2009 AO Nadal vs 2010 USO Nadal

Which version do you think played better?

I think in early 2009, defense was slightly better, backhand was much better (too many clown errors during USO2010 from that wing :o)

In 2010, serve is much better, forehand even more lethal (he flattens it out a lot more and his CC/DTL forehand is probably best on the tour right now) and slice is a little better.


Overall I'd say 2010 Nadal was more impressive, just for the improved serve, it's just that important on grass/hard.

Agree about backhand.. was more impressive in 2009 but overall,performance from US open 2010 was better and he won Slam a lot easier then in Melbourne

AO 2009 by far. The tennis he played vs Fed,Haas and verdasco( bloody good match that one), was better then any of the stuff he came up with in New York

His defense was better, that's for sure.

Definitely US Open. Djokovic in the USO Final played a higher level than Federer in the AO Final, and Rafa responded by playing a higher standard of tennis than he did in the AO Final (he was a bit tired in the AO Final anyway, that's understandable after that Verdasco SF). Rafa was more energized in the USO Final, and yes better serve and forehand (and volleying). The backhand winners (and some excellent drop-shots) in the AO Final doesn't make up for the other aspects. US Open Final is the best hardcourt performance of Rafa's life in my opinion (but a case could definitely be made for the AO Verdasco SF, but I like today's Rafa more because he takes more risks than 2009 and its more entertaining) :yeah:

Yes agreed. He’s going to be even harder to stop now, will probably take the field a while to catch up and evolve their own games to the extent Nadal has.

I wonder how much more Rafa can improve.

Thanks,

Overall, 2010 US Open. More aggressive, bigger serve, better forehand.

In 2010 Nadal is a smarter player. He sets the target and does every thing suitable to make it. An absolut champion mind.

He is more aggressive now. It has its consequences. You can not open the court and hope to cover it as well as the days when you were simply playing defense.

He will be his bestest ever at AO 2011.

Nobody can challenge him in a 5-set match on any surface. Nobody.

I also think his outfit was sexier in USO 2010, but it will be better at AO 2011. Don't you doubt that.

Now let's talk about his biceps. OMG, they just keeping getting bigger and bigger. He had some massive guns in USO 2010, but they will be bigger at AO 2011.

And his hair. To die for. So sexy. He looks a lot like Fabio to me. I'm straight, but I have to admit, I wanted to sex him up after the USO 2010 finals. Instead I just jacked off on my big screen.

Nadal reminds me of Fedor Emialenko. A myth, overrated athlete who is good at things (no, he is great at being lucky). that's all there is to it. US Open is so shameful. Who did he beat to reach the final? Verdasco? Really?

Goat post eva!!

Omg.. Those sexy thighs!!

Did you see his USO commercial.
While he was holding a tennis ball like
right above his own. I was like OMG!!! he was actually touching himself on tv.
Especially the way he says those GAMBAS.
After that USO, I swore how I wished that I could have been that floor instead!
