    It means boring your opponents to death with heavy topspin forehands, waiting until your opponent makes an error because he fell asleep, then you celebrate like you cured cancer.

    It means playing like Sam Stosur and hitting topspin drive forehands instead of flat forehands.

    It means Knet is having a pre-match meal of gambas over pasta with Spanish Olive Oil as a dressing which is Rafa's favorite meal.

    The olive oil keeps the joints lubricated for all those bollo forehand folllow throughs over the head.

    However, unlike Nadal, she is not a lefty, and cannot make forehands curve in a left-to-right trajectory

    well there are already many cures to cancer (Vitamin b17, MMS, Shark Cartilage, Essiac, etc.) I guess you just don't know about them.

    As for hitting with heavy top spin forehands, everyone does that. Players on the tour now are able to also drive the ball. Very rarely do players just play defense, Even Nadal & Djokovic (defensive players first), can open the court up and finish points. In women's tennis, rarely do players play high and heavy spin, besides Schiavone.

    Guys, thanks for all the joke responses, but some responses with actual analysis of her tennis game would be appreciated.

    The guy who posted the video of Nadal was not bad.

    Can't blame him. He knows what can happen if he plays too frequently to Federer's forehand on a fast/low-bouncing court.

    If it was Roddick, he would have been charging the net after hitting forehand chips to Federer's forehand side.

    So good that I've had to paraphrase it for my new signature, as is there are too many characters.

    Still holding onto that lollipop of the Olympics?

    It means diddly squat in tennis, and as I've said before, you know that.

    But how I will laugh if Roger or Novak take it this year :)

    Where will you turn to then? Chuckle, chuckle...

    Two questions: Why are you quoting Popeye (Chuckle, chuckle)?
    And, is your girlfriend OK with you photoshopping her face on Nadal's body in your avatar?

    If NOle wins the Calendar Slam, then your CAREER slam is gonna look awfully lame :). You can thank Roger for stopping Nole from winning a real Grand Slam.

    Question 1 answer: Well, if you are allowed to idol someone who took things to increase his muscle size, then so am I :)

    Question 2 answer: You mean, is my boyfriend? And yes, he is. Well, since his hair cut.

    She means more consistent and less aggressive. In other words more margin for error, more topspin and net clearance. Less risky play.

    What's more did Ralph ever win the WTF in the same year as he won 3 slams ?

    Oh wait ...

    The hypothetical we will never know, can Rafa actually beat Fed in a semi and then Djoko in the final.
