OK, got some inside info from Flushing Meadows, the courts are reported to be the slowest for God knows how many years. If this has been posted/discussed already, I am sorry. Take a look at the guys who have qualified, lots of claycourts specialists. The courts are like Miami this year according to several reliable sources. Who will benefit from this?? Tsonga Fish and DelPo will tear their hair, Murray will be satisfied. Djokovic? Federer? I think this might be good for the old man since what he needs is TIME even if he doesnt realize this himself. You cant play the same tennis now as you did at 26 Roger, just realize! Imo, no big guys will be in the QF like DelPo Tsonga Berdych Cilic etc.
