Surprising. ATP should correct themselves and change it to blue clay in time.

Re: O2 Arena looks faster than last year

I don't see much difference. But it's the combo of balls + surface that matters. Those HEAD balls plays tricks on people. Sometimes they get worn superfast like in Paris and then it looks slow (like ass) and then they switch to new balls and it suddenly looks medium again. They need to fix the balls + surface combo so it never again can be like Paris. If they got a rough surface that fluffs up the balls then they need different balls and so on

Re: O2 Arena looks faster than last year

Wow. If it's faster do you think everyone will start serve and volleying?

No. Me neither.

Re: O2 Arena looks faster than last year

I doubt you can fully judge the velocity/bounce of the court by just watching the first set of a doubles match...

"It's getting colder, I'm getting colder, older, it's getting colder...

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"

Re: O2 Arena looks faster than last year

No

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".
