the wimbledon of pre-2002 is not even close to the wimbledon of 2002 on. the speed difference was huge.

in summary:

1) if the grass had always been the speed of pre-2002 then someone like nadal would have had very little change of winning wimbledon multiple times (a fluke might have happened).

2) if the grass had always been the speed of 2002+ then guys like agassi and lendl would have won multiple wimbledons and a guy like sampras would have had much lesser success.
