Alot of guys had very successful hard court seasons in different ways. This includes Nadal, Federer, Djokovic, Murray, Del Potro, and Davydenko imparticular. Who do you believe had the best to sixth best hard court season out of these 6. Here are my rankings of best hard courters of 2009: 1. Nadal- he is the only one who won both a slam and a Masters. This gives him #1. 2. Del Potro- he had to win the Tennis Masters Cup final or the Canada Masters final to be #1 and he didnt. He has the biggest hard court title of the year and has owned Nadal head to head on hard courts this year but it isnt enough. 3. Federer- he has 2 slam finals and a Masters title. Definitely the #3 for the year on this surface. 4. Davydenko- he has the 3rd biggest hard court title of the year and another Masters. So I went with him for #4 even without much in the way of hard court slam results, which Murray also doesnt have. 5. Djokovic- I went with him above Murray since he has a slam semifinal and quarterfinal, plus 3 Masters finals and 1 Masters title on hard courts on the year. 6. Murray- he does have 2 Masters titles and 3 Masters finals. However this is overcome by his two 4th round losses in hard court slams, and Davydenko's TMC title combined with another Masters clearly trumps Murray.
