WTF court speed

How is it? Fast as it should be? Slow like Paris?

Re: WTF court speed

Looks slightly faster, and maybe higher bouncing. Hard to tell.

Re: WTF court speed

There was something said about this during the Murray match. The commentator said that the same person did these courts as in Paris-Bercy and that they will be the same. One commentator said that they (the ATP, I guess?) wanted to keep the conditions the same. The other commentator remarked 'these are the top 8 players and they should be able to adapt' or something like that. Conversation took place in the first half of the first set, if anyone wants to look for it.

Re: WTF court speed

Asterisk-worthy.

Educating MTF clowns one post at a time.
So many fanboys to troll, so little time.

Favourite tennis matches: 2011 US Open Final & 2012 Australian Open Final, starring Novak Djokovic & Rafael Nadal, showing us just how far science can take humanity.

The US Open Final was especially enjoyable, with 'Why are there white spots all over my body?' Djokovic and 'Why am I sweating boils?' Nadal embarked on a titanic battle, concluding with the inferior player, Nadal, entering a sort of delirious state of psychosis. This allowed him to, while showing very little fatigue, consume inhuman amounts of energy, before he literally ran his legs from underneath him. This is truly the stuff dreams are made of.

Slower than last year's for sure.

Considering the speed of the court, I could guess the person making the courts was the coaching uncle of an currently injured player. Too bad his newphew couldn't play, he would've loved these courts.

Re: WTF court speed

It is funny that people think fast courts are the best for Rog, Rog likes lowbouncing court specially against Rafa but also against everybody, the fact that it is really slow helps him I think as he has more time to hit and big hiters can't blow him off court

9!!!!!!!

Re: WTF court speed

At this stage of his career, Federer definitely prefers to confront big hitters on slower surfaces.

Re: WTF court speed

Slow or not, there's not a lot of breaks. One break won each set in Murray - Berdych, no breaks of serve in 1st set Tsonga - Djokovic.
