Yes, I agree it's still fast, but it clearly has firmer and higher bounces now than before. In September 2001, Wimbledon changed its grass-court surfaces from 70% Rye and 30% Creeping Red Fescue, to 100% Rye. 2002 saw the slowest and strangest Wimbledon I've ever seen, with a lot of upsets, serve and volleyers struggling, and 2 baseliners in the final (including a Wimbledon debutant), but it seemed to stabalise in the years after that.
