same for Nadal also, despite being great at Miami and Indian Wells, is awful at AO

it's just a very weird slam, always has been

personally, I would rather see Wimbledon and Us Open sped up before AO
You go around making these claims but in terms of results, this is RF's best slam consistency wise (10 straight years with SFs if he makes the SF in 2013). He's won 4 times and lost one final compared to winning 5 times and losing one final at the USO. Not that much of a difference.
