Rafa Not Happy At Olympic Set-up

It always makes me laugh when I see the words "Wimbledon fast grass".  It's not fast, certainly not in the way it should be.  Surface homogenisation gets worse with each passing tournament.  But Rafa ain't happy that, apart from the Gold Medal Match, all matches will be the best of 3 sets.

Is this fair? 

"That's makes the tournament a little bit more crazy. Everybody can win even more than on hard or clay, because playing best of three sets, the match can be decided in just a few points.

"So that's probably the negative thing. In every match, you are at the limit.

"I don't say it's a 'crazy idea'. But it is a little bit more difficult to predict what's going to happen."

Is that not want we want, unpredictable tennis?  Or should everything bow down to the top players?  I say no, the playing field should be level.  If players are as good as they are made out to be they should be able to find a way.
