So, today we saw Ferrer beat Ancic, Robredo beat Blake and Gaudio almost reached the 4th round of a hard court slam
This was on the day after Juan Ignacio Chela took out Lleyton Hewitt. After his match, Lleyton claimed the courts were even slower than in 2005, inspite of the new "faster" Wilson balls. Do these results prove that he's right?
Not that I'm defending his comments. It's ridiculous to whine about the surface when there are already two
grand slams played on fast courts. The Australian Open should be working in the best interest of tennis
, not Lleyton Hewitt. But do these courts suit the clay players now more than ever?
If they are so slow, why is Andy Roddick having no problems this year? Would Rafael Nadal have been the favourite, if he'd been fully fit?
