That, and Nadal's balls land higher and are less uncomfortable to hit against. They're much more in Nole's hitting zone.
Trends are continuing right now in this match up. Murray can rely on big first serves, hitting aggressive forehands, and Nole's first serve percentage simply way too low (like US Open F). The way he lost both swinging volley points from 40-15 up was not positive at all.
