the better grass court player nadal???? my god!!! he was defeated by nole that moves horrible in grass and even delpo could won novak on grass , delpo!!!
nadal has all the characteristic of a grass court player : serve , volley , slice.....
are you crazy??
Nadal is actually a fairly decent grass court player because is SO amazing at passing shots and speed.
sure he is prone to lose to a big server when the grass is nice and fast, but do realize since the dawn of tennis grass wears down and gets slower after played on for a while, not his fault it's so slow the second week.
his net game is solid, his volleying pretty good, great great passing shots (once again this focuses in on the good servers who like to S/V)
granted he might be more screwed in the 90s with SOOO many big servers but Nadal's game translates decently on grass. why do people think Borg was so great on grass? just because of a big serve
that is an illlusion, that you need a big serve to dominate on grass
Nadal is obviously second behind Federer as the best grass court player in the past decade
