Re: week 1 olympic grass as fast as indoor grass?

I keep hearing this -- people are aware that the Olympic tennis is a one week tournament right? It starts on the Sunday/Monday I think and ends the next weekend. There's no "first week" grass. Potentially the first few days will be worse but the courts will only have best of 3 matches anyway rather than best of 5.

Not sure how worn down the grass will actually get by the SFs and Fs.... Also depends on how it's grown in the 3 weeks since Wimbledon.
