Would you like WTF London and Paris-Bercy to be as fast as Montpellier?

What do you think about this? To have last 2 indoor events- really big events generally to have similar surface speed-pace like Montpellier, it is looking pretty good, Paris was fast in 2010 and last year it was again bad... and London is simply slow indoor since they got there after switched with Shanghai. 2 biggest indoor events i think should play more like indoor events, with more winners, serve advantage and it will be entertaining comparing to mostly outdoor baseline marathon matches

Yes. Court speed this week has been awesome, it's what indoors tennis should be all about.

Even the US Open series should be that quick.



Roger Federer ♦ David Goffin ♦ Mikhail Youzhny ♦ Dustin Brown ♦ Pierre-Hugues Herbert

Cincy and Washington are as quick, but last year US Open was a joke.

I want Paris as fast as it was in 2010.

If Montpellier is so "fast", so why do we have Simon the pusher vs clown Monfils in semi ??? And why Llodra decided not to play ? Montpellier is not faster than another indoor event

Simon has faced Cipolla and Rufin. Monfils has a huge serve, and can play indoor. He made the finals in Bercy 2010. Llodra made AO and DC his priorities.

Montpellier looks to me to be at least top 5 in surface speed compared to last season.

Everything post RG should be fast. That would be a well-balanced season.

WTF's should have a relatively neutral court speed.

It's actually the same Greenset as WTF, just a little quicker version. Major difference is in the balls.

Probably is one of the quickest indoors now though. Rotterdam last year was quicker, but they're going to slow it. Memphis maybe?

I sometimes wonder if the people on GM have ever watched tennis. Simon is just as good on faster surfaces as he is on slow surfaces because he doesn't have to generate pace and he played Rufin and Cipolla. What the hell are you talking about?

Gilles Simon-Roger Federer

At least Fedtards are evolving. Conversely, your brain seems to be heading in the other direction.

Hell, no. Tennis isn't a battle of good servers. We could even see Karlovic winning a Master, and this cannot be accepted.
I like surfaces in this way. Maybe a little quicker, but not à la Montpellier.
