Is it me, or is this clay really slow?
yeah I actually agree with this, I was watching the match with somebody else and we kept mentioned "why do the players look like they are hardly moving / limited footwork?", probably is slow as shit so Nadal hardly has to move around. Chile was so happy to have him come after all, good for politics and money maker
seriously I love Rafa but I wouldn't be shocked if the tournament deliberately made sure the clay was extraordinarily slow. the turnout for this tournament just because of the Nadal factor has to be over 5x what it is normally. probably more
of course clay is pretty slow almost no matter how you lay it or mix it, except of course for the infamous blue clay... haha
