Did anyone just see that on ESPN2? They tried to bounce a ball and it didn't bounce. How the heck does that happen? Hopefully someone posts that on youtube soon. It was so weird. The Sharapova match has been delayed because of it.

Roddick broke the court :)

Eurosport also showed it. Sharapova and Goerges are back on court.

they just showed how they fixed it...there was a bubble and they had to drill into it and pound out the air. that was weird! i've never seen that before.

Pretty simple, bubble under the surface, which can happen in the heat....drill it and let the air out, and the ball bounces again.

If they went back to Australian grass there'd be none of this silliness! :D
