He won seven titles in SW19, to set a new Open era record.

“I had the feeling even the last couple of tournaments I played that sometimes playing at the French Open might even be a little faster just from the balls and the courts. A lot of guys that are attacking and playing serve-and-volley, I think we have seen it over the last couple of weeks also, Feliciano Lopez or Gilles Muller all playing a lot less serve-and-volley.” Mischa Zverev picked up the theme after his first round match on Tuesday, an impressive 6-4, 6-3, 6-4 win over Bernard Tomic.

Despite the slower surface, Zverev showed that the tactic could still be adopted successfully, as he won 37/42 serve-and-volley points against the Australian — almost 40 per cent of the total number of points he won during the match.

Over the last few years, powerful baseline players have come to dominate in south-west London, with the switch to 100 per cent perennial ryegrass seed in 2001 contributing to the far slower playing surfaces.

And now, the last few remaining serve-and-volleyers fear that the famous playing style is on the verge of disappearing for good.

‘I feel like holding a trophy or doing well - it doesn't satisfy me anymore.

It's not there.‘I couldn't care less if I make a fourth-round or I lose first round. I'm going to play another 10 years, and I know after my career I won't have to work again.’After his defeat in one hour and 24 minutes, Tomic has another £35,000 to add to that retirement fund.

He has twice been fined for speeding and was arrested last year for trespassing and resisting arrest after a party in Miami. He also has a reputation for throwing in the towel, which has earned him the nickname ‘Tomic the Tank Engine’.

A spokeswoman confirmed: ‘The referees office has been made aware of the comments in his (Tomic’s) press conference.’ The decision on any fine will be made by the Grand Slam supervisors and Wimbledon tournament referee Andy Jarrett.

The Australian, who could face a heavy fine for lack of effort, also admitted he had taken an injury timeout purely to disrupt his opponent Mischa Zverev’s momentum.

The 24-year-old said he was no longer motivated by winning tennis matches, and was simply aiming to play for another decade to amass a fortune so he never had to work again.‘I felt a little bit bored out there,’ he said after a 6-4, 6-3, 6-4 defeat.

“But in the last 15 years the balls have changed, the courts, generally on Tour, are a little slower and guys are stronger.
