Re: how fast is madrid????

Slow as hell judging by the last few ATP Masters in Madrid
but as its at Altitude the ball will fly thru air faster.

its a HIGH bouncing court

Re: how fast is madrid????

It shouldn't affect these matches. It can't be much slower than outdoor hardcourts
Except for Sveta, the rest all have good indoor results

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!

Re: how fast is madrid????

This kind of sounds like Rebound Ace, is that an accurate assessment? (Minus the sticky courts, and the high altitude makes it quicker through the air I'd imagine).

Hingis made the Japan final this year, she can handle it

Re: how fast is madrid????

So if the courts are like they are, it should favor Momo, Justine, Petrova, and maybe Hingis and Kuzy?
