against Tsonga probably because of Tsonga's serve (but it was also true for prime Fed, not only for the old one), and still not sure because Tsonga would struggle to return Fed's serve on a quick court and he has more concentration lapses than Fed to lose his serve, but not against the other "big hitters" :

against them, a fast court is better for Fed to move them around.

Besides, even against Tsonga, it was visible last week that Tsonga had enough power to generate his own power through cold slow conditions whereas old Fed didn't have that power.

Fed prefers when the ball goes more easily through the air, esp. in his old age : in his young age, he had more energy to generate his own rhythm.

Maybe one could say that slow courts are not bad for old Fed, but slow balls are.

In Miami damp conditions, and in cold conditions on AO plexicushion, he's completely powerless.

On clay with light balls, he's much better.

ASI Director-General Gautam Sengupta said the list of India's treasures held abroad was "too long to handle" and there was a need for a "diplomatic and legal campaign" for their restitution from institutions, including the British Museum, the Royal Collection and the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

Re: Vote the biggest victims of Surface slowness

70+ votes to pink. 16 slams on slow surfaces and 1 slam on fast surface. MTF at its best.

Even though HC and grass has been slowed down, RG is still the slowest slam. Now get banned already, imbecille.
