Watching the Rosol-Nadal match, it became apparent that atleast two adjustments have to be done.
1. Needs to start returning better. Seriously, he is a very overrated returner IMHO. Of he top 5 he is ye worst. I still cant figure out why Nadal stands way back on the second serve on HC. The ball doesnt bounce that high and he misses so many second serves. On clay its understandable but not on HC and grass.

2. He needs to change it up and start hitting the fh flatter sometimes. Rosol was just destroying everything that came at his chest. Just feel that on the faster surfaces other players are succeeding on breaking down his forehand whenever they get a high ball.

What do you guys think?

3. he plays like a petrified puppy when his opponent is fearless
4. he doesn't have ability to adjust and change his game ad hoc
5. Federer is amazing

6. when someone is playing well all elements ARE against nadal (FREAKING WIND ON INDOOR COURTS)

7. IF you happen to play nadal do not breathe when he is serving, he is all perfect and needs utter complete silence.

8. WHEN you play nadal, you are on his 400K watches time, not your on. you play by ITS pace, and everyone knows it runs slower than the average.

Pushing doesn't work well on fast surfaces. Simple as that.
