Do you think the game play would be different now if they switched back to carpet on the indoor season?


(Honest questions, as I barely followed the tour back then.)
I think it would encourage attacking tennis. But in the course of a year there would be little change in the game play. At the very least it would force players to adapt and diversify the calendar, providing a oppounity for attacking players to gain points.
