Default Who will Bounce Back in a Better way this Season ? Djokovic or Nadal?

All right, Many would say that Nole still has a good season. But its still a Step down from the Stellar 2011 that he had. He has had a string of Bad Losses to many Top Players. From Federer to Nadal to Murray to Del Potro to Tipsarevic.

So will he bounce back in the upcoming season better than


Rafael Nadal. Who himself apart from the Great Clay Season, which he is expected to dominate anyway, has had an ordinary season. Still no HC Titles. Kohlie,Rosol,Djokovic,Federer all had better of him till now.


So who will Bounce Back in a Better way?

Novak Djokovic or Rafael Nadal OR

The Likes of Federer,Murray, Del Potro will dominate the rest of the season?

difficult to say, Nadal has improved massively in that area the game, but one thing is sure both are not natural volleyers.

Imo, it's Djokovic. Nadal comes forward way too rarely. Djokovic's weakness at the net is greatly exaggarated.

His smash however

Nadal by far!

Djokovic has the worst slice, volley and smash of any Wimbledon champion I have seen since the 80s atleast (probably in the whole open era).

No, but Djokovic is the worst volleyer in the top 10. Nadal is better than most but many are still better than Nadal at the net (Murray, Tsonga and Federer in top 10).

Who cares? Volleying is a dead skill. It's like asking who is the best at swordfighting, or who is the best at speaking Latin.

Sorry Djokonauts, I am a fan of Federer now. I've learned over the years to appreciate his contribution to the game. No one will ever surpass this man's influence.
Federer ~ The consummate professional. Never retired once in a match. Does not go over the time limit on every point.

Well it's difficult to say. Nadal is coming to the net when it's obvious that he'll get short, slow defensive ball and usually has high percentage of winning it. Also have a great bh smash. But he's rarely truly tested at the net.

On contrary Novak goes sometimes for risky volleys and chip & charge occasionally - I think he has a decent volleys but his net approach and positioning still sucks big time...

Nadal's volleys are underrated IMO. He can volley pretty efficiently when he gets the chance. I'd give him the edge over Nole.
