Pity that the poll options were written in such a stupid way
Look Mr you want 6 million poll options? Have your cake and eat it. And if you ain't happy with it bin the cake!

On today's slowass surfaces you can't have a 3-hour 5-setter even on grass.

To this thread's question, I like grass and fast HCs the most. Those are the surfaces favouring offensive tennis. Or in this slowass era, they're the surfaces punishing offensive players with poor defensive abilites least.

On the other hand, two talented players on clay may be cool, like Stan-Richie at RG this year. You have some longer rallies with nice shotmaking but it isn't an endurace battle like between two pushers.

I voted for Hard but I love grass just as much I sometimes find Clay boring, though there have still been some great matches on the surface. Just like it less than the other two.
