Carpet is missing from this poll and the carpet lovers ( no, I am not specifically talking about lesbians here) should be catered for.

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".

I cant include carpet in the poll because as i said, im doing the same poll for non-tennis fans and people who just watch it regulary. They probably never heard of carpet and dont know its effect on play

Re: Your favorite surface. Please vote

Is it wrong to like all of the surfaces equally?? I really enjoy all of the surfaces for the different tennis they produce. And just like with weather, I love the change of seasons. It really keeps things fresh.
