Let the players who can rally well be rewarded with titles on clay but it is only fair to the population of tennis players as a whole to have some important tournaments on a court surface that rewards good serving, aggressive shot making and sublime touch at the net More power to John and co. I say
Great post so refreshing to see a fan embrace big man tennis and players tryimg to win the point outright and points with very fee rallies! Not just knocking the ball in play waiting for the other guy to miss!
