    Hey JJ, I was doing some research on the ITF website and checking out court speeds and what not in relation to Miami and Indian Wells and also looked at Cincy and Shanghai since you said that you thought that Shanghai was faster than Cincy.

    Indian Wells is down to Medium-Slow whereas Miami is put down as just slow. So Miami is indeed slower than IW…
    Cincy and Toronto are both Fast and Shanghai is Medium Fast (shows why Murray and Novak do so well there) so just clearing up what you said in your previous comment that you thought that Shanghai was faster than the American courts prior to the US Open.

    Court speeds are really interesting to discover on the ITF website and although I don’t trust it a whole lot (i.e they put AO down as Medium-Fast when it plays a tonne slower and also the US Open is put down as Fast when it should be put down to Medium-Fast, the surface has been slowed a tonne in the last few years…)

    Anyway just wanted to point that out as to Djokovic’s dominance on hard courts, couldn’t post it on that particular post as it wouldn’t load so sorry for the irrelevance on this one. So Djokovic yes is a master on hard courts blah blah blah but a lot of that has to do with the surface speed just like Murray.

    Good job on the live blogging btw, what a shock to see Hewitt get the win over Isner, pretty brutal season for him already.

    Harrison still has a long way to go. However, I think he is hyped more than he should be as he do not have a signature win,IMO. Stephens is dealing with growing pains of being ranked higher than 30 especially stopping S Williams Slam streak at Melbourne
