There's more grass in different areas that's for sure — they were pointing out how the game evolved from s&v'ers to baseliners and showing the wear patterns.

there Is more grass for the ball to bounce in the last picture than the previous ones. Is worn out grass faster or slower than green grass?
I would say depends how worn. Shorter grass would mean it plays faster, but hardly any grass means the ball comes into contact with dirt more making it play like a clay court.

Yeah, was wondering how having more green grass for the ball to bounce affected the game
