Does anyone know how it supposed to play (i.e. similar to RG, fast like Rome, slow like Hamburg, etc)?
Well, if I was the organizer, I would bring the clay directly from RG
It's supossed to be fast due to altitude
, plus the fact that it's almost an "indoor clay" court should make it less bouncy.
Who cares, it's still red clay, so we can only wonder who will be the runner up each year.
Nadal career prediction: 6 RG, 2 Wimbledon, 1 Australian Open, 1 US Open
, 2 Master Cup, 20 Master Series
, 65 titles.
(Predicted before RG 2008 when he had 3xRG)
The inhabitants of the Balearic Islands are said to have been the inventors of slings, and to have managed them with surprising dexterity, owing to the manner of bringing up their children. The children were not allowed to have their food by their mothers till they had first struck it with their sling.
~Vegetius, De Re Militari, late 4th century
Nadal: the last Balearic Slinger, the ultimate product of natural selection. Feel the weight of the centuries in the Topspin from Hell!
