I would love to see Nadal fan post something positive about another player , but yeah Playing 2 slams , 1 being RG will inflate his stats, even though yes unbelievable good to start with 👍

That stat is clay inflated. Nadal is the best returner on clay by a mile, and yes maybe even better than Djokovic. But his return is nowhere near as good in other surfaces.

Actually, according to Ultimate Tennis statistics, he is second behind Hugo Gaston who has won 35.95%. And yes, it is clay inflated, as everyone wins more return points on clay and he played a large fraction of clay matches. On HC, he is ranked 27th.

Greatest second server? Good thing you didn’t make this thread earlier or you would’ve thrashed Roxitova in ACC.

What an honor to b just behind an ATG like him. Btw, did we suddenly forget there was no Grass season?

I think his baseline game is objectively still the best in the game. The return is behind several players in terms of that being the key component in him winning the point. His serve and net game have also improved, as well as his use of the slice and flat backhand crosscourt (although this was mia in the indoor season).The movement is a far cry from his peak, but he is compensating very well. A large amount of credit goes to Moya.
