rafa does not benefit from slowness as much as federer or djokovic......slow surfaces are an antidote to his top spin.....his forehands sit up and don't penetrate on slow courts.....on fast courts, they really take off and take the opponent out of position quickly.....
the only advantage he has on slow courts is his return of serve.....he gets slightly more time to return......as he returns with the wrong hand, his reflexes won't be as fast.....
