Re: Nadal leads Federer 3-1 outdoor hardcourts, while Federer leads 3-0 indoor
This is because Rafa's game is aided by the weather. The wind, Rafa is still effective, especially in comparison to 95% of players. The heat, Rafa can wear down opponents with his spin, and his balls have more juice on them. In the humidity, Rafa's balls are heavier and difficult to handle. In the cold, courts are slower, which makes it difficult to hit through Rafa.
In a controlled area without the weather conditions, and the fact most indoor courts tend to play quicker/lower bounce compared to outdoor events, Roger has the clear advantage.
