Confirmed: AO courts are slower than ass

AO courts are definitely slower than ass.
The womens matches are going to be unbearable to watch.

The close up of the main court just shown on ESPN is the grainiest thing i have ever seen.

Looks like a blue sand beach

Re: Confirmed: AO courts are slower than ass

It's difficult to determine the speed of a court from watching a Roddick rally because he can make ice look slow.

I guess Roddick must be the greatest player to ever play the game.

Brad Gilbert said Nadal would benefit from a faster court.

I think Nadal would prefer a court slightly faster than this one, but more than anything, one that takes topspin better.

Yea I had him in mind when I said that, he's getting nice sidespin on his slices, and the fucker keeps hitting backhands down the line
