tell me this. In what way is Wimbledon, the most prestigious and historical tournament in the world (arguably at least), different than Clay? Or how about.. Miami or Indian Wells? How is it any different?
As far as I know and I am not even sure of this, the ball bounces a tad bit lower. I mean not really too with all the topspin.
So basic question is, are you happy to have the most prestigious and the only different tournament (no other main tournament is played on grass).. the so called only dfferent tournament with the unique surface to play exactly the same as 85% of the rest of the courts?
I know I don't.
The courts were fast, but with racqut technology that would have evolved. It could have remained a fast court while still gettign in more interesting tennis because of the better technology to return and such. Now its just like every other court in the world. I mean 30+ shot rallies? That's perfect clay court material right there - and that was between Safin and Lopez, two hard hitters who should be more likely to end shots sooner even on slower surfaces.
