The courts were faster this year than last year according to a number of players and people are still complaining. Unreal. AO is not supposed to be faster than USO and W. There's supposed to be 2 slower slams: AO and RG and 2 faster W and USO. That's perfectly fair and people have 0 basis for complaining about it.
LOLWUT?? Surface is ****ing slow at AO.Just because we have had Spectacular matches in last 5 years doesn't change the fact the surface is just sooo slow.Initially I wanted everything to be slowed because i wanted rafa to win everything,but its evident in last few years that slow surfaces are not good for body and it could kill you and finish your career per-maturealy.
