nadal would himself like the surfaces faster.....his top spin forehands won't sit up to get spanked on fast courts and his serve slides away on slick surfaces making it more difficult.....he is at his best when on the run and defending.....slow surfaces don't benefit him as much as people think.....

he is a player who got rid of karlovic on fast grass of queen's club as early as in 2007.....he will still have some trouble returning players like karlovic on fast courts but he proved in the past that with sustained match play on fast courts, he is capable of winning.....

for nadal if the court is faster,

serve: asset

ros: liability which can be overcome upon practice and match play.....

forehand: asset

backhand: real asset, they will push him to pass off that wing and
he's at his best doing that.....if you give him time, he will dump it in the net......

attack: neutral

defense: should we even talk about the greatest retriever ever's defense?
