Re: Most hated surface

Most "medium-slow" hardcourts today which either play like sandpaper, quicksand or velcro in combination with the modern balls.

Slow hardcourts.

Boring as shit.

Re: Most hated surface

Slow hardcourt. Never liked it. I have respect for any of the other surfaces though.

I love attacking tennis

Re: Most hated surface

Plexipave and Laykold closely followed by Plexicushion are the worst surfaces on tour.

Hewitt is a bitch with no balls. He whined about Rebound Ace not being quick enough despite it being like ice in comparison to the current AO courts.

Clay is fine. Clay has always been fine. Nadal's monopolisation is dull, but at least it's acceptable unlike the slowing of other slams in order to ensure top player SFs and Fs.

Very true. Slowing down of courts to the current level is criminal.

Re: Most hated surface

I like clay, I just don't like Nadal or Almagro so I don't like a lot of the matches. Watching Soderking dominate on it is fun though.
