    Djokovic told the Serbian media that ATP should somehow speed up the game.He said that game became so physical, it's so many rallies that ATP and other authorities should do something.They slowed down the surfaces by adding additional rough layers to protect players from injuries which is OK, but the most interesting thing he stated that the biggest problem is not so much in slower surfaces, but the tennis balls!!!They are bigger(OK don't :))heavier and the main reason why It's so slow now.They should change it.Basically that's what he said, opinions???

    What is wrong with people? Without a source this thread isn't worth a dog nut.

    If this is true,Rolaids better be careful what he wishes for. The slower courts have helped him tremendously,and his best slam(AO)is slower than molasses. Not sure just what he's trying to prove with comments like that.

    Strange thing to say when his best surfaces are slow/medium hardcourts.

    Not everyone is as selfish as Nadal who wants every court to play like MC.

    Nolan needs heavy soaked balls in order to win RG. Obviously he is speaking in the best interest of the game, at his own expense. My respect for him just doubled.
