"I haven't played on clay for almost a year. As usual, I watch my videos to remember what I should do."

On one hand... how arrogant! :)

On the other hand, it is hard to argue with his choice of successful players to imitate on the surface. :)

no wonder, it takes him one minute to remember how to serve each time in his service games :D

I wonder if uncle Toni played video tapes of Borg when Nadal was little to program him to be the next clay GOAT

He did but nobody realized somebody accidentally pushed the slow motion button when Borg was preparing to serve.

Maybe Federer should start watching his own tapes of when he was "in his prime".

LOLLLLL. Senti, that's harsh.

It makes sense that he should watch his own matches. Plus, he's the best clay courter on tour right now, and perhaps of all time. No point fixing something that ain't broken!

Maybe he should watch Novak's videos from now on.

Woah. Clay is called earth/soil in Spanish? I didn't know that.

Yes, "tierra" is short for "tierra batida". You can also say "polvo de ladrillo" or "arcilla".

Nadal should watch his 2008/2010 more often then :)
