New graphics out this week through yesterday.
Careful there. Humidity on it's own does not slow balls down.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.
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.Does anyone see a speed difference between these two videos or is it just different angles and conditions?
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.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.
