so don't be naive about it
Obviously Nadal on clay >>>>> Nole on clay generally but I was comparing 2011 Nole with 2012 Nole specifically. I'm not sure there was much change in the play of Rafa over the two years - although he did learn things from the 7 successive defeats, naturally - whereas Nole's level obviously dropped.
