LOL NAT!!! But Massu deserved a good win, and im happy for him
Oh by the way... yes I'm being serious right now, this one's dedicated to YOU Jase...
"Beyond this beautiful horizon,
lies a dream for you and i -
this tranquil scene is
still unbroken by the rumours in the sky
but there's a storm
closing in voices
crying on the wind
the serenade is growing
colder breaks my soul
that tries to sing
and there's so many many
when I try to go to sleep but with you I start to feel
a sort of temporary peace
there's a drift in and out
As you know, the most common surface in Spain is red clay. Now, the strongholds of tennis here are the East Coast and Madrid and surroundings. Most top players (all in the top 100?) come from those areas. Tennis clubs in the East have almost 100% clay courts. The few hard courts are mainly used in case the clay courts are under maintenance or full, and never for instruction or serious matches. BUT in Madrid and surroundings, for some reason, hard courts are more common. Clay is still the boss, but you can find kids being taught on hard, and hard courts are more easily seen in clubs. I believe that's why players from those areas (Verdasco, LaLo etc.) have a less clayish game style, including better serves on average.
Of course. This isn't black or white.
It always also baffled me why Muzza is so sucky on clay when he actually trained in Spain for some years. It must have been in Madrid then - where there are more hard courts.

Hey Warriors, just got back from playing in this heat. Man it was roasting out there today. Time to grab some dinner and settle down to watch some of the LA tennis. I recorded it earlier while I was playing, so can't spend much time here or I'll see who wins.
Davy hauled in some more vcash today, he's been a money machine lately. I agree Karin, they are paying slow today. So many events at once I guess..
