You should be thankful in a way the clay field is so shit now and lacks this type of player, as Murray wouldn't be seeing RG semi finals if there was.
you forgot Nadal. Forgive me I forget you wipe him from your memory because you are too scared to think about him too long.

Re: Does anyone like indoor tennis?

ATP did an article in light of the indoor season kicking off.

http://www.atpworldtour.com/News/Ten...r-Records.aspx

Some highlights:

Quote:
Ivan Lendl, No. 2 overall in the indoor list, who compiled a 344-71 (.829) indoor record including 41 titles, told ATPWorldTour.com, "Federer, Murray and Soderling all hit the ball pretty clean, which means they can be more aggressive. When I played, and even today, the faster the indoor court, the more aggressive you can and should be."
Quote:
Former World No. 4 Gene Mayer revealed to ATPWorldTour.com, "Federer uses the benefits of the controlled atmosphere to hurry his opponents. Murray returns well and gains some pace of shot by the livelier conditions and Soderling can overpower his opponents by harnessing the extra power on top of his already powerful game."
Quote:
For Mardy Fish, the list comes as no surprise. Playing indoors means one thing to the American. "Any time you have different variables -- cool and hot conditions, sun or wind -- it can sometimes be an equaliser," he admitted in Tokyo. "But a lot of the time, when the conditions are perfect, the better player wins more often than not."
Quote:
"Indoor tennis favours players with weapons," said Gimelstob. "The controlled environment, no variables like sun or wind, gives aggressive players with weapons a huge advantage. Indoor tennis favours players who can finish points, that's one of the reasons Soderling is a great indoor player. Huge weapons everywhere on the court, serve, return, forehand and backhand.

"First strike tennis indoors is easier to execute, hurting players off the serve and return. It favours shot-makers like James Blake, that can turn defence into offence with one swing of the racquet. It is easier to execute high-risk tennis indoors due to the lack of variables. Adjusting to indoor tennis isn't overly difficult, it is more an adjustment to lighting as it is artificial not natural."

Good article.
I simply cannot understand that some people don't like indoors.

Re: Does anyone like indoor tennis?

In the 80's and 90's it was simply amazing and exciting. Nowadays the season is pretty much over after The Open. The surface and the lack of quick courts are killing indoor tennis. The boring Asian circuit with empty stadiums is also crap. Only Bercy and Basel remain as some kind of classy tournaments. Vienna and Stockholm have been almost destroyed and then they have Valencia as a 500 event. Also the February season is pretty dull these days. Oh, just remembering the days of Stuttgart, Brussels, Philly and Memphis. Well, Memphis still hangs around, but it's useless.

Re: Does anyone like indoor tennis?

Shotmakers are the same thing as ballbashers. There are onyl a few shotmakers who are not. Like Golubev, Del Potro and Almagro.

Golubev and Del Potro are pure definition of brainless ball bashers with no tactics. They both belong on WTA tour along with clowns like Korolev, Istomin and Gabashvili.
