I think in particular Federer's success never mind Goran's Olympic performance in Barcelona and Pete's slower court wins render that a scheiße statement

If a player was good enough then they adjusted to the surface challenges, which don't exist anymore.

They could easily speed up the surfaces and it won't be all serve, penalty shootout tennis.

It's strange how the term moonballing has come to represent something so different from what it originally was used to describe.

A quote from the Bercy tournament-section:

Apparently to help the transition to the uber-slow WTF.

If it's as slow as Basel, I will shed a tear... last year's Paris was amazing.

So, what are the first impressions about Bercy? Medium? The Muller-Anderson match isn't filled with aces, but players seem to be holding serve quite nicely.

@wimby88 We don't avoid the question. The courts are slower this year to resemble the court of the O2 arena of London (home of the Masters)
