Most hated surface

Which surface is the most hated by fans.
I think it's clay, maybe because nadal has dominated it for so long. Or is it some other surface?

Re: Most hated surface

The funny thing is that clay before Nadal was an exciting surface with players who used lots of court craft succeeding.

Re: Most hated surface

Clay, cause mostly there are weaponless pushers or moonballers who wins these clay events, playing their disgusting style of tennis.

Re: Most hated surface

Clay is the most beautiful surface, too bad blind hate for Nadal has changed this for a lot of people.

Re: Most hated surface

Clay

Not because Nadal win all the time like the 11 years old op suggests but because it's where the talented strikers (the most entertaining tennis players) struggle the most due to the fact that their talent/touch is nullified by the fitness and the consistency of some claycourters.

Re: Most hated surface

Slow clay or slow hard courts.

The problem isn't them necessarily, but that the tour is bloated with too many of these.

Nadal's arms strong!

Re: Most hated surface

Slow clay like in MC, I can't stand when it takes an hour to finish one point and I hate long games.
I also think this year AO was badddd and dangerous to the players health.

Hug it out as long as it takes, people

Hey, what's with the insults man? I just stated one of their reasons why clay may be the most hated surface. It's not my opinion, but others do agree that blind hate for nadal has ruined clay.
Be civil as the other posts are. If you can't, it will be a better idea not to post at all.

Re: Most hated surface

Grass. I just don't like the slipperiness of it all. It doesn't suit tennis as a sport in my opinion. It suits soccer and other team sports but I don't think it's very good for tennis.

I guess outdoor hard courts, but all surfaces are fine.

Re: Most hated surface

When someone ask about something wich concern a little Nadal or Federer, each posts end like this "you're a Nadal hater" or "you're a Fed hater". The entire tennis planet on this forum seems to turn around Federer and Nadal, there are nothing else, mostly because most of the posters are gloryhunters who didn't know anything about tennis before 2005.

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.
