I believe something needs to be done. Serena's cooked her ankle twice now on that Plexicrap. I know I might be called biased because I stan for her, but good grief. What's it going to take? Another Mary Pierce-like injury to happen on this stuff before they do something? I want Rebound Ace back.
I agree about speeding it up. The slowing down has happened everywhere including Wimbledon for Heaven's sake. I think they've done it to accommodate clay specialists and the men's power game, hence these interminable 5 set marathons which have little to do with tennis, more stamina challenges.

Monica Seles Superstar. Her fans never forget.

Players I root for now: Heather, Laura, Lucie, Marion, Serena, Simona, Svetlana, Venus, Vika. And Caroline.
Doubles and Mixed Doubles are fun and underrated.
