Actually they do. He probably knows more about the game and the players than everyone on this forum put together.

BTW, are you sure he only watches tennis one month per year – you do know he has a tennis academy right?

Federer will probably adapt, Djokovic might be affected due to reduced returning ability as well as smaller racket head, Murray should be ok, Tsonga may excel, Berdych would probably be dreadful as he'll lack control, Ferrer would still run and retrieve and suffer less from lack of spin, Del Potro won't be able to fire off bullets with wooden rackets.

Tipsarevic and Isner I am not so sure about.
Rafael Nadal is one of the best volleyer's on tour.....

how embarassing, trying to attack Nadal always but failing when you get the chance... I mean it would be one thing to comment on his lack of spin with wooden rackets and how his serve might be even a bigger weakness than it already is if forced to use wooden, but his volleying? do you know what you are talking about at all?

Show me one point where Nadal has made a very difficult volley when he hasn't chosen to come in himself. This is tardish behaviour. I am not attacking him, just stating my opinion. If you don't like it, don't try to BS me with "attacking" and "best volleyer on tour". Keep that for CD. Show me some hard proof. As far as I'm concerned, he's a baseliner who puts away easy volleys. The onus is on you to prove me wrong as that's his accepted game.

The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.

Fed, Nadal and Djokovic would still be top 3.

He might, but you obviously don't. Nadal one of the best volleyers on tour take of your fanboy glasses for a moment. Nadal is a decent volleyer but he only comes in on easy shots and his punch volleys are not impressive at all. His drop volleys are good but that's about it. There are loads of guys who are better at volleys than him but I guess you only watch tennis when the top 2 are playing.

Of those in the Top 10 currently, I can see Federer, Murray, Berdych (who'd be a serve-and-volleyer), and Tsonga being about the same. Tough to picture players like del Potro and Isner even playing the game.

Djokovic would likely adjust his game to be in the top 10. Nadal would have the endurance of Borg but he'd actually be on the same level as Ferrer due to how spin is such a major factor.

I dont know about Nadal but i think he will be a bit lesser borg, but still on top of tennis and maybe dominate French still, cant see him winning other Slams. Djokovic depends on what style he plays cause he has change his playing style a bit, think he will do well. Likes of Federer, Berdych, and Roddick i think will dominate. Ferrer and Monaco i think can do well as the can handle low balls well.

I would also say Federer and Murray.

How Rafa would do is anyone's guess because his topspin forehand would be simply impossible to hit with a wooden racquet.
