Default A major breakthrough for Nadal?

On Friday, Rafael Nadal won the coin toss. He elected to receive first - and he won the match.

Today, he won the coin toss yet again, chose to receive first - and won the match.

My question is a simple one: has Rafael Nadal finally mastered the intricacies of the coin toss? And if so, do you believe his seven month layoff has been crucial in the sense that he has been able to dedicate himself fully to observing, understanding and manipulating the causal relationship extant between coin toss and tennis match? Furthermore, how exactly do you presume Nadal has gone about improving his skills in this particular area?

As always: Rafa respect the coin. Is difficult, no? Is a great coin and can do all the flip. Just try hard. Work hard. Fight all the time. Never give up. But is a flip, no? Sometimes win. Sometimes lose.

Nadal choosing to receive when he can, nothing new friend.

Kenny de Schepper fact of the month (February 2015): won all the ATP tournament matches he played against TOP10 players - note that he has a strictly positive record against them (credits to Federer-Fan).

"Matches are won and lost so many times in the locker room. Guys get in their mind how strong he is the warm-ups and that they will have to endure four hours of that to beat him: they are beaten even before they step on court. But that's why I like him. He basically says you are going to have to kill me to beat me." Lleyton Hewitt about Rafael Nadal

Nadal should always choose to serve first. His serve is good enough to hold straight away. I can't count the number of times when he choked serving at 4-5 and 5-6

He likes serving after the change.

Anyway, you don't think the OP was really serious do you?

No, Rafa enters the match not very alert the first 3 games then he gets along...

In every moment he has to fight and run and be humble and that is how he won.

I think he practiced coin toss in every condition and humidity and figured out which side is likely to fall in which condition with accuracy of 94,8%

shouldn't you always receive first because if you start slowly you don't lose your serve?
