It's time to talk about this classic topic.
Apparently the court doesn't seem so fast. Although I have to admit that I haven't seen any action, but now during the qualies players aren't exactly dominating on serve. Especially the number of aces are very low. And they are breaking serve quite often.
Has someone watched the qualies? The first signs are pretty worrying. Last year was slow and bad, not again?
Perhaps its a bit on the slow side now, but remember that hard courts actually accelerate. players running around the court can wear down the surface friction, unlike grass where the surface seems to resemble clay more and more as the the tournament reaches its final stages.
Were still in the qualifying stage, 16 days away from the mens semifinal, it could be much faster by then.
