From the official Paris AMS site:


Faster surface
The BNP Paribas Masters courts have been redesigned for 2008 to improve the visibility and comfort for players, fans and television viewers alike. The interior of the courts are now "Roland Garros" green while the surrounding area is blue/purple – the opposite of how they were last year. The Gerflor wood resin surface will be faster than in 2007 and be comparable with what is used at the tournaments in Vienna, Stockholm, Madrid and Basle which lead up to the BNPPM and at Shanghai for the season-ending Masters Cup. The change is the result of requests from the top players, who will now find themselves playing in very similar conditions (both in terms of the surfaces and the balls) for the remaining major tournaments this year.


Rafa is so done...

Cordy! :smooch: :worship:

This was my first time predicting that Rafa would not win in the MIT. Losing is fun. :D Epic Fail FTW! :rocker2:

Davydenko is my 2nd favourite player after Rafa and I think he needs a nice result more than Rafa now, so I'll be supporting him.

I also think Davydenko will win this one, but you never know with this guy.

Well season 2008 is over :sad: too bad Rafa had to finish this season pulling out of the match with an injury. But it has been such an amazing season for my fav :D He had a great run, won everything he had set his mind and heart on (DC is still to be seen :) ) and finished the year as #1. Great!

Get well soon, Rafa :wavey:

l_mac

You don't think he'll play Masters Cup?

I don't post on MTF that much but is the average age on GM 12 or what :silly: :spit:

Aenea

You don't think he'll play Masters Cup?

I do think he will :wavey: unless today's injury is a bad one :unsure:

Maybe I should say Well for me season 2008 is over. I already expressed my thoughts about so called MC.

Well I'm glad I went to the tournie early on and managed to see Fed and Rafa before they were injured.

So his last match ever wearing a sleeveless he retires.

Long live the sleeveless legacy.

so rare to see rafa not finishing a match, I hope his injurie is not hurting him too much and that he'll soon recover so he can at least play Shanghai (and maybe win it)
get well soon rafito, you had a wonderful season, you have the right to be tired, come back even stronger!

acionescu
11-01-2008, 12:18 PM
I won in MIT :awww:

Jordan :ras:, great thread titles but next time, please prevent yourself from opening a thread :armed:

Not only you're a hater and a jinxer but you're also a injury inducer :scared: :mad:

That being said, Rafito really likes French pastery :drool: Not only he has it in Bercy every year but, generous soul as he is, he gives it plenty in RG :inlove: Even RogiGOAT is an eager consumer. :hug:
