Nope. Still embarrassing.

Yeah, fair enough, I agree with everything you've just said, but the truth is, the men's grass court tennis has basically become clay v2.0.

Long gone are the days of the explosive Sampras, Ivanisevic, Becker, Edberg, etc, type-tennis... it's all gotten so slow, it's really a great pity the ATP decided to take that month of grass and serve-and-volley play away from us - especially since they had the rest of the year to enjoy the whole stick to the baseline thing.

Basically, I miss my old Wimbledon...
