger), Wimbledon (with RHB1993) QF: Barcelona (with extremaduratenis), Cincinnati (with stbanchile)

Decoturf and Plexicushion are from the same company, but Taraflex is from a different one.
