I've edited the title so we can discuss both. Didn't realise there were no streaming yet for Tokyo so it's quite hard to understand how the play at the moment.

I saw the end of Youzhny-Haas in Beijing, it looked really quick, quite like Dubai, maybe quicker.

From the scoreboards in Tokyo, I had the impression it's quick as well.

Beijing's surface is really fast. It's fast HC compared to 90% of the hardcourts on the tour.

Beijing kept the Olympics surface, right? It's a fast court, a very nice fast court. I like it. Don't know about Tokyo...

I'm watching Harrison-Lopez and it certainly plays faster than what I thought

Both are medium-paced which these days means fast.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...

No, I don't think so.

Yes, Beijing is definitely fast. They've sped up last year, many players confirmed that. During the 2009 and 2010 editions it was the usual shit speed though but it seems like these days are the past and they realized to make it a bit faster. The speeding up was probably due to the fact that Shanghai also had a faster surface last year (they did this in order to get Fed to play but it didn't work last year) and the organizers have already announced it some time before the start so probably Beijing just adjusted to them.

Tokyo was one of the fastest tournaments in 2009 and 2010 (yes, when Nadal won there it was fast) but due to the earthquake last year they had to resurface the Ariake Tennis Center (correct me if the name is wrong) so the courts were at a more medium speed.

maybe but Beijing has always been quicker than Shanghai since it was an ATP500 tournament in my memories.

I think the humidity also plays an important role in Beijing : sometimes it's slower because it's very humid, doesn't look like that this year.

yes when Nadal benefitted from Troicki's choke and Monfils's usual bad game in the final

Klizan told that he had never seen fastest courts like these at Tokyo. He told that it´s absolutely crazy and that he couldn´t play tennis on it... Take it for what it´s worth, he was probably mad after the loss, but it´s still something to consider. He also said that centre court in Tokyo is a bit slower than the other crazy courts there...
