    Nice blue hard courts....harder to see the ball on the other surfaces, especially red clay.

    i have to agree on this one...
    but i think i have more trouble with those american standard green hardcourts ...
    the ball blends in more than it blends in with red clay

    The fastest grass possible, or Taraflex.

    U.S. Open Series Hardcourts

    I would have to go with the U.S. Open summer hardcourt season. The blue court with the green on the outside is the best combination for a hardcourt. Clay is good if you like long rallies but it can be tough to see the ball. Grass is alright but there isn’t nearly as much rallies as clay and hard courts.

    I'm American and say Aussie's Rebound Ace is by far the best surface for spectating. It just seems balanced to me, giving no type of player an advantage.

    Yeah the US open series Hards are awesome to watch. And the night matches with the lights just make it better.

    Yeah, I do like the contrast of the blue courts..it is easy to see the ball but I've got to admit....I love watching the dirt ballers....I love the clay...love watching them slide into their shots...love watching them construct a point and being patient...then bang...sweet!!!
