federer would be like sampras (not winning in clay maybe) but nobody of this player would be like agassi , maybe djokovic but I don`t know.

federer in your opinion was benefited on clay , one surface but the others players were more benefited with the hardcourts , grass and indoors.

federer would be the same titles or more in not clay courts and other players like rafa maybe never titles in wilbledon or us open

I do not think Federer has a problem to play on clay at all he is actually quite good. The problem was Rafa.To win against Rafa on clay you should be someone like Soderling,Rosol tall and very strong.

I am looking the match beetwen ferrer and stepanek for the davis cup and the court it`s very similar than the us open before 2010 or 2011 , with more faster courts the game has much more variety , I mean players agreesives like stepanel and defensives like ferrer can use their weapons and win.

ferrer won his first masters1000 in paris and against a great server and agressive player like janowicz , played the masters cup`s final in shangai , defeated nadal in a fast us open and more

if ferrer can....nadal or nole no???????

This DC court is fantastic, pretty fast court - something like this would be great in more indoors events. BTW this is only Stepanek-Ferrer guys with ,,no power,, i think in Berdych-Almagro match with big FH´s and 1st serves in 210-215kph we will see how quick this court really is

this is the ideal court for the us open , before 2010 or 2011 was very similar by now it`s a shit.

It's not that fast the DC court but the bounce is low which isn't a bad thing.

If not for Raf, Fed might well have accumulated 5 RG titles. Yep, he's a very decent clay courter and might well be among the best ever.

This court reminded me of the Rotterdam court- similar colour and similar speed.

You just proved my point. Federer doesn't face the match ups on clay that give him fits apart from Nadal. Look he struggled against proper clay players when they were past their peak, before Nadal was on the scene.

Why cause the surfaces are so homogenised, hardcourt tennis played on all surfaces with the movement being the only difference and who was the best at that?

Top spin clay court players give Fed headaches. Well good ones anyway- Mantilla taught him a lesson, a past it Al Costa did him over in Rome in 04/05 not sure which and Guga kicked him out of Roland Garros- that was a clay great showing him who the boss was.

Even in 2009 Acasuso was a game away from taking a 2 sets to 1 lead on him despite being way past his best.

This is how Fed has benefitted- the sped up clay and lack of natural dirtballers with topspin who can grind him into the dirt.

It's not the pace of the courts so much with Fed on clay, it's more the lack of the players playing that specific style of game as rocketassist said.

What is the difference between Hamburg and RG? Different clay or something else
