Deltox are you a new tennis fan? He plays doubles occasionally and mixes and matches doubles partners. Sometimes he plays with Lopez or Robredo or some other unknown Spanish guys. Mabe he just plays with whoever is available to get a bit more match practice and volley practice.

He sucks at volleying, so he isn't good at doubles. He just likes to sit at the baseline, so he's only good in singles.

Hold on there im sure if Nadal really puts the effort into it he can be a great doubles player hes already won a 1000 doubles event and won Doha this year beating nestor/Zimonjic. I think he has potential but obviously singles is way/lightyears better than doubles. Doubles is more of a consolation prize for failed singles player. Argue with me on that 1 if you like haha

Nadal is a very underrated volleyer. He has very good hands at the net. Sure he has extreme grips which doesnt benefit his net game but hes extremely solid. You dont win the Monte Carlo Masters in doubles without a reason.

You just never watch Nadal period. Why you would start a thread about a player you dislike and know nothing about is anybody's guess really. Nadal plays doubles a lot and he has won 5 titles in doubles (+ played several finals). He won the doubles in Doha this year and the doubles in Monte-Carlo last year as well as the single title.

Nadal has won 5 double titles and played 3 finals. He's a very competent volleyer and you're a tool. If you want to see somebody who sucks at the net, watch Roddick!

yeah he plays a lot of doubles..I think i remember him saying that he plays doubles to stay loose for his singles matches..talk about a guy with determination.
