Nadal a Lleyton clone but left handed?

Yeah what u guys reckon

I watched the Puerta/Nadal FO final and thought he was just bumrooting the whole time. He's pretty much a very defensive player from the looks of it. Sooner or later Fed and the rest will figure his game out

Attack always wins over defence (on other surfaces atleast)

There is no comparison, enough said

My great tennis loves-Roger Federer, Paul Henry Mathieu and Marat Safin

Grigor Dimitrov & David Goffin - The future of tennis

Allez - Jerzy Janowicz, Jose Acasuso , Lleyton, Djokovic, Nalbandian, Clement, Nicolas Almagro, Stanislas Wawrinka

And with more spin. Nadal is actually more gifted than Hewitt.

Nadal's forehand is a bigger shot than Hewitt will ever have.

Re: Nadal a Lleyton clone but left handed?

I don't think Nadal is a Lleyton clone

I'd say Nadal is a Thomas Muster killing machine of both side strokes hehehe

Lefties rock!!!

before it was Stefan Edberg, Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras, Thomas Muster, Patrick Rafter and Michael Chang.

now it's still ANDRE AGASSI, JAMES BLAKE
Rafael Nadal, Richard Gasquet, Gaston Gaudio, Mariano Puerta, Feliciano Lopez, Guillermo Coria

No. They do have similar personalities on the tennis court, however.

Nadal's game matches up nicely for Hewitt. Nadal cannot out-compete/out hustle a man who just does it better than him.

no. nadal has more power, he defends similar to hewitt but attacks more often and has the bigger forehand.

Hewitt has more self belief, Nadal can get discouraged.
