I'd like faster hardcourts and grass but I wouldn't have had anything against Raonic beating Fed.

There are neutral fans here.

Btw. Raonic would've still lost. He couldn't have broken Fed's serve.

Hi rejoiner

Also that wouldn't happen, because unlike the other top players Federer is versatile. He can play almost any tennis style to a high level, its why he's the goat.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Murray - The Tactician

No he cant. He was schooled by Berdych on fast court 4 months ago at the US slam.

Yeah, one match defines a player. Watch Federer in his early 20s then come back to me.

Its true that Fed has lost some of his explosiveness with age, but I think credit should be given to Berdych who is capable of a very high level of play on fast courts. Would've been a slam winner in the 90s.

In his early 20's pink often lost to fast court players like Nalbandian. As surfaces got slower Nalbandian started declining and pink rose. Berdych, Nalbandian, Ancic, Tsonga suffered the greatest from slowness of surfaces. Tsonga was good attacking player initially when he broke out in 2008 but had to convert into another defensive player which he is not good at to match with slow courts.

He has a point about Blake. Every time I watched Blake in his prime I could think to myself 'Gee, just stop pushing and take some risks for once'. Being too conservative with his shotmaking/not having the guts to go for his shots has always been Blake's downfall

MTF games titles:

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (3): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013 and Geneva 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 1 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers; 7 finals lost

The point is top players like pink become vulnerable to losses before Quarterfinals if courts are sped up. They may not also face each other as often as a result. All that is not profitable for the organizers.

Not so sure about that. He likes fast courts. On the other hand, Nadal loses before QF even on slow courts, I'm scared to think what would happen if the courts were faster.

Nadal loses because of his right knee. Not because of slow or fast courts.

I would go as far as saying Nadal has never lost a match while being injury free.
