I was seeking a technical explanation of why Nadal is better defensively than Nole.

I reckon Nadal has better passing shots, is that enough? Or is it that he just makes too few errors which compensates his weaker returns compared to Nole's?

Or does Nadal have some great tactical plan of where to send the ball knowing where to defend next, which also compensates for the moonballing?
