Re: Spain F8 [25 March/Villajoyosa/Carpet]

It's not really carpet at all. It's artificial grass. Looks like the cheap heavily-sanded version.

You find this in clubs all over Ireland. Some juniors in my club can slide on it as it's clay. I doubt it plays anything like the proper carpet you'd associate with traditional indoor tennis.

Re: Spain F8 [25 March/Villajoyosa/Carpet]

Would be the first title of the year for Carballes, and one that is very much due after a stellar season.
