At the Australian Open this year he was shanking every second return at times, especially against Novak in the semi.

Yet at the YEC not much shanking.

How come? You would think on the fast low bounce courts he would have less time to set himself etc.

Of course this may have more to do with form than anything else, but it mast be harder to get your timing right on faster courts surely?

On indoor courts, the bounce is much truer, on the outdoor courts the bounce is much more variable as there are other factors that effect it. I also think confidence plays a part too...

But generally I'd say it's easier to time the ball on a faster court.

Higher bounce on slower courts to backhand - mishit.

Low bounce - backhand fine.

It could be to do with surfaces, but it could also simply be that Fed was timing the ball better that week
