Feels good, man, to watch something relatively fast,...

So I'm just sitting here watching Roddick/Vasselin, and it's just so refreshing to see a decently quick court, players actually have a chance of hitting winners and some nice volleying going on as well. What's your opinion? Feelsgoodman.jpg

Definitely. I always breath a sigh of relief when we reach the grass season... :)

Yeah, just a shame to see how slow Wimbledon is now. Halle and Queen's on the other hand :hearts:

The clay season is too long and too boring.

Nice to see lovely bh/fh winners getting what they deserve rather than slowing up on the clay and being returned.

shame there are no real 90s tennis masters to **** nadal on grass and show his 1 dimensional game up

but nole could bring back real tennis

and in a dream world fed would get back to 06 form and destroy nadal again

Djokovic has the worst net game of the top 5. There's a better chance to win the lottery than for Djokovic to bring back classic grass court tennis.

djokovic is the most naturaly athletic out of the big three (plus the scot)

federer (obviously) was a world class net player but didnt focus on it and is now ast his best

nadal had good hands but shit skils

murray was never happy at the net

nole's athleticism and raw talent make him potentially a very good net player

Novak's absolutely rubbish at the net. He hasn't got a clue tactically how to execute a game plan which includes coming forwards. I watched him time and time again concede points to Rafa at RG because he was too afraid to come in behind his shots.

No way could he do anymore at the net than he is currently.

Tsonga is probably the best chance of someone using serve and volley as more than a surprise strategy at Wimbledon.

Yup, the grass is playing nicely and looks amazing.

Good stuff =)

Djokovic is shit at the net. His athletic abilities allow him to get away with it sometimes, but overall, he's terrible.
Murray is great at the net, he has better touch at Nadal.
Nadal has good touch, but not amazing.
Federer used to have absolutely incredible net skills. Now, he's not as good, but he's still great.

Federer >> Murray >> Nadal >>> Djokovic when it comes to net skills.

No, Djokovic is not better at the net than Murray and Federer :haha:

As far as potential goes, Federer/Murray >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Djokovic/Nadal with Federer obviously far above Murray.

To make it clear: I'm fine with the grass but not with the OP.

Djokovic is my favorite of the 4 but is nowhere near the best volleyer. In fact, id say he's probably the worst. Murray and Federer both used to be better but are still quite good. Nadal almost always wins net points but usually comes in only on easy volleys so hard to judge

I am not holding my breath, after watching Mahut against Murray I come to the conclusion, that Queens, a tournament always faster than Wimbledon plays slower than ever. Best prove is the game between Murray and Mahut, both playing relatively long rallies from the baseline, although the French is meant to be an aggressive player. Djokovic, Nadal and his fans can sleep well now, they must fear nobody on such a surface.

Can anyone explain me how come Wimbledon grass looks so much worse then this? i mean there are spots which are clearly not covered by grass - its more like clay, but today we saw completely covered court on 10x lower tour what gives?
