I'm sure that there has been a thread before about that. But since the early 2000 they have slowed the grass at Wimbledon, it is now slower than hard courts from the general point of view. Venus doesn't even use the slice. So it's almost a contradiction why she fares much better at Wimbledon that at the US Open (or AO for that matter). She's no Sampras, she's no Nvratilova, but somehow grass and Venus click together. Technically I've always wondered why. She often seems so "effortless" at Wimbledon, whereas she always struggles and making it hard on hard courts. What struck me is that after her last Wimbly victory she said that she knows about the bounces on grass every time. Any clue ?
