Fed & Tsonga hamming it up. Fed taking 20 seconds to challenge the call and then smiling it off.
Then we will fight in the shade.

It's just a silly exho, means nothing. However, not sure how smart from Fed is to play 6 exho matches before the AO. He should be resting and then having some intensive training.

Alex - you wouldn't want that. There are stories of animals devouring their "owners" and spitting the bones out.  :gleam:

speaking of green, i think its time they have some indoor green clay events.
 
all these hard court events are too much. the sport is more demanding today than at any time in the past.
 
 
i have done a lot of playing on that green clay (har tru) surface. it is fairly fast.

I always wondered why they dont use har-tru at atp level at least in USA. Even Houston is on red clay.
