Nalbandian. New Serve?

He is doing it great and it's a new fact of his improving.

I couldn't find statistics but after watching his matches against Federer and now against Ferrer he is making much more aces and winners with serve. I feel like he is also serving faster. Now it's harder to break him and I'm not sure, but I think he haven't being broke lately.

Another plus for Jaite as coach.

Re: Nalbandian. New Serve?

Yeah I felt that too.
Maybe saving bps is a psychological effect, but his serving impresses me so far. Even when his first serve goes a fault, it looks pretty faster than usual.

The mind sees what it wants to see

Re: Nalbandian. New Serve?

His serve has helped him a lot today; his bh is not working that well (no bh winners yet)...

Re: Nalbandian. New Serve?

Yep, his serve has been a lot better at least since Madrid.

Now it's not a weakness anymore

Re: Nalbandian. New Serve?

His volleying seems to have improved as well, did a sampras slam dunk against ferrer LoL. Only thing suspect is his fitness.

Re: Nalbandian. New Serve?

He has 15 aces in the Ferrer match so far and 0 double faults, so i guess that's a good example of his new and improved serve

Re: Nalbandian. New Serve?

I think 18 aces is correct not 15.And the opponent was Ferrer who is one of the best returners on tour.

Re: Nalbandian. New Serve?

Yeap... He fired 18 aces. Is that a record for him in a 3 sets match?

Re: Nalbandian. New Serve?

He is serving much better, he is fitter and is still very impressive from the baseline and volleying well. Overall the game to challenge for number 1 if he commits to a full year which very unlikely.

Often mentioned, but he does so often win 5 set matches.

He had a modification on his serve. If you pay attention he is tossig the ball higher than before
