Is the slowing down of surfaces a good thing for tennis ? There are a few different opinions about this . One school of thought feels it's a bad thing because the serve and volley game is dead. Another school of thought doesn't like it because their favorite players lose on slow surfaces Another school of thought feels that all the surfaces have become the same and you don't have four unique surfaces anymore. And another school of thought feels that tennis has never been this exciting . The technology increased the power to such a degree that the game became to fast.
