Can this get any more obvious? Let's just make every court Nadal has not won on play to his taste. Why not. However, the court does get quicker throughout the week IIRC, as players play more and more on it.

It's so short sighted. The intent since Fed's level dropped in 2008 was to have Nadull win the CGS and to make their rivalry GOAT. It helps a lot the pull Tony has with the ATP. They're pushing so hard for Nadull to win WTF, it might as well be pro-wrestling.

But what are they going to do in 10 years to sell the sport? Can't have another made up GOAT rivalry right after this one, especially with the lack of talent in the next gen. And if 17 slams is the target (and everyone has to win CGS) it's just going to become more and more ridiculous. Nadull and the ATP have destroyed their own sport, the way baseball did by breaking all of their own records and thereby ruining the reputation of the sport.

So the bounce is higher now?

Dull:

Piss easy draw -
High bounce -
Slow -
Draw opening up - (remains to be seen)

Paris court was slowed since 2012 to suit Nadal and he stil failed badly on it. Even though the speed might be slower and the bounce higher, Nadal is still an awful mover indoors.

The difference can be seen quite easily
I don't see a difference.

The few rallies I have seen though have all hit a cadence of just over one shot per second (17 in 14 seconds last year; 14 in 12 seconds this year).

But then again, I can't take seriously the opinion of anyone who thinks that an easy group is actually beneficial to winning the WTF. Come on it's like chess, at least think one move ahead. He's getting a tough SF and a tough final, most likely.

He first has to get out of the group. Having his indoor pigeons in it helps.

US Open should be changed to indoor HC and WTF to carpet.

Sweet idea, shame it won't happen. Americans love their indoor sports, so it's not impossible, especially if the big networks make a push for it.

I wonder when a journalist will finally have the balls (or the actual tennis knowledge) to call on ATP's cheating.

I never understood why you have two Grand Slams on the same surface, it just sounds so illogical. This way you have every single surface covered.

Although my ultimate dream is to completely remove hardcourt and have the tour play 50/50 on clay and grass, but I have the feeling that one is even less realistic

O2 court is as low-bouncing as ever... Delpo had some trouble bending to hit the ball yesterday.

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