Re: Wimbledon Chat Thread: The Lawn of Dreams
^ The surface is slippery. Not allowing players to practice on the two main courts before the tournament is silly. And I hate to keep honing in on this, but giving players just two weeks to prepare for Wimbledon after a long clay court season is going to continue to have bad effects on this tournament. The game is different now. The top players are going deep in every event on every type of surface. Expecting them to be ready to play a major on a complete opposite surface two weeks later is absurd. Players are too good on every surface, and the game is more athletic than ever. Something needs to change.
