Nadal is smart. At RG, Federer was returning the serve out wide and the sidewinder up the T well so he's served many balls into the body and, down the T on the AD, and out wide on the deuce. Fed is looking for the sidewinder and the ball is going right into him.

Federer's off-Fh has been off today. That approach shot there was one of the good ones he hit and then you get an easy volley.

Then again, most players wouldn't be able to pass him so...

Federer upset with shot spot. Nadal's ball at best caught .5 inches of the line and shot spot shows that half of the ball was in.

NYC, do you have any insights? Federer's first serve percentage has been patchy. Good at times, not good at others. His break point conversion has been abysmal -- some of that is Nadal, but I didn't even count how many missed or netted second serve returns there were, which makes me wonder...

Nadal's serving patterns are accordingly to McEnroe quite different than RG, and, I can't argue, Federer's only broken him once when it didn't ultimately matter.

Federer's sidewinder up the T on the AD side is not working at all and that's why every one of his service games is going to 30 and deuce. That's been his best serve this tournament which is rare for a righty. ONly Sampras hit that serve like that.

When you say not working, what do you mean? Not going in, or Nadal's returning it well?

Nadal's serving patterns are accordingly to McEnroe quite different than RG, and, I can't argue, Federer's only broken him once when it didn't ultimately matter.

I mentioned somewhere in this thread that Nadal saw that Federer was returning his serve out wide on the Ad and sidewinder up the T on the deuce court very well at RG so he was going to mix it up here. Into the body, up the T on the Ad and out wide on the deuce more than I have ever seen him.
