A winning shot doesn't always need to be a flat one, for instance - Rafa knows very well that a lot of players (perhaps I should say ALL of them) have a lot of problems with his spin balls and as such, they are winners too when the opponent isn't able to return them.
of course everyone is entitled to his/her opinion, I'm always surprised when people say that as it's so obvious
Actually I've been especially often said that
, which is surely related with the "tone" of my posts
. That's not what I mean but well, I'm used to getting that reaction
, I've made my mind up about that
As for my opinion if ever you're interested and if it doesn't look as a denial that you're "entitled to your opinion", sorry
- Nadal makes errors that he didn't do, even in Doha and his quicker surface.
- Normally he has security when he puts spin in his shots.
