Yeah, Baker's game does not seem to translate nearly as well to hard as it does to natural surfaces. I haven't much of him recently but hopefully he can give the Frenchie a fight. Still, the most obvious and logical answer in Gasq in 2.

The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.
