Adam Helfant's Vision for Tennis Complete: Every court is a clay court

The vision that Adam Helfant had for tennis is now complete. All courts are slow as heck. Hardcout is like clay. Everyone slides, you can't put a ball away. Thank you Adam for slowing down tennis. Now matches go 6 hours and people can't hit winners.

ATP has nothing to do with the Slams, next.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

That's a copout. You don't think the ATP has huge influence on the ITF, and they have a joint vision for the game? Not that it matters, strings and balls have made tennis into the grinding mugfest it is much more than surface imo.

Exactly. I mean this was a great match but what the hell. I mean what can you do if you can't hit a winner. My god.

There is a reason they broke away and no the ATP don't tell the ITF what surface speeds to use for the Slams.

Of course surface homogenisation has happened and been for years. I do remember the days when the court speeds had a greater differential and racquet and string technology.

Yes, they wanted to slow the game down and this is the result of it.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Why are you two so predictable?

You're not only petty hating losers, you are also boring as hell! Hey, I could write your posts, they're all really just a new version of the same whine!

Pathetic, have you no elegance whatever?
