Or is change in direction more taxing on knees/ankles? I don't think you can slide much on HC either, clay is best for the joints. Conditions won't be slowed down, sponsors want longer rallies, longer game time and they shall have it. 90s was boring with all those unreturned serves and 3 shot rallies but now we have 40 shot rallies on 1st week of Wimbledon...dunno which is worse? Grass season is short because those courts are expensive to maintain...a masters in Queen's will be good for the sport. Even I'm not sure why carpet is injury prone. I always thought faster surfaces were easier on the knees and body. Though I know sliding and moving on HCs are bad for the knees. I think a masters in Halle would be better. Better facilities, roof, bigger courts I think. Plus Germany deserves a masters for all its tension following. They haven't had one since Stuttgart and Hamburg got relegated etc. Queens would be pointless, it's a waste to have a masters on the same surface and same city just a week or two before a slam. Plus the facilities and parking doesn't even match Halle. The only advantage it has is that it's more prestigious.
