Yet more help for Nadal. Apparently it wasn't enough to give him an easy draw -they also had to change the conditions of the whole game.

the homogenization of the surfaces continues! If this is indeed true, a fed/nadal final would not be ideal.

Duh, this court is like sandpaper. They should swap balls with Roland Garros to make both tournaments more distinct with the pace of the surface.

Soon enough players will be hitting watermelons instead of tennis balls. Every year the balls are heavier and bigger.

They're making a joke of this sport. Every tournament, every match is exactly the same.

Just disgusting, abhorring.

There's always badminton, squash or racquetball for those who do not like Uncle Toni's regime. To the left...

What is the point in homogenizing the surfaces and making all the courts so slow? I can't imagine the state of tennis in ten or fifteen years when every kid coming up is a ball basher standing 5-10 feet behind the baseline or moonballing for 5 hours on courts slower than molasses
