Does anyone know why Nadal was using a slice backhand (as default) against Simon? He was slicing more than hitting over it.
Makes no sense. He didn't play well because of this. I have never seen Nadal slice his backhand that much ever. If he was trying to mix it up, he still wouldn't slice it that much.
Is Simon known for his inability to reach low balls?
Are you kidding? He was all slice, all the time at the beginning of last year.
He said after the match why he played the way he did. I didn't like it
but he won so ...
