1. The roster has everything to do with it. If he were playing against the Ocala roster at Miami he would probably win everything there is to win also. What happens when you give Goico or Irastorza a right side because you can't pass them? You will have to go have a seat on the bench and pray they don't run the game out. Yes Olabe is very good, but come on, How can you compare him to the guys at Miami.

2. Yes I have played on just about all the courts in Fl. I know you can get more height at Dania and Orlando and even the old Palm Beach court to throw a backhand to the back wall. You cant do that at Miami.

Don't misunderstand what I originally meant. I think he is a very good player and he will do well at Miami but his style of play is best suited to a court where you don't have to use a lot of power to get the ball to the back wall. Just watch him play a few times and anyone can see he is a finesse player not a power player.
