I miss the old Nadal.

I hate Nadal. But, he used to be awesome, when he still had his wild long hair, long pants and sleeveless shirt, just beasting around the court without being styled to boredom by Nike.

Just look at the young scalawag.

Re: I miss the old Nadal.

I do realize that Rafa has matured but it looks like to me hes lost some of this wild passion and anger on court

I'm still a fan and always will be but man I miss the old Nadal,

I miss the extreme confidence Rafa used to have and how awesome tennis was when Nadal was in Grand Slam Finals. I miss how unhumanly fast he was and being in awe of that forehand. I miss watching his matches without being nervous and how dominant he used to be on clay.

Tennis needs the old Rafa back ASAP. Djokovic is a great player and a good person but he cannot be allowed to vulture enough Grand Slams to become a Tier 1 Great. We can only hope 2016 will be the resurgence of Nadal.

I miss the old Nadal too. Huh 2006, 2008, even the 2010 Nadal would do, or 2013 comeback.

Re: I miss the old Nadal.

As I wrote in another thread.......his game and the deepth of his shots needs his full upper body-muscles which are not a question of age.

Look at this "old" version of Rafa from 2010 in IW vs Ancic. What an animal he was.

Winner speed 110 mph ...
