or maybe, just maybe, someone clever figured out that it's going to get ridiculous with 140+ mph serves on courts as fast as they were before? maybe? do you really miss watching someone practicing serves for few hours?
You seem to think that 'speed up the courts' means 'make everything as fast as Wimby grass in the early 90s'. There wasn't anything wrong with the speed of hardcourts during the early 00s, the AO and USO weren't serve fests back then.
Or here's a novel idea - speed up the courts substantially, but also take away the second serve. Why do players need it anyway? It was invented way back when the game was first designed, because you had uneven flannel balls and rickety old wooden racquets, and serving was so unpredictable that you often needed two goes to get it in. Nowadays it's totally unnecessary, the first serve is just a chance at a free point.
