    Which event was the breaking point in court speed?

    Some myopic administrators thought that relentless baseline rallies make the game more watchable than a more balanced game - they were wrong in my opinion! Edit: Corrected to 'they were wrong in my opinion'

    Nadal has a winning record in tournaments on all surfaces against Djokovic
