Why do you think Djokovic sucks on grass as opposed to hard - too slippery to slide.
Why do you think Sampras sucks on clay as opposed to grass - can't slide
Speed of court will only influence your style of play, but mastery of movement will dictate your success on a particular surface.
Laver never won slam on Hard, nor did Borg. This is their biggest blemish.
laver never played a major on hard courts .... however he did win many other tournaments on hard courts ...
Becker,Edberg and Sampras would baggel him ( federer ) on fast indoor or grass more often than not. - the one and only kiki
