And you also can't tell how high bouncing a court is.

You think one shot bounced high, but maybe Federer put a lot of topspin on that, so it would have bounced high on any surface.

Again, fuck off.
You can get an impression of the court speed by looking at if there's more or less pushing or winners on that court compared to a usual match of those players. But it's more difficult to say about the bounce by watching from TV.
