Everything looks faster when Nadal is not around.

He looked deep into his eyes and said, "You're perfect."

"No, I'm not. But with you, I don't even care."

that is true as well.....you need to win each point two times on an average against rafael.....fed often hits 5 winning shots in a point and still discovers a way to lose the point......

Re: TENNIS RUMOUR : Australian Open 2013 tennis courts to play a little faster ?

Considering the domes and the expected heat, if the courts were faster (still a big if at the moment), I'm sure it would suit Fed. Roger likes faster and indoor courts, for sure.

The question is: Would Fed be in that position to win anyway, against a hot Novak or Murray? You can argue, that was his lucky Wimby last year, when Rafa got knocked out, and then facing a game, but Green Murray in the final.

And if the courts were actually faster, you can't rule out a Jerzy Janowicz , Tomas Berdyh, Juan Martin Del Potro or Joe Wilfred Tsonga spoiling the FED party as well.

Roger has shown he's susceptible to big hitters on faster courts, in recent years.

Anything to prevent that travesty of that mens final from last year.... At least Novak won

ITF: “She is the sole author of her own misfortune.”

@ the poster who says that Federer is stronger on slower courts.

Quote:
19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

Congrats Renochka.

Also maybe Shitra won't lose in the first round.
