FedEx Performance Zone: Best By Surface

Look at how players fared by surface using the FedEx ATP Win/Loss Index

The ability to quickly adjust to different surfaces and conditions is a neccessity on the 62-tournament circuit. Here's a look at some of the best performers in 2015 by surface this year:

Clay Courts (minimum 10 tie-breaks)
With victory at Munich in May, Andy Murray became the first British player to capture a clay-court title since Buster Mottram at 1976 Palma. He went on to beat Rafael Nadal for the first time on red dirt to clinch his 10th ATP World Tour Masters 1000 crown at Madrid. Novak Djokovic's only loss came to Stan Wawrinka in a four-set Roland Garros final.
