Wimbleton has a fast playing surface, with an inconvenient bounce. Skilled servers and vollyers are at a huge advantage.
Only one serve-volleyer - Ancic - reached the semi-finals this year. That's as many as in the FO.
The most you can say is that grass gives serve-volleyers the fair chance they are denied on the other surfaces in the modern game.
