Sweet can't wait for the 3 and half hour final.

Serve. Return. Lob. Lob. Lob. Lob. Lob. Lob. Lob. Lob. Error.

From this point on, they should replace "glacial pace" with "IW court pace".

Glacial pace= Wimbledon 92 compared to IW 2012

As for the quote, Nole might be comparing IW to Dubai, but if he did, he probably would say that IW is much slower, not "a little bit slower". And, if IW is only "a little bit slower" than Dubai, that means that IW has been sped up?

Therefore I think he is referring to IW 2012 vs. IW 2011 or earlier.

No way of knowing obviously, but he would've found a way. He won the USO when it was still pretty quick, he won the Olympics which were super fast.
So there's no way of knowing but you know he'd find a way. Nadulltards contradicting themselves in one sentence since 2004 .

And if the court speed doesn't matter let's just move it to carpet, shall we. Surely it doesn't matter.

Re: Novak Djokovic: "I think the courts are a little bit slower"

You could have just used tennis fans. Would have been enough to get your point across.

most novak and rafa fans dont want faster surfaces (me excluded), guessing its similar with fans of clay court players, and "casual fans" who purely watch the sport on telly, ask them and they for sure wouldnt like all serve matches, thats boring and the reason why they slowed the courts in the first place. beside tennis appears to be at an all time high viewers-wise.

again, thats not to say the complaint in itself isnt right, it is, but whats popping up on forums such as MTF is in large measure an exaggeration coming from, lets call em, non rafa-djoko fans. I mean there is a tardish element in it, thats my impression.

I guess you haven't seen the Miami court. It makes Monte Carlo look like an ice rink.

There's nothing in between all serve matches, and 6 hour grind fests? What's wrong with a medium speed court?
