do you think nadal and djokovic would play on slick grass the same way they do on today's grass? i have heard all the slowing down of courts arguments enough already.....the first one who benefited from slow grass is's ridiculous how philippoussis's serves kept coming back that day in 2003 when the ball should have been barely visible on his first serve.....reason? they changed it to 100% in 2002 and henman went mad straightaway at the organizers.....

they all benefited from slowness.....
Are you really trying to say Federer has benefited from grass slowing down? How does a fast court player benefit from a court slowing down? How does a does a player who prefers low balls on the backhand benefit from higher bounces?

Every Nole and Rafito tard claims they would play differently if the courts were different. You make it sound like they are tennis magicians who click their fingers and tailor games to perfectly complement any conditions. Its especially laughable when you take into account how limited their games are. They have one type of game that they excel at and not much else. What would they do differently on old grass? Would Nadal suddenly turn into Wayne Arthurs on serve? Would Nole be a serve and volley master? I don't think so. Why do you think Agassi's career grand slam is so revered - because it was a fucken hard thing to achieve in the era he did it in. How many players were good at every slam pre 2003? Barely anyone. Why? Almost everyone played a similar game on each surface and did the best on the one which suited their game the most.
