Feb 11, 2019, 10:45 AM

On this week's Serve and Volley, Nick Hilton and Pavel Linshits are runnings over the big stories from the last week and debating the contentious issue of court surfaces.

THE BASELINE: Bad line-calls in the Fed Cup match between GB and Greece, news from Montpellier, and a look ahead to Rotterdam and Dubai.

BACKHANDED COMPLIMENTS: Naomi Osaka: the big new thing in the women's game? What are her strengths and weaknesses? Can she dominate for the rest of the year?

COURTING CONTROVERSY: What's the best surface for tennis? Pavel rails against clay which Nick tries to fight its corner. Does the French Open have the best record of good players being rewarded, or is the wildcard nature of the hardcourt season better?
