4 different surfaces.
One of the grand slams (U.S. Open) should be indoor carpet and move to a new location. New York is way to pricey for most fans.

Yes, but NY is the perfect location because of the raucous fans and airplanes constantly flying overhead. That is what makes the Open what it is. If New York is too pricey for most fans, then what about flying to Australia ( I think it costs $7,000), Paris, or London, where strawberries and cream are expensive as hell.

Almost everyone in the US plays on hard court anyway. Let Australia change their surface to kangaroo skin.

This is a silly suggestion. AFAIK the USO has been held in New York since the open era(1968). The USO belongs in New York.

Also Rebound Ace does not play like Decoturf II.

Masters Cup at the Palace of Auburn Hills, players beware. Ours fans don't just insult you, they throwdown

Haha, on the radio this morning, a guy mentioned how NASCAR is the only sport where people behave like gentleman. I was thinking "they usually do in pro tennis!"

Gentlemen? Where's Tony Stewart? Tennis needs a Ron Artest, moody, misunderstood, maniacal. http://www.ronartest.com/RonArtest.htm

Sorry, but the Grand Slams should be on natural surfaces, either clay or grass.

Wait until New Delhi gets a slam, natural cow dung courts.

You must not get out too often. London and Paris are way more expensive than NYC. But no, it's not Wal-Mart, either.

Remember when it was LAWN tennis and 3 out of the four slams were played on grass. Roland Garros being the exception. That's why the serve and volley game was so dominant. Question--doesn't Rebound Ace play a lot slower than Decoturf?? So why don't the clay courters/baseliners have better results in Australia??
