Isnerīs best surface?

What do you think

Options: i separate HC, because they are many types

indoor HC:

advantages: indoor conditions perfect for guy like him, no distructions when he is serving or going for big FH, mostly faster surfaces
disadvantages: mostly lower bounce indoors, he is 2nd tallest guy so it is not good in rallies for him. Also indoors conditions can favour other guys with big serve, agressive tennis- Tsonga defeated him in Paris with the same weapons John can use

outdoor slow HC:

advantages: slow HC together with higher bounce generally means John has more time for his movement, return, deffense, ball is jumping to his striking zone.

disadvantages: his serve can be less effective when going for pace-raw speed, howewer his kick serve is jumping higher and is more effective. Also in rallies he canīt hit through opponents o easily and in rallies.

outdoor fast HC

advantages: his serve can get him more free points, his FH can dictate easily, can hit through opponents easily, quicker rallies on his own serve.

disadvantages: he has less time for setting up points in rallies, less time for his movement and deffense. Other guys can benefit more from their own serves and can dictate in rallies easier after their own serves.

clay

advantages: has enough time for setting up points, high bounce - ball is jumping to his striking zone, enough time for movement, deffense, his footwork on clay is getting better
disadvantages: can be forced to long rallies, make more errors, because game is slower and other guys can get more balls back than he is used to, also his serve is less effective

grass

advantages: his serve can be very effective, if he dominates rallies, can hit more winners in rallies than usually. Can play at the net, use more volleys.

disadvantages: lower bounce can trouble him in rallies, also his ROS is worse on grass than on other surfaces. Slice can bother him, both on serve and on groundstrokes.

Outdoor hard. I think indoor isn't that good, he needs to play too lot of tie-breaks. He isn't a grass court player neither and well.. he was good against Federer on clay but that was indoor. I think outdoor clay isn't that good for him.

Never ever give up

Re: Isnerīs best surface?

You will be surprised, I don't count on Isner on outdoor clay. Maybe indoor, sadly there are indoor clay in Davis Cup only. Maybe Madrid isn't that terrible.

Never ever give up

Re: Isnerīs best surface?

Taking Nadal to 5 at FO is proof enough for the American clay courter.

So I was recently informed that my signature was empty and needed a life affirming quote from an inspirational figure like Shakespeare or Oscar Wilde...

When I die my mates had better not tweet some cheesy crap like I'm watching over them or some jazz. Watch your train-wreck lives? I'll take my chances in hell.

Yeah but.. look the rest of the clay season.. Lost to Chela twice very easily, 4-6, 1-6 and 1-6, 6-7. Lost to Mello in two, Stakovsky in three and beaten Lindell and Fish, it's his last clay season. Plus Houston, beaten Zeballos but lost to Karlovic.

Never ever give up
