In conditions and speeds, that favour exactly his style and that is the whole point in what Becker said.

Try again.

No, because if he chooses to play clay tourneys elsewhere he should give up points elsewhere. That and the points and titles from the Majors, he (and Djokovic) wouldn't have won, would hardly make for more successful career. Again, that is the whole point in what Becker said.

Are you sure, that you understand English?

And that is completely irrelevant in this discussion.

The only reason, that I can think of, for doing that, is to derail the thread from the main topic.

US Open was much faster than it has been for the past several years. And who said, that the speed of the HC should be as fast as carpet? You are making absurd assumptions, just to refute them and thus "prove" your point. Pathetic.

US Open was easily as fast as Cincinnati years back. Tell us how successful Nadal is in Cincinnati?

Why is odd for US Open to be fast? Odd
