Federer has definitely benefited from court homogenisation, but mostly on clay. He is not a grass/indoor specialist by any stretch of the amagination.
Agree with this mostly. It's arguable that the change of surface at AO in 2008, which provided a slower, higher bounce did not really benefit him.
Federer has won more outdoor hard majors than he had grass, or indoor hard Wtfs. Of course, there's two a year so he has more chances. But a guy with nine outdoor hard majors: that ain't no grass specialist.
