Ive been saying this for about 18 months now. A friend of mine who is a sports physician said he believes Filip played way too much on clay when he first started playing, which put strain on his body, leading to injuries, and as a result, his development has been harmed. It's much worse for a player to be injured when they're younger, these are crucial, formative years. He's pretty much playing at the same experience level as players 2 years younger than him now, and at 20, that's a huge difference.
