    Good choice using the US open ball, very wise since the surface is a hard court.
    :D

    The whole idea was to COPY, the us open conditions exactly the same so the pros don't have to make any adjustment when they fly to NewYork. Now they got the balls right, but the court speed is a total Disaster. i hear that the court is much slower than US open courts.

    People have said on this board that the US Open ones are better than the Australian Open ones.
