The fine line between the Professional Tennis Players and any other player is their strokes, strategy, footwork, and mental game. This difference arises in the way you practice or play tennis.
Tennis is a game of sheer skill, mental and physical toughness, and the true effort of an individual. The game of tennis is played on different kinds of courts and according to the court type, the domination of players differs.
It is observed that a player like Roger Federer is a champion at grass-court whereas Rafael Nadal is good on clay. But, let us look at the players that are good at hard court or hard surface.
The indoor tournaments offer hard surfaces along with the Australian Open and US Open. Not every player has the potential to perform well on the hardcourt.
Currently, Andy Murray is considered to be the best amongst the male players on the hardcourt with his best showings on the hard surface. Andy has managed to win most of his games on hard court.
Juan Martin Del Potro is number two with his major career title on this surface. He defeated Roger Federer in the 2009 U.S. Open to win the maiden Grand Slam of his career and since then he has impressed in games on hard court.
Roger Federer is a champion player and he has also shown his abilities on the hard court by winning major titles like the Australian and U.S. Opens several times. Even though, he hasn’t shown the best of results on hard surfaces but has managed to show strong skills.
Andy Roddick is another player who has shown his strong skills on a hard surface by winning the major title of the U.S. Open. Due to the hardness of the court, this surface suits him best with his natural attacking game.
