Re: Petition to Wimbledon Organisers to SPEED UP THE GRASS
I've always believed they purposely started slowing down the grass courts when Venus and Serena was winning all of the tournaments in singles and doubles at Wimbledon. This was their way of "leveling the playing field" because the other girls were having a hard time winning.
Also because the players from Spain and Russia (Marat) was complaining about the courts being too fast. So to get them to start playing at the all England Club they made changes in the grass. It's a shame because the fast courts are the best.
