Is Novaks best surface hardcourts or clay?
I think even though he won Wimbledon in 2011, its far to early to say that grass was his best surface, since traditionally its been his worst.
But im sort of confused after the 2012 Australian Open where everyone is suggesting Nadal has more chance of toppling Djokovic at Roland Garros should they meet there.
Hang on, doesnt anyone remember what happened last year in the masters series? It was actually Nadal running Djokovic very close in the HC encounters. Nole actually destroyed Nadal a lot worse on clay.
Infact Nadal limped through the clay masters and very early on in RG 2010/2011 looked terrible.
I for one feel Nadal has LESS chance against Djokovic on clay then he does on hardcourt. Especially now its clear that Novak is every bit as fit as Nadal. That 5 set factor wont come into it. Infact id go so far as to say id be very shocked if Nadal even forced Djoker to 5 at Paris.
"I did not play my best tennis, no? And..that is what enable him to win..to win this match no? "
- Rafael Nadal, ever so "humble", - press conference after shock 4 set loss to Robeen Soderling @ 2009 French Open 4th round.
