Cliff said that Mary Joe (who had been on the court at the U.S. Open earlier in the week) told him the courts at the U.S. Open were slower than in previous years. PMac said he would be surprised if that were the case & he would ask Mary Joe to explain her comment later. (I've been out today so I don't know if it was discussed today.)Skyward said:That's what Cliff Drysdale said yesterday. He also said that the tennis balls for the men are slower and the tennis balls for the women are faster. I wonder why they want to slow everything down?
