US Open slightly slower. But both are faster than Canada, which is in turn faster than IW/Miami.


Cincy > US Open >> Canada >> Miami > IW

(> slightly faster, >> appreciably faster)


Or more accurately,

Cincy > US Open >> (Montreal > Toronto) >> Miami > IW

In order from slowest to fastest courts.
IW/Miami >>> Toronto >>> US Open >>> Cincinnati.

No way. Miami (and IW) are slower than some of the clay courts.

Cincinnatti is obviously the fastest seeing as its the only one where Nadal has yet to reach the final

If Nadal keeps on playing on hard courts I doubt many people will complain? Why? His legs will snap.

The U.S Open employs a lighter ball that moves more quickly through the air, which decreases the likelihood of the balls fluffing up.

It's the truth. Did you not see the face on Nadal last year in USO 2007 when he bowed out? He should stick to clay. (and grass)

This is Nadal's moment in the sun; he has the right to chase down as many balls as he would like, the day of judgment shall come once the miles accumulated throughout the course of his career finally lead to him being taken out of a stadium on a stretcher, which is quite a plausible scenario on hard courts.

Re: what is the difference between the Cicny courts and those at the us open

Not everything is about the pace. There are other factors that are just as important: weather conditions, type of ball used, elevation or not, height of a bounce, court traction (even hardcourts differ A LOT), etc.
