AO is my favourite slam in terms of atmosphere but they severely degraded the quality of play with that swamp of a surface.

At least it's always been that way. When they turn a surface which has to help offensive players into a pushers' paradise, you know it's wrong.

I love every kind of outdoor tennis, but actually here there is plenty of clay courts and barely no grass or hard courts at all, so I have always been way more familiar with clay. Indoor HC is the one I like the least.

Sorry for you little scrubs, but clay is tennis, and I says it although it is the surface I like less playing. You have to build the point, and not just to bash as Angela Lansbury accusing the various characters in her thrillers.

I dislike grass: the colour, the game it takes, the tournaments (excluding Wimbledon). It quite sucks.

This.
Though it refers to slow ass hardcourts as well.

Whatever court Nadal won his last title on. At this current moment, that would be clay. Hopefully, it stays like that.

I think 'Most disliked surface' would be more appropriate. I doubt that too many tennis fans truly hate a surface.

Either way, here clay wins by a landslide.

You are right. 'Disliked' would be a more appropriate word. And clay is winning by a landslide. Not too many takers for the defensive/pusher style of tennis, thank god.

^ Well said. Unless people are actually skipping the events (major and all), I doubt that anyone actually *hates* these surfaces.

That said, I strongly dislike clay, and that doesn't stop or start with Nadal. I just don't like the type of tennis that it has historically rewarded. Soderling, and to a lesser extent Ferrero, were greatly refreshing to me for the game they worked on clay.

Still, I'm one for having a balance on tour and keeping from homogenized surfaces, so the bigger offense to me might be a slow hard court like the ones at Indian Wells.

Slow HC , hazardous on the body , long boring rallies. At least on clay u get more craft and point construction.
