“Grass is for the cows.”
– Ivan Lendl on skipping Wimbledon in 1982 to instead take a vacation.
March 6th, 2011
This match will be right after Wimbledon, so hopefully Courier and the USTA don’t screw up and choose a fast hard court or indoor surface. Wherever this match is held, if the U.S. can dial back the clock to 1980 and hire someone who did groundskeeping work at Wimbledon 30 years ago, a slick old-school grasscourt will see the U.S. beating Spain.
