American tennis player Denis Kudla made a huge claim after his first round match at The All England Club as he says Wimbledon is slowest Grand Slam of the four Major events. Kudla, ranked at No. 111 in the world, made a great start to his Wimbledon campaign as he handed a straight-set defeat to Tunisian Malek Jaziri 6-4 6-1 6-3 to set up a second round meeting against top-seeded Novak Djokovic.
Kudla claimed the first break of the match in the seventh game of the first set and then held on to his serve to win the opener. World No. 100 Jaziri won the opening game of the first set but then lost the following nine games as the American took a 6-3 6-0 3-0 before finishing the job a couple of games later.
"Everyone thinks it's how big your serve is and coming to net; it's really the opposite. It's returners and movers who win on grass. This is definitely the slowest Slam, by far. These courts are so slow right now it's crazy," Kudla claimed post-match, per Ben Rothenberg.
