The smaller courts are are also the fastest this year, with the main courts being medium. There you go:

Rod Laver Arena: 38.4 (medium; this is slower than last year, which I found at 42)
Margaret Court Arena: 35.4
Hisense Arena: 37.2

All of these are medium, then. However:

Court 3: 42.6
Court 4: 43.4
Court 7: 43.1
Court 8: 45.6

These are all medium fast. A 10-point difference between MC Arena and court 8 is just freaking huge, btw. :eek:

So, who is gonna win the online petition match should we have a Fed-Nads final? The Federer fans asking for court 8, or the Nadal fans lobbying for MCA? :D

haha, Fed would love Court 8. Not only fast, but small that Rafa can't stand 4 meters back to return serve.

Being an experienced conspiracy theorist I would postulate the main courts are slower because they are the ones that get televised the most.

Whereas the matches on outside courts they just want finished quicker to help scheduling. Simples.

Lol the organizers are so desperate to create courts so Nadal can win, so they can push their false narrative that he is the goat and create controversy and make money.

Controversy sells, reality doesn't.
