The whole point, that the proponents of the return of the fast surfaces are making is, that a balance between slow, medium and fast/ultrafast surfaces should be struck, so that the coaches and younger players are stimulated, to develop a multifaceted games and a variety of styles.

It was never an intention to create a Tour, dominated solely by fast surfaces or S&V tennis, as some people here are implying.
