Re: WWW IW R4 Nadal vs Dolgopolov

Dolgo can hit flat backhands if he wants.

He will probably slice though, its his natural game.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker

Re: WWW IW R4 Nadal vs Dolgopolov

Rafa in 3. Dolgopolov wins the 1st set 7-5 after coming for a 2-5.
But then Rafa shows his super saiyan form, 5-7 6-2 6-1

Wow, I miss Santoro. Gorgeous points against Djoko.

I can see why Safin hated him.

Rafa, something straightforward but not easy. Hoping for a good match though.

Unless nadal is poisoned by a burrito, will be though. Nadal in 2 sets 7/6, 6/4

Re: WWW IW R4 Nadal vs Dolgopolov

People say that full western grip is weaker against low slice.

I disagree.

Full western grip means you have the topspin to hit low balls as hard as you like, because the spin will lift the ball high over the net and still bring it down. Meaning you can be as aggressive as you like on even the most perfectly hit slice (which is a low percentage shot as a perfect slice must travel very low over the net, so the slicer will make more errors than you anyway)

Additionally full western is easier on high balls.

So Nadal is in his comfort zone hitting extremely high balls and extremely low balls and everything in between.

There is no way you can break down the Nadal forehand.

Re: WWW IW R4 Nadal vs Dolgopolov

Their match last year in Miami stunk of shit.

Nadal again, just as easy.

Re: WWW IW R4 Nadal vs Dolgopolov

Nadal is even a worse match up for Dolgopolov than he is for Federer if such a thing is possible...
