I mean dont speed up the court because it's a characteristic for AO being a hard court slower than USO...

On top of Serena and Na's problems, Novak's had trouble with footing both tonight and against Wawrinka. Seems to be a bit slippery and/or sticky ...
It because of the shoes he uses. He said it during the Wawrinka interview that he shoes was very slippery.

No please... I am happy as long as Na reaching the final. I won't mind if they put the final match on daytime, though.

Re: Should The Australian Open Change the Surface Due to Risk of Injuries?

No. It's the players fault if they don't prepare properly. The court is grippy so I don't know why every player doesn't wear ankle strapping
I personally don't and I play at Homebush on a regular basis and have had no problems

Rebound Ace is slower than Plexicushion and the bounce is higher.
No way in hell is Rebound Ace slower than Plexicushion.

Errr... no. Rebound Ace was a substantially faster surface.

You're correct about the bounce being higher than Plexicushion however.
