I'm just curious as to what kind of player an indoor surface would suit best. I hear Myskina plays well in indoor tournaments but I see Venus and Mauresmo also do very well in them and none of these players have similar styles so how exactly does indoors play, and does it pretty much classify as the same as carpet? Thanks :wavey:

I think for myskina indoor surface works well coz shes fast and even tho she doesnt hit hard she uses pace of ball to take it on rise to hit powerful shots...

i think most indoor events now are on hardcourt, not too many on carpet but i'm not certain on that. carpet the ball stays low so maybe someone who is pretty good on grass should do decent on carpet. counter punchers probably do a bit better as well, as mentioned about myskina taking it on the rise, using the opponents power and pace off the court to help get a little bit extra on it.
