Now that we know that Nadal has injured his hand he uses for the back hand DH BH , Will the rivals try to take advantage by putting the ball on the Back Hand more.

In a way they were already doing that whenever they can because of the much FEARED FEARHAND but will they try that even more ...
Previously NAdal used to run around backhands on slow courts to take them on the forehand but since he lacks the "ETERNAL YOUTH" ala Federer , he cant keep doing it every time. So that will force him to play more BH in conjunction with what his opponents do.

I expect that there will be some tactical changes coming in NAdal matches and not just how Nadal adjusts his game , but also how his opponents adjust theirs.

Can't see OP but his hand isn't injured if that's what is suggested. His backhand was always average anyway so...

Nadal has the best slice backhand on the tour. So they can hit to his backhand as much as they want, he will wear them out.

Possibly one of the worst thing i have ever read on this :lol:

Dolgopolov, Murray, Federer, Youzhny just to name a few all have better BH slice than Nadal.

Nadal's opponents will take advantage of his injured wrist, just like they have taken advantage of his injured knees, back, foot, stomach,...

Going to be a lot of slice from Nadal, he will become Feli Lopez with better forehand and less serve

Truth be told, his opponents have tried that for years and he's managed a forehand-dominant game. Why would that change now?

If there were a time to do it, it would have been when his confidence was severely struggling with that shot due to in large what Djokovic had done to it, he was staggering in his movement on that end, and every third or fourth ball he gave up from it was full of air.

Not many sustained it then.

That's why dull's tards are called dulltards. Zero knowledge about tennis.

I expect guys will try to hit more to it at first to see if there is any weakness.

They tried to avoid Rafa's forehand before but Rafa has sufficient time to move to his forehand side on clay. Not sure about it on hard court. Hope Rafa will recover asap.

i don't think they'll risk a situation where he needs growth factors, so they'll go to his fh.
