The other side is everything was better in the old days, which isn't true either. Like anything some things evolve for the better and others for the worse. Sure there were actually varied surfaces that required different skills to succeed.
Faster surfaces were too quick at the time. This led to what we have now with homogonised surfaces, which has gone too far the other way. While good for the marketing department and business people for the ATP in increased money, has taken away certain aspects of surface specialisation. Now they play the same game on all surfaces barring the movement side.
irrelevant Nole would kill them.....vastly superior player than both
