Tsonga and berdych (perticually Tsonga) appear to be the two main losers imo

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...

Maybe he wouldnt benefit if he was in 2004-2007 but now with his age i think this courts are helping him, he can defend well against ballbashers most of the time and run down a lot of balls. If couurts where any faster i think Clownga would blow him out of court 2 days ago.

Fed and Tsonga by far.

I think Berdshit has adopted relatively well to slow surfaces but perhaps he deserves a place in there because of his inability to hit through the pushers Noledal.

Mostly just Tsonga tbh. The other top players all like it slow. I doubt Ferrer loves that they're all medium-slow now, either. It's helped him on grass but hurt him on clay where he likes it very slow and hard where he likes it quite fast. Federer was helped on clay but hurt on HC and grass. Same with Berdych. The real victims are Llodra, Becker, etc.

Petzschner, Uglynek, Llodra... Out of the top players Tsonga. But maybe even Novak, eh ahd to switch to this more defensively oriented style, but he seems to be good at it, so you can't really call him the loser here.

You never heard this before, because you are not familiar with fedtards on MTF. Just nevermind.
