Those Slazenger balls have been shit for a few decades now.

The slowing of the courts really only started after that 94 final with Sampras and Goran. They slowed it slightly each year since then, before converting to the different grass in 2001. The 2000 final under the night with Sampras-Rafter sort of closed an era, and the 01 event was very transition, with Fed beating Sampras and Ivanisevic finally winning that epic.

Then from 02 to present, it has been all baseliners winning Wimbledon. Except Fed in 03 who still came to the net.
