Re: Is Murray starting to become Djokovic's Nemesis? How should Djoker deal with Murr

Djokovic benefits from slow surfaces (although not as much as Nadal), but saying that Federer benefits more from slow surfaces than Nadal is just...

Slow surfaces are CRUCIAL for Nadal, and not just for return of serve. The main reason why he DEPENDS on slow surfaces is that it gives him TIME (get in position, defend, grind, tire opponents, play behind baseline). Take the time away from Nadal and you take away his game.
