    You call Australian Open fast? I say its even slower than clay at the French Open. And Wimbledon plays like clay in the second week, which is how the term 'green clay' came about. US Open imo is the fastest GS now in terms of court speed, which just defies logic in tennis terms, as grass is meant to be the fastest surface out of the three.
    In terms of speed its like this fastest to slowest:
    Wimbledon
    Us Open
    Australian Open
    French Open

    From what I've seen so far this season, Aussie Open seemed slower than the French. And I've already given my reasons why the US Open is the fastest GS in my previous post, so please refer to it.

    Nadal is more unlucky. 3/4 SLAMS are on Fast surfaces. Only 1/4 is on Slow surface.
    I'd argue that the likes of Nadal are lucky that those 3 fast surfaces aren't faster.

    back in the 60's Most of the slams were on clay. Imagine if it still was that way.

    He's just full of rubbish. If there were 3 Masters on grass, just like there are on clay, I'm certain Fed would have a great deal more.

    If that was still the case, Fed would have won like 25 slams, not to mention the numerous other tournaments on grass.

    Back then Nadal's game wasn't as good as it is now.
    I'd be worried if it was not, he's 5 years younger. I'd also point out that clay and when they play in a tournament plays a big part. For example did you know that Fed leads 4-3 in finals not contested on clay and excluding finals they draw 4-4 outside clay.

    The slams already Favor Federer. 2 slams on hard and 1 grass statistically Federer is the best on those surfaces.

    It's not about the surfaces, it more to do with the speed and the bounce. So Australian Open and French Open both favour Rafa, as they are slow as hell and bounce a lot higher causing all sorts of problems for Federer's backhand. Wimby (only just) and US open favour Fed as they are medium/fast and so are compatible with Rogi's aggressive style of play. The bounce at these slams is also relatively low and thus Federer's backhand doesn't break down that often as it does on surfaces with high bounce.

    Surface homogenisation has helped Nadal more than Federer.
