I read that people are whining that 7 continued showing the Kyrgios match which was in the 3rd set and tight, rather than switch immediately to the Barty match which looked like being and was a bore.

Almost every tennis match is a bore. 

A match between two women could only be less so, if it was played in mud or jelly, without racquets and a ball, and the winner was the first to pin her opponent ... actually, make that best of 3 pins ... and grunting is allowed.

Green grass or green clay? Players comment on "slowest Wimbledon ever"

From Roger Federer to Karolina Pliskova, players haven't been shy in commenting on the surface speed at the All England Club.

By Cale Hammond

July 03, 2019


It’s no secret that the All England Club’s pristine grass courts have slowed down substantially over the years. The 2002 edition of Wimbledon marked the initial shift towards a slower speed, and the results were immediately apparent. 

One year after the 2001 instant-classic men’s final between serving stars Goran Ivanisevic and Patrick Rafter, the men’s final featured two baseliners, Lleyton Hewitt and David Nalbandian. This was the first Wimbledon final of its kind, and it was a sign of things to come. 

Now, it seems the courts are slower than ever, and the players have taken notice. 

Eight-time champion Roger Federer was quick to sound off on Centre Court's slower speed after his opening-round victory over Lloyd Harris.

“I just felt like it was slow, I couldn’t really have any impact,” he said. “I don’t think I had an ace in the first two sets maybe.”

Federer even went as far as saying Wimbledon is no longer the fastest-playing Grand Slam tournament.

“I definitely think Wimbledon has not been the fastest overall. If you look at rally length, US Open is shorter rallies on average than Wimbledon. That tells you the story a little bit.”

American Denis Kudla, who is something of a grass-court specialist, was shocked by the court speed this year.

"Everyone thinks it's how big your serve is and coming to net; it's really the opposite. It's returners and movers who win on grass. This is definitely the slowest Slam, by far. These courts are so slow right now it's crazy." -Denis Kudla, a grass lover, on #Wimbledon

Belinda Bencic, who triumphed as a junior in 2013 and excels on quick courts, also noticed a shift from her previous appearances. 

“I think the grass is higher,” she said in her press conference Tuesday. “I remember the serve was more effective the years before. Now it's like everybody can return it, just like on a hard court.”

The slower pace will reward elite returners who can handle the powerful serves that are muted by the court speed. Italy's Thomas Fabbiano, 5' 7'', has already taken out two of the games' biggest servers, Stefanos Tstitsipas and Ivo Karlovic, in consecutive five-setters.

Novak Djokovic, arguably the game’s greatest returner, appears to be the real winner. Anything can happen, but on a grass court that plays like a hard court, Djokovic will be close to unbeatable. 

American Sloane Stephens, who has historically struggled on grass, welcomes the change of pace.

“I played on the grounds earlier in the week," she said. "I thought they were super, super slow.” 

Karolina Pliskova, who has averaged over seven aces per match in 2019, seemed disappointed with the court speed after her first-round victory.

“The ball just stays, doesn't really go," she sais. "It doesn't really slide. Even for the serve, I thought if I still hit good serve, you can still have a point. It was more rallies than I thought there was going to be." 

Reilly Opelka, who won the junior tournament in 2015 and shocked Stan Wawrinka in five sets on Wednesday, could hardly believe how much conditions have changed, saying, “This year Wimbledon is playing as slow as I have ever seen a grass court.”

The points are longer and the rallies offer entertainment, but it remains a mystery why a tournament so steeped in tradition insists on drastically changing its signature surface.

Strange comment...ruined the game. 

They weren't here before and will be gone soon, the game doesn't go anywhere. Just do as many of us do, love your tennis, dont turn on the tv when they are on.

It is your choice to be outraged.

I agree with your assessment of those two but I don't think they have ruined the game, there are plenty of other players to watch.

What I don't understand is people saying Kyrgios makes the game interesting and they can't stop watching him. Also those who want him to win because he is Australian I am the opposite, cant stand watching the obnoxious grub for 30 seconds and hope he loses whoever he plays

It will be like last year. A Djokovic/Nadal semi and the winner of that will win the final easily.

Theatrics and bizarre press conference aside Nick Kyrgios must have played very well against world no 3 Rafael Nadal  to lose 3-1 with 2 of those sets being tie breakers.

Incredibly talented, I don't know about that. Has a lot of talent but so do many others

Anyway is an insignificant blip on the tennis radar, in a few years when he retires having achieved nothing he will be forgotten whilst those he jealously derides will be forever in the annals of tennis greats

A putrid spoilt brat, one thing they all seem to have in common is doting, adoring parents who believe theiir offspring can do no wrong

Blunt but well put Whale .

I plunged on Nadal and had many anxious moments . Krgios is a grub , but what a waste of natural talent.     .   He was a mosquito's dick from winning and i'd suggest his uncontrollable episodes beat him .

About as Australian as my Chihuahua , even so , how could anyone barrack for him.

I walk around like an 86 year old and get a quid out of several rackets.

Is it really that difficult to tell if you're not throwing the ball up the right way?Shocked I can tell where I am putting the ball in the ball toss and I'm ranked 7,526,779,191 in the world.
