So when you realize that clay is less liked than the other surfaces, your first thought is obviously "well it's perhaps because Nadal is good in clay", it's boring.
The current world of tennis does revolve entirely around federer and nadal because that's a rivalry that has put to shame every other.
Clay was actually very respected in the 80s. I think people started hating it because of Sampras' failures in clay and the sentiment was cemented by nadal's utter dominance. I guess if federer had won a couple more RGs it would be great for clay.

I most dislike the atrocious current AO one and also maybe Miami



World #1.

Some people mistake the Distant Sun for an eternally raging fireball calling for your demise. Just like aliens from outer space. Aliens from other planets. Aliens in galaxies too far away from your own comprehension. Your demise is ultimately irrelevant and meaningless.

Do not question our motives, our objectives, or our qualities. Question your own place in the universe.

Re: Most hated surface

I dont like slow hardcourt.

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.

Re: Most hated surface

Slow hardcourts. Plexicuxion is the worst surface of all.

Re: Most hated surface

Clay because it takes forever to finish a point and it favours defensive tennis while I like attacking, first-strike tennis.

Guess this also aplies to slow harcourt but at least on hardcourts you don't have bad bounces.

Re: Most hated surface

Slow outdoor hardcourts. That being said AO is my favorite slam.

Re: Most hated surface

Clay. Rewards running and retrieving to much. Clay is the surface that allows the less talented players an opportunity to flourish. Just play great defense and you've got a chance on this stuff.

Clay : allows untalented boring grunting moonballing pushers to make a life out of tennis
