Better? Parqueeeeet!

Novak Djokovic is none-too-pleased about the court set up for this week's first-round Davis Cup tie between Serbia and Belgium. Apparently the clay was poured on top of a parquet floor -- what could possibly go wrong? From his Facebook page:
Anyone remembers this guy? Miljan is now proud father of two beautiful girls :) Missed him in Australia, but he is back! We are both very careful and taking extra care about my body because the conditions for play are quite dangerous not only for me and my team, but also for the hosts. I am certain that clay court had to be better, although I do believe that people from organization did their best. Unfortunately, sometimes that is not enough and now we are all facing a very tough challenge ahead of us - how to avoid getting injured. Health should be everyone's priority and I am sad that this weekend we will not be able to perform a good quality tennis for the people who looked forward to this tie and bought tickets.
