Who will Bounce Back in a Better way this Season ? Djokovic or Nadal?

All right, Many would say that Nole still has a good season. But its still a Step down from the Stellar 2011 that he had. He has had a string of Bad Losses to many Top Players. From Federer to Nadal to Murray to Del Potro to Tipsarevic.

So will he bounce back in the upcoming season better than


Rafael Nadal. Who himself apart from the Great Clay Season, which he is expected to dominate anyway, has had an ordinary season. Still no HC Titles. Kohlie,Rosol,Djokovic,Federer all had better of him till now.


So who will Bounce Back in a Better way?

Novak Djokovic or Rafael Nadal OR

The Likes of Federer,Murray, Del Potro will dominate the rest of the season?

Re: Better volleyer: Nadal or Djokovic

difficult to say, Nadal has improved massively in that area the game, but one thing is sure both are not natural volleyers.

Re: Better volleyer: Nadal or Djokovic

Imo, it's Djokovic. Nadal comes forward way too rarely. Djokovic's weakness at the net is greatly exaggarated.

His smash however

Re: Better volleyer: Nadal or Djokovic

Nadal by far!

Djokovic has the worst slice, volley and smash of any Wimbledon champion I have seen since the 80s atleast (probably in the whole open era).

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.

No, but Djokovic is the worst volleyer in the top 10. Nadal is better than most but many are still better than Nadal at the net (Murray, Tsonga and Federer in top 10).

Re: Better volleyer: Nadal or Djokovic

Who cares? Volleying is a dead skill. It's like asking who is the best at swordfighting, or who is the best at speaking Latin.

Re: Better volleyer: Nadal or Djokovic

Well it's difficult to say. Nadal is coming to the net when it's obvious that he'll get short, slow defensive ball and usually has high percentage of winning it. Also have a great bh smash. But he's rarely truly tested at the net.

On contrary Novak goes sometimes for risky volleys and chip & charge occasionally - I think he has a decent volleys but his net approach and positioning still sucks big time...

I totally agree with this.

Monaco - Del Potro - Nadal - Wawrinka - Robredo - Simon - Berdych - Dimitrov - Chardy

Re: Better volleyer: Nadal or Djokovic

Nadal's volleys are underrated IMO. He can volley pretty efficiently when he gets the chance. I'd give him the edge over Nole.

Everyone who watched this year's Rome final knows the answer.
