With Nadal's movement in clear decline, should he bring back USO 2010 serve?

I mean, think about it.

He has said that he can still crank it up to 125-130 mph on the serve, but he is worried about the first serve % in that scenario.

But the way I see it, he can't just keep hitting serves at 110 mph and rely on his movement and court coverage anymore outside of clay. On grass and hard, he MUST go for bigger serves and keep the rallies shorter.

He has to if he has any chance of having success outside clay ever again.

Well he said the main reason he dropped it was because it was putting a ton of strain on his shoulder. So yeah, it MIGHT get him one more HC Slam or something but at the risk of breaking his body even further. Besides his movement was fine in IW this year, clearly playing on Grass after a lot of matches with little preparation is the problem, not non-Clay in general.

Will probably get "injured" for 7 months if he uses it again

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

I wish Rafa days like this as long as he plays tennis. He deserves them.

I don't like Nadal.

Rafa is done. Give it up with these silly threads. Before today, it was Rafa wins all tournaments this year. Now he is clearly done and needs a new serve? By the way, did anyone DVR this Darcis match? I'd like to watch it 100 times till next Wimbledon. Send it to me. Thanks

"bring back"? From where? Is it hung somewhere? I thought Djokovic ripped apart whatever was left of 2010 Nadal the next year.

There is nothing wrong with Rafa's game. Have people already forgotten his victory at Indian Wells?

That's a slow HC and he had many tough matches. It's completely different having to play multiple HC tournaments in a row the rest of the year.

He still can serve like that but chooses not to? How generous this Humblito is.

Nadal's movement is no worse than it was 2 weeks ago.

What a stupid topic.

This is getting retarded. Nadal was moving like a God at the FO, making his usual impossible gets and winners. There is nothing wrong with the guy.

His movement is great on clay but worse on grass, especially lush grass. Not sure about HC.
