Most indoor courts are super fast but the YEC in America for the last couple of years were very slow - so what are the courts like in 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

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

I think it will - the slower the better for Hingis imo

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

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

Well likely not Kuzy.
She just goes for the kick serve 8 out of 10 times.
That can become predictable especially indoors.

A high-bouncing court means a slower game overall - which is perfect for Justine and Martina. They can use their variety of shots to great effect because they have time to set them up.

Power players like Maria will have to hit much harder, and it could be a disadvantage should the match be a long one.

I know but Berdy does not like piggys lol, haha I dont like Nadal but I do respect him. Why is he associated to pigs? What's the anology?

I still believe Hingis will struggle to win a match against the players in her group. Henin and Mauresmo are simply far superior athletes, She might be able to take a set away from a rusty and in poor form Mauresmo of late.
