Courts became even slower now that Nadal is in position for USO final and possible title.

Anyone denying 1 is completely blind or lies. The fact that Dull has taken advantage of that situation is undeniable.

2 is up to debate.

Default We need a fast, indoor slam like Metz

It's a travesty that there's 4 clay slams, and no fast slams.

Agreed. Not that court colour, though. If I want to see grey, I will look at the sky.

I'm in favor of anything that would stop WindRay from adding to his slam count.

Hahaha you're totally losing it aren't you. On the bright side at least you provide entertainment especially when you're on the receiving end.

LOL. Here we go with the slow court conspiracy theorists.

No numbers back up what you are claiming.

Plenty of statements from tournament directors discussing their experimenting with court and ball changes to slow down the game, statements from various players on both tours, and of course personal observations and interactions with courts.

The numbers don't exist, not our faults as none of us have the resources to quantify these things. That's up to the ATP/ITF, and they obviously do a poor job at it.

Let's do it. Milos would be racking up the slams in such a scenario.

Highly doubtful.

His return game would fare even worse, and his ground game would also be poorer than it already is.

He hasn't won an indoor tournament above 250 level, no reason to believe he'd even come close to winning an indoor slam.
