LONDON (Reuters) – Tennis balls are getting heavier at grass-ball play at the All England Club in the wake of a slower match at Wimbledon, not on the playing field, Rafa Nadal, the third seed, said on Saturday. .

Many players have complained about the slowdown in Grand Slam this year. Roger Federer said that Wimbledon "was not the fastest," while Caroline Wozniacki complained about court turf on Court Two after her third lap.
Nadal, who beat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-2 6-3 6-2 to qualify for the fourth round, did not encounter any problems with the surface, but stressed that the humidity on the ground was a determining factor. .
"It's not the surface. These are the balls a little heavier. Sometimes it's normal because we play on grass, "Nadal told reporters.
"The balls are a little wet, it's part of the game. It's true that sometimes the balls are heavier than the other events here.
"I think bullets are always heavy here at Wimbledon, right? It's something that, in my opinion, is the key that sometimes slows down the game. "
When pressed to the surface, Nadal said he found no difference.
"Honestly, the surface for me is the same, as always," added the Spaniard. "I have been playing here since 2003, I do not see any difference in surface.
"When I hear people say," It's very slow, faster, slower than ever … "every time I hear the same thing. Sometimes the feelings of the players are not exactly the same.
"For a player who plays very well, they can feel that the thing is perfect. For a player who does not play as well, he feels slower or too fast because it is difficult to find the right moment. "
Nadal will face Portuguese Joao Sousa or British Dan Evans in the fourth round next week.
