If that was an one off, if it was due to Ferrer or if he can repeat this against the best: we´ll see. But I think we are in agreement here.
Yeah Nadal's right-handedness really shows in the backhand technique. He uses his right arm a lot and often hits the shot from an open stance. When goes for the DTL he doesn't really pivot off his front foot with the body, he uses his arms more and falls to the side a bit.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

They know that simply rolling the ball in isn't good enough, so they try to go for more, and make mistakes, double fault etc. That is what doubt does to you. You start serving well, balls come back with interest, close to the lines, and you say to yourself, "Jesus, what do I have to do to win a point against this guy...I need to serve harder, go for the lines"...That is when 1st serve percentage starts going down, and the more it goes down, the more you start to panic. That is what happened to Nadal and so many other players against Djokovic. He gives you nothing. He makes you doubt yourself, your own game.
I couldn't have explained it better myself. Bravo.



Novak Djokovic nº1!

Federer to Nole: "Amazing year. Amazing tournament. Amazing match. You are THE BEST!"

he should have skipped IW and target Miami. but will probably tank before QF, except if he falls in Ferrer´s quarter

The Miami surface is more taxing to play on than the IW surface so if he is going to take one off, it's wise to be Miami. But maybe he will play both.

Rafa beating Murray is sweet. Nole dominating Rafs is sweeter. Nole making Rafa on RG would be the greatest. And I hate all these chumps. Good lord tennis sucks these days. I miss JesusFed

lol. Yeah right. What kind of man Rafa is? He plays f***ing with balls for a living. Give me a break. You take tennis players too seriously. To me, they are just entertainers and not role models. And I mean all.
