Edberg and Rafter played classical games where the ball went over the net more than once but all service-mugs like Sampras and Ivanovic (and to a lesser extent also Federer) ruined it.

I think in particular Federer's success never mind Goran's Olympic performance in Barcelona and Pete's slower court wins render that a scheiße statement

+1
But why did you use 'scheiße'

Federer |Söderling |most of the Germans

I also like: Wawrinka | Tsonga | Dimitrov | Isner | Gulbis |

Warm regards: 6-3 6-0 / 6-3 6-4

Re: Speed up the Courts

If a player was good enough then they adjusted to the surface challenges, which don't exist anymore.

They could easily speed up the surfaces and it won't be all serve, penalty shootout tennis.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

It's strange how the term moonballing has come to represent something so different from what it originally was used to describe.

A quote from the Bercy tournament-section:

Apparently to help the transition to the uber-slow WTF.

If it's as slow as Basel, I will shed a tear... last year's Paris was amazing.

Re: Speed up the Courts

So, what are the first impressions about Bercy? Medium? The Muller-Anderson match isn't filled with aces, but players seem to be holding serve quite nicely.

According to Aga Radwanska it was slow and such are my impressions aswell.

bnppmasters BNP PARIBAS MASTERS
@wimby88 We don't avoid the question. The courts are slower this year to resemble the court of the O2 arena of London (home of the Masters)

When I'm good, I'm very good...but when I'm bad, I'm better
