toronto and cincy both have decoturf,so how come each year the surface in cincy is much much quicker than in canada?

I'm not sure what exactly it is exactly in Cincinnati, but can tweak the speed of a hardcourt a lot. For example just what and how many layers of paint you are going to apply. Or in what direction the paint is applied, horizontally or vertically. Underground, exact composition, the hardening itself of the court.

Less sand in the decoturf used at Cincinnati. The heat also speeds it up some.

I think terms like "Decoturf" or "Taraflex" are simply brand names for several different tennis surface offered by a single company -- in many cases the same brand name is used for surfaces ranging from slow to fast.

Decoturf and Plexicushion are from the same company, but Taraflex is from a different one.

Cincy and Toronto are completely different surfaces. Not only in speed but traction and bounce as well. Cincy is much much lower bouncing.

Thanks. Do you know whether USO is more like Cincy or Toronto?

I believe that the open is quicker than any of the MS. Due to the fact that all there players love quick surfaces

It is hot as hell in Cincy.
It is quite quicker,and I think Toronto has bigger bounce.

Oh and it is humid in Cincy, it is unbelievably dificult to play.

Maybe it used to be but they slowed it down. It is more like Toronto now. The height isn't as much though as Toronto.

:rolls: I was going to say the same thing. Cinci is untainted by the Spartan Mafia. It's the only honest tournament left on ATP:rolls:

You are a true sour loser. You should change your Spanish nick 'Escude'.

Well it isn't Spanish anyway.

The rest of your post is apparently quite correct.

Escude was a former great - back in the days when courts were fast

you and most of the other posters in this thread learn some things about tennis, pre-Nadal, and then come back and talk to me

Escude is a Catalan surname . That's what he/she meant.

Sorry for not being the same age as Liza Minelly. In fact, I am the same age as Nadal, 22. I never thought that age was a reason for apologizing, but anyway, you always meet strange people.
Regarding the surname, you really make me laugh because I am from Valencia, and two friends of mine from that city have that surname: 'ESCUDÉ'. At the moment, I live in Barcelona, and I can tell you that on my phone list there are three Escudés. I don't usually talk without being informed.
Greetings from Barcelona.

Valencia is not in Catalonia. First mistake you make.
And regarding your poster, I must say that, fortunately, nationalites are not established by graffity. It is normally your passport or your identity card, the formal document that establishes your nationality, whether you like it or not.

Hey fangirl, Nicolas Escude was still full time on Tour in 2003 and won Rotterdam in 2001-2002 so like the MTF Escude said, go learn some things about tennis and come back.
