I personally think it looks very cool, looks like the old Australian Open in the 90's.

There was no need to change the colour, I loved the look of the Aussie Open this year, stupid TA.

So in the space of less than three years, we've gone from three green Slams to just one - I suppose that'll do something to maintain Wimbledon's unique qualities. Interesting point about the difference in colour tone between court and the surrounding area, that probably is quite a good idea, although I don't like the look of that blue personally.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

I don't really care what colour the surface is, but I do like the blue and I like the idea of two tones

Looks like the court used for San Jose.

Purple, orange, puce or lilac would be better. At least for the TV viewers the tennis balls should be easier to see.

Now lets see how fast these arseholes make the courts now.

Yikes! The most recent version of San Jose was more like ping pong in some ways. I'm sure they will slow that down a bit for next year.

Looks beautiful. I like it--can't wait until the AO. Hopefully the only thing they fuck around with is the color not drastic changes in the speed to complement.
