Can't really get it yet.

No wind? Ok, but is equal to both players. And i think it shouldnt be a mind-change factor.

Sound? C'mon, really?

The surface, that is normally very fast in this type of stadiums. Yes, could be, but some players dont play good tennis in outside courts.

So, it's more a mental perception than a real thing?

Affects them differently though. Wind hurts more those with:

a dependence on serve
taller ball toss on serve
longer backswing on groundstrokes (less time to adapt to gusts)
more aggressive styles

no wind and less distracting sounds are probly the 2 most relevant factors.

i'd conjecture that the players who rely heavily on good timing in their shots (federer, agassi, nalbandian, etc.) will tend to perform better indoors because they can guide themselves more purely by the sound of the ball. but i can't tell for sure. i've never played tennis indoors myself so i can't compare from a practical point of view.

You do have a point. I didn´t realize about this.
