No doubt, speed variety is needed.This is good. I’m glad they slowed down courts over last 25 years as in the 90’s it was just serve and volleying which becomes boring when you want to see rallies but I then felt they slowed them down too much and most tournaments were slow so it’s good to see some getting faster
Yep that’s it. I liked them slowing down the courts but it got too a point where it was nearly all them. You need slow HC like IW, Paris which was fine but then they started to slow Shanghai and Cinci. I like the variety. I used to watch all old matches and the courts where fast which made for some dull matches were serve dominant so I’m glad it changed but it be nice if there was a few events like that.No doubt, speed variety is needed.
If favors Djokovic, he has been the best fast court player after Federer, fast low bouncing plays into his hands against anyone not named Federer.It is faster. But not like the 90s.
Players with big forehands and good volleys should try and come to the net. It should benefit Tsitsi as he has a big forehand but unfortunately not a good volleyer. He missed some easy ones against Murray. If he works on that and follows up his big forehand with a volley, he has a chance.
Med is not a volleyer. I don't think it benefits him but he was playing well.
Dan Evans should do well but he seemed to have groin trouble.
Shapo is another one who will benefit. Is he a volleyer?
Who else do you think will benefit?
Roger would've enjoyed that but he's out injured or retired.
AO was still faster but conditions didn't behave like 50 cpi because of heavier balls.So cos of the balls USO is playing even faster than AO21? High ace count to be expected by everybody ?
