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

This might be correct actually.

Fed has the game to finish off points from a won position, while his defense starts to look a bit slow.

So i think it's right to say that Fed would be most dangerous on a low bouncing mid-slow speed hard atm. AKA - Wimby gras

Correct as far as Berdych, Tsonga, Del Potro, Raonic etc. is concerned. For beating Djokovic and Murray, a faster court will help. By this logic, it's easier for him to reach the AO SF than the USO SF, but more difficult to proceed from there.

Well, if we need to be fully honest - for Sf and final it takes JesusFed back, or it's a no go no matter the speed or bounce.

Except for a certain draw at AO ofc

But i'm positive that JesusFed is still there to show up at times, so we'll see.

To the contrary, this is a terrible court for Nadal. If its tailor made for anyone it's federer since the low bounce protects his vulnerable backhand and keeps everything right in his wheelhouse.

All people do now is complain about court speeds, but maybe it's because the players are stronger and can hit the ball harder now, so the ball is going faster, that the court people feel that they have to slow them down.

Looks to me like the ball is bouncing ridiculously high and the court looks super slow for an indoor court.

or maybe its because ATP wants to homogenize the courts so that one player can get a CYGS or a NCYGS in the near future which will milk money like no other .Also the slow courts allow the ATP to milk on the top 4 rivalry .So the court people feel that are forced to slow it down to get more money

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.
