What do you think of the new AO surface and the blue court?

Firstly, the surface should have stayed Rebound Ace. If there was an important reason to abandon Rebound Ace then fine, but I don't see it, and it makes AO appear to be a lesser version of the US Open. It should have avoided all comparisons by sticking to that higher bouncing slightly slower Rebound Ace.

I personally much prefer the green courts. Blue is kind of dull to me. Green for some reason makes more of an impression and just overall its better on my eyes :)

Shouldn't you be happy Tsonga is winning on this surface? :o

He will win on every surface, but I didn't want these changes to AO :)

Personally I love the blue. Comes out nicer in photos, and my favourites seem to be doing well on the surface. I like it a lot.

First, all new tennis courts should be purple.

Second, I loved rebound ace tennis.

Sharapova won, Federer lost. I'm split.
(Sharapova would have won on ice, sand, and bubble gum with how well she played though...)
