I've checked these two categories the last 2 years and Alex has consistently been on these lists. Why isn't his return game more talked about? Is it because they blindly just see him as a claycourter? Or is it just our American commentators ignoring the fact that Alex isn't your typical claycourter anymore?

Perhaps because he really doesnt have a spectacular return, he gets almost everything back & then finishes out things with rallies.

Btw, Alex was never your avarage clay-courter

Tennis, Ergo Sum.
