What exactly IS the speed of Cincy this year? It looked fast during Blake/Janowicz and Federer's/Dimitrov's slices made it look fast, but Nadal's topspin seems to work well on it and didn't both Djokovic and Nadal say it's slower than Montreal? And I swear I've heard Darren Cahill go from talking about how fast the courts here are to saying they're actually slow this year to once again saying it's one of the fastest courts on the tour.

I think it's fast but the bounce is definately higher this year than normal.

Q. Rafa is undefeated on hard courts this year and you're undefeated on clay. Patrick said this year balance was really important with your clay game. I wondered about transitioning from clay to hard courts, what the challenges have been?

SERENA WILLIAMS: Well, actually, it's a lot easier, the transition, because the hard courts have gotten so slow since when I started playing. They were a lot faster. And now it's just so many more balls come back, and it's just almost basically playing on a fast clay court. I think the transition is a lot easier than it used to be.

NO. Servebots need to die for good. It's time for the HC specialists to improve their 1-2 shot game and develop forehands and backhands to stay in rallies. Sad for the voting. It's delightfull to see the younglings struggling against Spanish claymugs...says a lot about tennis.

It's already enough with both the AO and USO being on HC on top of the WTF.

It is disgraceful, higher bounce, slower balls.

The courts are fine. Tennis in the 90's was an abomination. Racket tech broke the damn game making it all about the serve. They had to slow the game down to fix it. You want faster courts, you have to go back to wooden rackets.

Watch matches from the 60's and 70's. If you think today's game is slow, you aren't going to be ready for what tennis looked like back then. It was cat and mouse and all about finesse. Watch Laver play. 20 shot rallies ON GRASS. It was a different game entirely.
