What surfaces are Madrid and Beijing 2009?

If Madrid is hardcourt...



That would be horrible to have a hardcourt in the middle of clay season.

===

I personally think IW should be grass (just so that there can be more grass court tournaments) or it can be left as hard, Miami should be green clay (to transition better from hard to clay), Madrid should be red clay, and China can be indoor carpet or indoor hard.

Venus Serena JJ Bethanie Vania Naomi
Petra S. Peng S. Zhang Su-Wei Vera Cici
Vesnina Sveta Crawford McHale Franny Zarina Sloane
Lepchenko Min Garbiñe

Kokkinakis Pospisil Coric Nishikori Berdych Huey Shapovalov
Sock F. Lopez Isner Murray Tiafoe Dmitrov Monfils Thiem Roanic Tsonga

Re: What surfaces are Madrid and Beijing 2009?

I think that Madrid is outdoor clay, and Beijing is outdoor hard, but I am not 100% sure.

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

I think Madrid will be indoor and outdoor clay as the roofs can close.

The HK surface isn't Rebound Ace when AO played on it


Inspiration is for amateurs
