Otherwise it only suits Federer and specialist journeyman.
Grass doesn't even suit Djokovic, and that's why he's still having to save match points just to beat 50-year-old-Federer....

Obviously we have 2 hardcourt slams already, so I suggest extending the clay season into England.

Novak has the best serve/return combo. Grass suits him very nicely, actually. Also, he beat Federer much easier at Wimbledon in 2014 and 2015. Novak played very bad (by his own admission) in the 2019 final, but still won anyway. 3-0 in Wimbledon finals against Federer.

Ridiculous and will never happen.
Imagine this as the new Channel Slam?
The grass court season is already very short, there is no grass masters and also very few DC matches on grass anymore.
Players need to be able to adapt to all surfaces and conditions.

No, all the other tournaments in the world should instead be played on grass. Wimbledon should publicly announce that the tennis we gave to the world has degenerated due to the other surfaces and outside influence and take it back.

Why even play it. Just play Roland Garros back to back in the summer from now on.

I'm not a big fan of grass court or Wimbledon but come on, we need it. We actually need a grass masters to go with a grass slam.

English will not watch clay, and rightfully so.

It produces slow and uneventful tennis, in the eyes of the Anglosphere.

IMO Grass allowed successes to servers like Ivanisevic Rafter or Sampras but also multiple successes to Clay players like Borg or Nadal.....

So this traditional surface is quite fair.
