Becy court pace this year, faster or slower?

Hi guys

I'd like to know how the central court is this year in comparison with the previous years?! about the pace and also the bounce?!
Have you heard any player has complained about the slowness of the court?

Thanks in advance

I don't know, but I will use this opportunity to say that the ATP site still says Paris is an outdoor hard event.

Re: Becy court pace this year, faster or slower?

Haven't heard any comparisons year to year. Llodra did compare it to Lyon though, had a moan about the speed ..... but then he always does that after losing.

It's not like it's hard to hold serve here either, there have been a pile of aces this week, and last year. It's one of those curious indoors courts where the court plays "fast" for servers, but "slow" for rallies (like Bangkok, and Metz the last couple of years). Totally different though, because other indoors courts that reward servers tend to be the low bounce variety like Rotterdam (which has absolutely identical service stats to Paris).

It's obviously an error, why are people still going on about this?

Re: Becy court pace this year, faster or slower?

it seems too slow, the net seems higher or the court is smaller. Very much difference from Basel

the rallies look too slow to my liking........slowness is a thing of beauty only on clay........the hardcourts should be either fast-low or med-fast-bouncy according to me........paris courts look slow and somewhat low.......rebound ace is my favorite hardcourt by the way........

the net is not higher and the court is not smaller either.......it's just the camera angle that's different.......

Yes, I think the camera angle causes the court seems even slower or at least increases the sensation of that.

Yeah - you get that whenever the typical bounce off the court appears to come towards the camera, so in 2D the ball seems to "stop" after hitting the court. For the same reason, a low+slow court like (eg Kuala Lumpur) can appear ridiculously fast with flat groundstrokes, because there seems to be a lot of movement.

Last year the players were saying this was now medium-speed, and it doesn't look to have changed.
