Re: Rank the the best players on the tour by surface

Clay:

1-Nadal
2-Djokovic
3-Federer
4-Del Potro
5-Berdych
6-Ferrer
7-Almagro
8-Murray
9-Monaco
10-Gasquet

Grass:

1-Nadal
2-Federer
3-Djokovic
4-Murray
5-Tsonga
6-Berdych
7-Del Potro
8-Haas
9-Ferrer
10-Gasquet

Slow hardcourt:

1-Djokovic
2-Nadal
3-Murray
4-Federer
5-Del Potro
6-Berdych
7-Tsonga
8-Ferrer
9-Tipsarevic
10-Isner

Fast hardcourt (this is mostly an hypothetical ranking due to lack of fast HC tournaments):

Can't really rank due to lack of fast hardcourt tournaments - even the fastest ones around are quite slow compared to a really fast hardcourt. If I had to guess, it'd be something like:

1-Federer
2-Djokovic
3-Del Potro
4-Berdych
5-Murray
6-Tsonga
7-Nadal*
8-Nishikori
9-Tipsarevic
10-Raonic

*bump Nadal to #1 if he exhibits his irresistible USO 2010 form, especially on serve

As for the Murray, Djoko thing; Murray possibly has the better game than Djoko, but between the ears Novak is superior and thats what makes him a slightly better player than Murray overall IMO.
5 slams to 1 prove otherwise.



Novak Djokovic nº1!

The Golden Era of Novak: Australian Open * Dubai * Indian Wells * Miami * Belgrade * Madrid * Rome * Wimbledon * Montreal * US Open * Abu Dhabi * Australian Open * Miami * Toronto * China * Shanghai * World Tour Finals 2012 * Australian Open 2013 * Dubai * Montecarlo * Beijing * Shanghai * Paris * WTF * Indian Wells * Miami * Rome * WIMBLEDON 2014 * AUSSIE OPEN 2015
Federer to Nole: "Amazing year. Amazing tournament. Amazing match. You are THE BEST!"

no, warlocq is best on purple clay

he generously tanks games, sets and matches on other surfaces just to make tennis more balanced

I meant currently but feel free to do an all-time list, I'd be interested to read it.

Lenders - I said faster rather than fast, re: hard courts

To what tournaments would that correspond nowadays so I can edit my post accordingly?

Re: Rank the the best players on the tour by surface

Del Goatro is the best player on any surface and cannot be beaten by two prime Noserers at once(unless injured or tired of course).

The -er just makes it relative. Unless you think all the hard surfaces are the same speed?

Tho' arguably the difference is so negligible now that it matters not.

The difference are very negligible for sure, don't think we can even separate slow and fast HCs on the tour anymore, the differences are negligible at best.

Ironically, the tournament that most played like a fast hardcourt this year was Madrid, which was not even a HC event.
