Definitely looks thinner than when he left us. Can't wait for him to get back.

Looks lighter to me too. Would be interesting to get a weight update. Not that I expect we will.

Less kilos should be an advantage for his legs.

After his break in 2009 he looked a lot lighter when he came back, if I remember rightly. He didn't really click again until he bulked up a bit, though.

H2H can not be the best measure of greatness due to the rock, paper, scissors conundrum. Since every player who ever lived has a losing record against some other player there can never be a GOAT. The correct measure is each player against the universe of other players over the course of a career.

Yea, but if he losses on power he'll be toast

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

With the way the draws have been going, I expect Nadal to land in Federer's quarter at RG.

He doesn't look skinnier than normal to me at all. He looks to be as solid as ever. Maybe the shorter than normal shorts are throwing you off.
