The problem with the current courts/surface is that very little adjusting is required, it's far easier for all of the top players to play the same way on every surface and still post strong results across all the big tournaments.

A better balance of slow/fast surfaces (I don't think anyone here is saying that all courts should be sped up, just some of them), would force the players to adjust their games more to differing surfaces, and that would be better, more equitable and more fun to see them getting tested more.

Federer to his credit has talked about he has benefited from the modern day surface homogenisation, along with Nadal:

''Anyway, every surface is very similar today, otherwise we couldn't have achieved all these things on all these different surfaces so quickly, like him and myself.''
