Why so bitter? Oh, wait, you joined MTF in June 2008
It must have been tough 4 years for you
On topic, I also have been watching tennis since the mid 90's and I can't agree more with the OP that some of the courts have really been slowed down throughout the last decade. But to claim that this was done just to favor Nadal can only be a product of hateful, bitter, and delusional brains! I chuckle nowadays when a handful of players S/V but let me tell you - their volleying skills are nowhere near the volleying skills of the past generations!
I believe that the fast courts will make a comeback but when will that happen only the ATP people know.
