Has anyone actually measure the so called slowness of the court, or is this just an empty talk based on subjective opinions?!
I mean, we are talking about pure physics here, speed is a measurable physical phenomenon...
The Hawkeye system can definitely prove or disprove this.
Or the frame-by-frame video analysis...
Does anybody actually have some hard data on this matter?
General consensus is that the surfaces of most major tournaments in the world were slowed down heavily between 2001-2004 allowing baseliners to ascend to the top. Which is true. The slow trend has continued to date. With the Big 4 defending better than any players in history, the surfaces appear to be playing even more slower and driving some tards nuts. The surfaces are just the same as they were in 2003 or 2004. The top losers are lesser ranked players.
