Default Karlovic: "Court and balls in Miami are too slow to play entertaining tennis"

Court and balls in Miami are too slow to play entertaining tennis. There is no winners, just unforced errors.

Agreed.

He said the same thing 4 or 5 years ago about Miami iirc. He's always struggled there, same as Isner.

It's the same for all players dependent on serve, and it's not too surprising imo: Miami has the lowest serving figures of any hard court masters.

You know something is wrong when players are exhausted after a three-setter. Imagine a five-setter on these courts.

If you are not going to fix the courts, change the balls.

Use the WTA ball, it is faster.

Karlovic sucks too much to play entertaining tennis. There are no winners, just aces.

Federer, Nadal and Djokovic pander to plutocrats and charge huge appearance fees. The "trickle down effect" means that tournaments like the Heineken Open now have to pay appearance money for racketeers that many of us have never heard of. It's close to extortion.

At the end of Federer's first round match at the Australian Open a fawning interviewer asked about his kids and if he had bought coach Stefan Edberg a birthday present - no, by the way, the privilege of knocking up with 'King Roger' was enough of a present apparently.

Good for Ivo. Why don't more players talk about the ridiculous speed of the courts?

Ivo obviously annoyed at how hard the court makes it for big servers, however I agree completely with his point if not his more than likely motive for the comments.

Miami is a chore to watch, never mind play. Was nice to see Gasquet and Haas making runs but otherwise a very poor tournament.
