Nah, this latest AO wasn't faster than the USO of the 2000's. Faster than everything in the 2010's except AO 2017? Sure.Not sure how old you are, BUT perhaps until this AO none of these players have ever even seen a fast court.
And let's be honest, they weren't that fast......just faster than the slow crap that we've seen for the last 20 years.
Even Wimbledon hasn't been fast for ages/decades.
