Court Pace Index: Tennis court speeds

I forgot to mention, this is just about the court speed. Although tests presumably still are impacted by conditions outside of strictly the court, it cannot fully account for the typical weather conditions that a tournament will be subject to, nor the balls themselves.

Point being that this is a thread about surface speed rather than the overall conditions. The conditions at Miami might be slower because of the humidity that generally plagues the event.
Careful there. Humidity on it's own does not slow balls down.

I like how you prefaced the topic, though, because it is that complex.

Does anyone see a speed difference between these two videos or is it just different angles and conditions?


There is a big temperature difference at IW between night and day. It can be 90s in early afternoon and down to 40s at night. That would account for the speed difference.

Ah OK good point. I was wondering if there is a difference from court speeds back then (past) versus now (present) since these two vids have similar angles and stuff.

any new Court Pace Index numbers? I would like to have a complete set of CPIs for 2017 masters, if available.

So basically we dont really have any actual "fast surfaces" any more it's more like medium fast unless something changed and people were whining because they sped up AO. I mean what is the point of different surfaces if most just hover around the medium department.
