Wimbledon is my favorite tournament, but it's really sucking lately. I might start liking the USO and AO better. I think the USO plays faster than Wimbledon. There's no doubt about it, the grass is slower and higher-bouncing. Really disgusting. We have clay-court tennis for 1/3rd of the season...can we please have real grass-court tennis -- not this green clay crap -- for at least 1 month? Nadal deserves credit for again getting to the Wimbledon final, and this time through tougher competition. However, he lost at Queens to Mahut, and that shows what happens to clay-court players on real grass. Federer, btw, used to play more net-tennis at Wimbledon (see Sampras match, and his first Wimbledon win), until they slowed it down. This of course isn't Nadal's fault, but Wimbledon's. The AO (the higher bounces of which supposedly favored Nadal) and the USO are what happen to Nadal on faster surfaces. In any event, those who said Nadal was "in Federer's head" are again proven wrong. Although Federer wasn't playing his best tennis, and Nadal was playing his best on grass, Federer was clearly the mentally tougher player, winning both tie-breaks.
