Courts became even slower now that Nadal is in position for USO final and possible title.

Anyone denying 1 is completely blind or lies. The fact that Dull has taken advantage of that situation is undeniable.

2 is up to debate.

Proud supporter of El Tio , the greatest genius alive!

Alchimists transform iron into gold. Boriiiiiing!
Movie-makers transform dreams into reality. Yeah, whatever...
El Tio transforms Dull into a multiple GS champion! Daaaaamn!

El Tio has the keys to weather, court speed, draw making, umpires' decisions and perception of time between points, top players' fatherhood, and my libido!

This signature is in no way ironic. Please don't ever let El Tio think that, for my sake!

We need a fast, indoor slam like Metz

It's a travesty that there's 4 clay slams, and no fast slams.

Agreed. Not that court colour, though. If I want to see grey, I will look at the sky.

I'm in favor of anything that would stop WindRay from adding to his slam count.

Novak Djokovic nº1!
The Golden Era of Novak: Australian Open * Dubai * Indian Wells * Miami * Belgrade * Madrid * Rome * Wimbledon * Montreal * US Open * Abu Dhabi * Australian Open * Miami * Toronto * China * Shanghai * World Tour Finals 2012 * Australian Open 2013 * Dubai * Montecarlo * Beijing * Shanghai * Paris * WTF * Indian Wells * Miami * Rome * WIMBLEDON 2014 * AUSSIE OPEN 2015 * Indian Wells * Miami
Federer to Nole: "Amazing year. Amazing tournament. Amazing match. You are THE BEST!"
Either you get him or you don't!

It should be Paris 2010 speed and bounce.

If it's purely physical and you're watching someone playing six-hour matches over and over and showing no signs of being tired, you'd look at that. - Andrew Barron Murray OBE

Hahaha you're totally losing it aren't you. On the bright side at least you provide entertainment especially when you're on the receiving end.

BIG 4 AT GRAND SLAMS (between them):
Federer: 12-15 or 44%
Djokovic: 11-17 or 39%
Murray: 5-14 or 26%
RAFAEL NADAL: 25-7 or 78%

LOL. Here we go with the slow court conspiracy theorists.

No numbers back up what you are claiming.

Plenty of statements from tournament directors discussing their experimenting with court and ball changes to slow down the game, statements from various players on both tours, and of course personal observations and interactions with courts.

The numbers don't exist, not our faults as none of us have the resources to quantify these things. That's up to the ATP/ITF, and they obviously do a poor job at it.

Re: We need a fast, indoor slam like Metz

Let's do it. Milos would be racking up the slams in such a scenario.

Highly doubtful.

His return game would fare even worse, and his ground game would also be poorer than it already is.

He hasn't won an indoor tournament above 250 level, no reason to believe he'd even come close to winning an indoor slam.
