Basically calling grass and wimby a shit :worship::worship:
I'm sure many many many players agree with him.:angel:
Grass is easily the most boring, injury-prone and pathetic surface in tennis.
And Wimby :tape: those ridiculous archaic traditions, pathetic schedule and typical british snobbery. It has to be replaced by Rome, and whole grass should be removed IMO like carpet earlier. Wimby looks like Nokia 3310 to Vertu or Buick to Jaguar even compared to some masters :tape:

Shame no one cares about his opinion as he has done nothing noteworthy in his career.

Move on.

It's not like he's doing much more on clay and hard these days. :lol:

I'm sure it will hurt less when he picked up his £30k cheque for his 1R loss in a few hours.

He is only mad because he is useless there.
It's not like he is God of tennis on hard or clay. But I think if some of the surfaces will be considered to remove anytime soon that would be grass..Pretty obvious that this short grass season is pain in ass for many players :shrug:

Paire is embarrassing sometimes (not particularly embarrassed by this, it's his opinion, and I'm sure some players feel the same about the other two surfaces or grass). Great game to watch, but it's attached to an absolute headcase who does fuck-all with that talent :eek:.

What's funny is that grass should be great for Paire - what other surface is going to reward him so much for his love of drop-shots and net play? :shrug:

That and that he actually plays on the grass courts makes his opinion more objective and valuable than the opinion of you or most other MTFers :p

If it weren't for Wimbledon, grass would be wiped out ages ago. Why do you think it's basically down to just 1 big grass tournament per season.
I vote for replacement by parquet!

p.s: :lol: at poll options :)

He is also not the only one who said something similar towards grass. There were also players who said that it is for cows and similar things. So yeah, players have problems with that. But, to be honest, I would be disappointed if grass disappears completely. I am enjoying grass tennis (not servebotting, to be clear). Maybe extending the season would help players to adapt for it, but dunno if that will happen, even if this year there is one more week of that.
