So last year the new surface at the AO was discussed at great length. However since the surface is not really new this year (just resurfaced) no one is talking about it. From the matches I've watched and the commentators talking about it, sounds like they slowed them down quite a bit by adding a lot of grit to the surface. This makes for higher bounces and makes slice less effective etc. I personally like the decision to slow them down as it will make things a bit more grueling and make for longer points. Anyone else have thoughts?
