The top management of ATP are always think(ing) about continuing playing more and more tournaments in this kind of surface. I think it's not a good way, because if I look the locker room and you look in the trainers' room, everybody have problems, no? On the knees on the foot, every player, no, here (pointing to the hip). So I think it's not the good way. It's the hardest surface for the body, that's for sure.
One major factor weighing in hardcourts favor, though, is the low cost of maintaining the surface which certainly makes sense when considering the number of tournaments around the world. Plus, it gives a true bounce which most ballers enjoy.
I don't see this changing in the near future. But if it did, I'd give my vote to more grass.
