WTF court speed
 
How is it? Fast as it should be? Slow like Paris?

Slow as any indoor court really.

Looks slightly faster, and maybe higher bouncing. Hard to tell.

There was something said about this during the Murray match. The commentator said that the same person did these courts as in Paris-Bercy and that they will be the same. One commentator said that they (the ATP, I guess?) wanted to keep the conditions the same. The other commentator remarked 'these are the top 8 players and they should be able to adapt' or something like that. Conversation took place in the first half of the first set, if anyone wants to look for it.

Considering the speed of the court, I could guess the person making the courts was the coaching uncle of an currently injured player. Too bad his newphew couldn't play, he would've loved these courts.

It is funny that people think fast courts are the best for Rog, Rog likes lowbouncing court specially against Rafa but also against everybody, the fact that it is really slow helps him I think as he has more time to hit and big hiters can't blow him off court

At this stage of his career, Federer definitely prefers to confront big hitters on slower surfaces.

Slow or not, there's not a lot of breaks. One break won each set in Murray - Berdych, no breaks of serve in 1st set Tsonga - Djokovic.
