Counter punchers do well on fast surfaces.. They don't need to do much except get the ball back and their opponent struggle to deal with the speed of the court.

I didn't think montpellier was very fast. Chennai was fast though and Bercy in 2010.. R.I.P those surfaces in any big tourney.. Even the US OPEN

Get more sense talking to a wall.

because Davis cup is in Vancouver with a high jetlag from France : he asked other Davis cup players not to go to Montpellier as well.

Tsonga and Benneteau didn't go as well.

Yes but it will not happen.

One day people here should understand that it's the players who decide, our voice doesn't count.

They asked the ATP to ask Berdy director to slow down Bercy : they got it (Bercy director told it).

And now they want to play WTF right after the US Open and then cancel all MS1000 and ATP500 tournaments after then.

Bercy is a tournament which will die within a few years.

Besides here is what I heard about Australian Open final last week :

- people who played tennis a lot didn't like it

- people who were just occasional TV viewers told me "have you seen the final ? it was gorgeous !"

I like surfaces in this way. Maybe a little quicker, but not à la Montpellier.
It's ALWAYS WTA tards who spout this garbage.

Why can't indoors be lightning fast? Gives those net rushers and huge servers the chance to obtain ranking points?

The serve is the hardest shot to master. Why can't it be rewarded in some quarters the same way a big forehand or, in the 2012 edition of tennis, rabbit-like scrambling can reward players?

WTF should be neutral, agree on Bercy though.

fast surface doesnt equate to Aces winning Fast surface means rallies last about 2-4 strokes and we see good attacking tennis with aggressive forehands and backhands as well as a few decent volleys
