Re: Nadal is not the same force as yester year....
The thing that really strikes me so far this year is his unforced errors. He is missing shots that he would have made last year – in particular what would have been forehand winners last year. He is well set up, and then will make an error. Odd to see. His quickness, imo so far has not really changed that much from last year. He’s just more sloppy.
Like some others have alluded to, it is reminding me a bit how Roger was at the start of the Aussie Open. I am not worried yet…I think that his form will come more as the season progresses and also maybe when he plays some tougher opponents.
I like a lot of players.
