We have moved on to the final part of the season for the calendar year.
Most of the tournaments are now played within closed roofs and on hard court surfaces. Indoor courts provide the most perfect, unbiased weather conditions for players to deliver the goods. There's no sun, wind or varying temperature. For the whole duration of the match, they aren't going to be affected by the elements of nature.
Mastering the indoor hard court requires an attacking style of tennis, with the ability to take the ball on the rise and hit it as flat as possible, since the surfaces are generally faster, and the ball moves quicker through the air. As a result, there is less time to make adjustments and movement becomes difficult.
However, there are a lot of players who've demonstrated amazing skills and technique to win matches within a closed roof, most of them exceptional hard court players.
Let's take a look at some of the currently active players who've done extremely well on this surface.
