Back to the second part of the analysis... First part was Vote the biggest victims of Surface slowness
I went for 2000 AO final, Agassi vs Kafelnikov, which proved to be a tougher nutt. Firstly, for the poor quality of the video (from YouTube), and secondly, for mostly shorter points.
Anyway... On that particular surface the ratio of ball speed before and after the bounce was 2.256, so actually that was more slowing than with today's surface
. Players styles wise, Kafelnikov's shots averaged at 2.181 times (variation from 1.779 to 3.073), while Agassi's averaged at 2.331 (variation from 1.698 to 3.562, so it was similar to Djokovic).
But while analyzing videos I noticed something interesting. As I said, they played shorter points, but not because of the greater speed, but because they would run for the ball a lot less then in today's game!
