    Good podcast guys, however I’d have to disagree with JJ that IW is the slowest HC on tour, I’d say Miami is a little bi slower.

      Agreed about Miami being a little slower than Indian Wells. Guess they are getting the players adjusted to the clay season on surfaces playing slow

        I wouldn’t be surprised if Miami ends up being a smidgen slower than Indian Wells. They’ve both been slow for many, many years (does anybody remember them being fast?). I still think Indian Wells is slower, but this were a Slow Hard Court Power Rankings, they’d probably be 1a and 1b, with Paris being the consensus third slowest.

        I wonder if you’re right, Master Ace, in terms of why these M1000 are so slow. Still, it’s a theory that makes sense, and tennis doesn’t make sense more often than not.

          Yes well nonetheless they are both very slow hard court these days, but even if that theory is correct, why is every other hard court this day just as slow. Really makes no sense.

          What is weird about Indian Wells and Miami being pretty much the same speed is why Murray does terrible in the desert and then goes on to Miami and makes a streak. It will be interesting to see if skipping Dubai helped him.

            IW is way quicker than Slowami.

    Do not pick Bautista-Agut to make a deep run in a Masters event especially after losing in first round to Odesnik
