Huge credit.

Why does it work?

Because Roger lets it work.

All Roger ever had to do was sit down with his coach and figure out a counter plan.
That never happened, not really.

Tennis is sport, sport is about winning and playing to your strengths ,not, playing to your opponents strengths. Doh.

If some unknown talent came out of some random tiny country (no chance to win DC) and won 20 slams, no one would give a single shit if that player didn't have DC. 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.
