How fast should the courts be?

Should they all be fast?

Do we want to go back to 90's Sampras style tennis?
90s being all serve is overrated. Muster, Courier, Bruguera could all grind on the clay, Kafelnikov, Agassi and Courier could all play strong hardcourt games and Sampras, Ivanisevic, a twilight Becker and Rafter ruled the grass.

Speed up IW and Miami to medium pace, make USO fast again, speed up Canada to Cincy levels, slow down clay, speed up the grass, bring back carpet, there you go.

There needs to be a system that allows different game styles to be successful. Why do you think I haven't subscribed to the Dimitrov hype despite liking his game? Cause his finesse game doesn't give him a cat in hell's chance of reaching the top because of the speed of the courts.
