Anyway, the big question there: did Sampras lose a bet that forced him to play in only his underwear?

Indoors is great. The fastest courts left are indoors and the matches are great to watch.
the only reason you like it is because Murray sometimes wins indoors.

Can you tell me more about that surface, I see you know a lot about that in general?

His shorts is funny

No. He probably likes it because it's good for tennis. Many people are sick and tired of those slow courts.Me too.

Hardly. Murray's good indoors, that helps a lot. BUT, indoors has some of the only fast courts left, so I like them. If Nadal was better indoors, you wouldn't have made this thread. You're angry because they aren't slow enough for Nadal.

This. His fans want every single court to be damn slow.

Slow courts are the true shower of how good a player is. They allow more time and players have to think about each shot more. the matches last longr, players have to be stronger. Also because it takes more time the players have more time to hit ahot and think about it. It's a thinking man's curface and one only for the mentally strong. On slow courts it is easier to go insane on court because there is more time to think about mistakes or 2nd guess your shots. This is why only the mentally and physically strong and the smart survive the slow courts.

On fast courts players can get lucky more often. because players can just swing there heartout each shot and sometimes its a winner. You have to serve good but that's only one part of the tennis game.

Indoor is great, obviously its not exposed to the elements aswell which is more fair, players wont get unlucky gusts of wind when serving then seeing it die down after their service game. I play it at the gym, its better than playing outdoors in the winter. Indoor carpet court, now you're talking !

"Indoor tennis" is nothing special. It's just tennis but you remove wind and other distractions. If your serve is good outdoors it should be even better indoors. If your forehand is good outdoors it's even better indoors and so on. Not every indoor court is fast either.

Indoor tennis usually reward players with great serve and great aggressive tennis as it is easier to go close to the lines and find angles. It usually punishes grinders and pushers who rather play way behind the baseline. That doesn't work on well indoors.

I see absolutely no problem in that. In fact that's how tennis should be imo. It should reward risk-taking and players that go for winners. The serve is supposed to be hard to break. If people want breakpoints in every game and no big serves there is always WTA for you

That is why it shows the real knowledge of players. Many players use wind as an advantage and same with the hot weather.
