Federer was against it before he struck a single ball on the surface. That should tell you, that his concerns were not because of the surface itself, but because of him being traditionalist. His concerns had NOTHING to do with how the surface plays!

Besides, blue clay played in his hands, and he still insisted, that clay should remain ..... red. I doubt, that we will see Nadal insist on changes, that could possibly harm him. EVER. Federer is in different league altogether, when it comes to such things.
