The time has come. Bernard is easily the most natural grass-court player on tour. I watched some of his matches on clay this season too and I have to say there are lot of improvements in his game. First of all its topspin backhand...He is well-known for one the best slices in modern tennis but his bh wing is now looks complete. He add nice bdtl to his game and really can make damage from that wing. His bh is very hard to read too (as a whole game) and he can produce winners DTL even from low balls :yeah: The other part is agressivness on return of 2nd serves. He is no longer a mug on return. He reminds me peak fed with his return strategy - to play at 100% only few games per set. And the last part is his ability to grind when its needed. He can be very tough at crucial points...Add to this his great unreadable serve and fluent movement on grass and you'll have a great dark horse. I think he can make a semis or final with good draw.
