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

http://www.bnpparibasopen.com/News/T...c-Preview.aspx

“You need to play lots of matches and you play against best players in the world. The conditions here are suitable to my style of the game. I think the courts are a little bit slower, which I like and prefer better, so I'm looking forward to this week.”

We haven't had any coverage yet, but it looks like the courts will be EVEN slower this year

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Federer - The Artist
Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V

Soon Nadal will hit a moonball that will bounce off the International Space Station for a Djokovic smash.

I could walk down to my local tennis club, even on a damp day and play on (well looked after) clay courts that are still miles faster than 90% of ATP hardcourts.

Soon Nadal will hit a moonball that will make a full orbit around the earth for a Djokovic smash.

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

All these years I am not surprised that the courts are getting slower but really surprised because this is particularly visible at North American events . Americans aren't type of people who do give a shit for what everybody else are doing and trying adopt his own standards to others. And instead of trying to help their own players they are doing against them. This is the most confusing fact in all this
