Tennis is not meant to be played indoors. So is with football. These are outdoor sports. Everyone even with a peanut brain should turn off TV as soon as he sees indoor tennis.

On slow courts it is easier to go insane on court because there is more time to think about mistakes or 2nd guess your shots. This is why only the mentally and physically strong and the smart survive the slow courts.

On fast courts players can get lucky more often. because players can just swing there heartout each shot and sometimes its a winner. You have to serve good but that's only one part of the tennis game.
Translation:

Slower courts are the best because they allow Nadal to grind easier than fast courts and allow him to outlast his opponents, allowing him to win more matches.

Re: Does anyone like indoor tennis?

Most carpet actually disappeared in the late 90s - the vid above was the year they switched the tour finals to hard, it was a carpet (Greenset Trophy I think?) before that.

Indoor tennis usually reward players with great serve and great aggressive tennis as it is easier to go close to the lines and find angles. It usually punishes grinders and pushers who rather play way behind the baseline. That doesn't work on well indoors.

I see absolutely no problem in that. In fact that's how tennis should be imo. It should reward risk-taking and players that go for winners. The serve is supposed to be hard to break. If people want breakpoints in every game and no big serves there is always WTA for you
In other words, indoor tennis rewards pure technique and aggressive shotmaking.

Re: Does anyone like indoor tennis?

Almost all indoors courts are built on temporary wooden bases, so they don't have much bounce. Only exceptions I can think of are Moscow and Zagreb, which are on mats underneath - there might be a couple of others, that's off the top of my head. Certainly Paris masters and WTF are on boards, can't remember what Rotterdam is.

That basically makes retreating much behind the baseline counterproductive, because you end up hitting the ball 2 inches off the ground.

Re: Does anyone like indoor tennis?

If they aren't going to bring back carpet, they could at least make indoor courts faster. I was reading that one of the WTA players said that the surface in Moscow (or was it Luxembourg?) was so much slower than it was last year.

Slow indoor tennis

This match is from 1996. and its still was Capret.. in 1997. they changed it to Hard (not sure why they done that cause in that year Grand Slam Cup, Basel, Singapore, Vienna, Lyon, Stuttgart, Paris and Moscow was still on Carpet, only Stockholm went to Hard)
