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.
I can't tell a genuine Van Gogh from a fake one, not even if I get to study them for hours, but I know there are others that can. Your own inability does not prove conclusively that it is impossible, and so you should not make such sweeping statements.
