I remember McEnroe being asked what he liked best, grass or hard court. He replied, "I don't know, I've never smoked hard court."

Re: Weird gravity change on Australian Open Ballcourt!!!! Sharapova finds dead spot - check out the video!!!
It didn't roll off I suspect due to the type of material the court is made from, it'll be a lightweight fabric rather than a plastic or stony material. Hence it has less solidified force to repel the ball. A bit like trying to make a tennis ball bounce off a Bed Mattress compared to a Driveway.

That does not explain zero movement--ZERO. How unlikely is that!?!?!?!?!

In all seriousness, it did look as if someone is underneath with a vacuum and just sucking the ball in as a hoax.

Actually, I was wondering who all these guys in suits were that came to look at this spot and later drilled the holes. I don't know, but maintenance guys usually don't wear suits, also struck me as funny.

YouTube is being blasted now with videos about this....


 Quoting: Babsi


Personally, I think it is a big deal. If not, we would see this type of activity all the time...and we don't.
 Quoting: SickScent


Look closer!Slow it down,frame by frame if you can.
The first bounce hits the ground and then seems to dissapear behind someones leg-there is NO indication at all that the ball has bounced back up!
NOW,look very closly when the ball is bounced for the second time-This shot has DEFINATELY been manipulated somehow-It looks like a hologram has been installed into the picture-YOU CAN SEE THROUGH THE BALL and the bounce sequence is very staggered and out of sync!
But theres more! and this is the most telling that the shots have been manipulated somehow:-
AFTER the second "bounce" of the ball WATCH THE SHADOW!
According to the shadow on the ground,the ball is about to be bounced FOR THE THIRD TIME - AND NOTHING HAPPENS,the shot just stops,goes back to the people on the court and there is absolutely no sign of another "bounce" being performed or having been performed.
It's hard to explain but please watch VERY CAREFULLY-it's all there and it's all VERY telling.

Would that be a gravity loss, or an area of higher gravity? I would think with gravity loss the ball would bounce higher.

Sounds like interesting observations - unfortunately I don't have a software to slow down the video and watching it normal, I can't see and confirm what you are saying.

What happened is that the stifling temperatures in Melbourne caused a heat bubble filled with air to form under the surface of the court. It's the same concept that causes crust bubbles to develop on edges of pizza slices. As the Mirror reported, workers came out and drilled two small holes in the court, which let out the air. Order, and gravity, was restored.
 Quoting: Final..Frontier

That was just the 'cover' story.
