We can also conclude that there were many players in the 90's who were dangerous on grass and capable of taking out more expected players, whereas today it doesn't take a genius to predict 90% of the matches at hand.
even roddick?

yeah grass was still relatively quick in 2004 and 2005 compared to today, but I can't help but think that a big server like him would've done even better in the 90s before any decrease in court speed - which started in 2001
