Rafa wants to have everything
He's politely sending a message
Since the thread about surfaces was closed I'm posting my thoughts here:
As much as I agree that the courts and even grass are slower than before and it favors players like Rafa. I don't agree they have done it especially for him
The rackets are better and the players are better athletes. Nadal was just the right person on the right time and place.
Every year when USO starts, I have to get use to those super high ball bounces. The conditions are much more similar to clay and I hate it. They slowed down everything they could, IW and Miami are even worse than USO
. Apparently that's not enough for them as we could read that they want to make Miami a clay tournament...
We all saw this yesterday, Rafa was returning the ball back as much as he wanted. When he got in the good position he hit a bigger shot and that's it. End of the story.
That's the future of tennis. Marathons with a lot of topspin. It's about the defense not the offense. We have to get use to it.
