Anyone see Nadal play live? I am wondering how high are his topspin FH shots. Can't see it on TV since they usually show the front and back of teh players. Is his shots like powerful semi-moon balls with the maximun height of maybe 6-7 feet????

This doesn't really answer your question, but I saw him practicing at the US Open and at least on hard courts, during practice, his forehand are far from moonballs. They don't go over the net by much and they have the trajectory of a flat ball yet are spinning like crazy. Nadal, Federer, and Verdasco are great at generating these types of shots.
