Weakness in Nadal's game found!!

Yes, you've read it right: A weakness!
And that is: TOP SPIN!

How come?
Well, the TOP SPIN together with his physical stamina are Nadal's lethal weapons!

Nadal's TOP SPIN is his TOP GUN. Period.
Everything else is more or less at standards:

-First serve - average to weak
-Second serve - even worse
-Drop shots - weak - he barely use them
-Slices - fair, below top to average
-Net play - not above standard - rarely used
-Forehand and Backhand - ruled and guided by his TOP SPIN; Without use of The TOP SPIN he would barely hit the court
-Groundstrokes: the same as forehand & backhand
-Volley - not bad and not excellent either; again guided by the TOP SPIN
-Mental endurance - lead and guided by his TOP SPIN!

- TOP SPIN - yes! The greatest in the history of the game! Ever! With use of the TOP SPIN, nadal can hit any angles, any lines, any lobs, any corner or square milimeter of the court from any position.!! Moreover: with use of TOP SPIN, Nadal can neutralise any shots, any strokes and any possible traps in combination with his physical stamina.

So, remove anybody's lethal weapon and he becomes a lamb!
This rule has no exception.

So: take Nadal's TOP SPIN away, and he automatically becomes the just above average player. Neutralise Rafa's TOP SPIN and he becomes very vulnerable.

One might say 'yes but it's not easy'. Correct! Not easy at all. BUT, the top guns (Djoker, Murr, Rog) can and have the tools to do that.

So, my advise to Djoker tomorrow*: Neutralise Nadal's TOP SPIN, and you'll roll to the final comfortably! (*this provided that Nando doesn't neutralise Nadal's TOP SPIN in today's match!).

cheers!

Bad thread.

To exploit Rafa's weaknesses you have to use the slice to his backhand....hit flat into his forehand corner....crush his 2nd serve....and just crush the ball in general as often as possible and keep it up all match.

Re: Weakness in Nada's game found!!

I don't think his top spin is his main power, I think it's his speed and stamina, many, many matches he has beaten Federer and other players just due to him trying harder and being fitter - no talent at all.

Re: Weakness in Nada's game found!!

Nadal is more than "topspin". He can slice the ball, flatten the ball, run like crazy, attack the net and volley well, hit incredible angles, great dropshots & lobs, very strong mentally, great return, very consistant serve with a lot of action on it, etc. It's amazing that some people STILL believe that Nadal is not special. Maybe when he wins the grandslam this year, people will start giving him the respect he deserves.

Not sure why the pros haven't figured this out yet but surely Nadal's days as #1 are numbered now that the weakness in his game has been found.

It is all over. The word is that ATP already plans to strip his #1 ranking as of Monday.

Have you seen such thing lately? Can it be ordered over internet? Which malls have it? Is it expensive?

Re: Weakness in Nada's game found!!

It seems that analysis of Nadal heavily depends on whether you like his game or not.

Its either "Heavy topspin, awesome mental strength, and fantastic endurance" or "shitt ugly forehand, moonballs, and waiting for the error."

Funny how such drastic conclusions can be drawn from watching the exact same thing.

I wonder if that's the reason Federer joined the player's council. He's doesn't seem to have been having much succes getting lefty topspin banned though
