Djokovic and Nadal now have 5 combined Wimbledons just by being good enough to squeeze through the first week and then ballbashing on green clay at the final stages.

Yeah this is not classic grass court tennis anymore, but Federer's modern grass court game is working incredible well, so there might be some upcoming players in the future with that. 10 finals in 12 years is still a great achievement.
To be fair Djokovic is slightly changing his BH for grass, it sits down incredible good and it is more flat than his shots on clay.

EDIT: And return is so important on grass and his return is really a killer.

died in 2002 with the victory of the disgusting Aussie pusher

Hewitt - pusher
Federer - Servebot/ballbasher hybrid
Nadal - moonballer
Djokovic - grinder
Murray - pusher

serve and volley cannot be found.

Re: Is grass tennis r nished?

Novak and nadal ballbashin :superlol: Looks like this lost has really gotten to your head. By the way Novak rarely loses sets on his way to 2nd week. So saying he barely squeeze through is laughable.

I am just watching a pep lay of it and I don't know how you guys can say this. Grass has played like this since the grass type was changed and the grass started to get grown a bit longer. Just watching the replay thought. Djokovic played amazing here this year. If the grass is so slow why is Nadal getting pummelled early every year now ? Changing the grass back would make it even worse as the grass lasts longer now. I see brown patches at the baseline but further in the grass looks fine. Djokovic was hitting a fair few serves at 120 mph and some better than that. You guys just can't accept that he is not declining . Just give him some respect . Same amount of Wimbledon's as Murray and Nadal combined .

Yeah, for typical gloryhunter everything is finished and a dark age set upon it when his favourite isn't the one doing the winning :shrug:

How exactly? It was BORING....In the 90's, there were no rallies and just ace after ace...
