Re: "Speed up the courts and general court speed Thread"

Top spin clay court players give Fed headaches. Well good ones anyway- Mantilla taught him a lesson, a past it Al Costa did him over in Rome in 04/05 not sure which and Guga kicked him out of Roland Garros- that was a clay great showing him who the boss was.

Even in 2009 Acasuso was a game away from taking a 2 sets to 1 lead on him despite being way past his best.

This is how Fed has benefitted- the sped up clay and lack of natural dirtballers with topspin who can grind him into the dirt.
