As someone just said, one long rally out of, say, every 20 points is OK, because it is unexpected. But when you have many long rallies in the same match...you start to get bored quickly.

Even in the fastest indoor carpets in the 90s, sometimes there were some long rallies (look at Sampras-Becker 1996 WTF final), and they were "great" because they were "rare".
