Thanks. I guess the game was slower back then even if the courts were faster. I am going to watch some youtube clips now
Do you think Fed and Nadal were able to do it because now the game is faster but the courts slower? So, there is a balance. Maybe after Borg and pre Nadal the game got faster and Wimbledon was still fast while Roland Garros was still slow and so the double was harder to complete?
