    He's just rallying around, expending little energy, and a flat ball goes faster than a heavy topspin ball. He don't play points hitting like that.

    He does that in warm ups all the time. He doesn't hit it very often, but he will use it from time to time (youtube "Rafa's fastest forehand"). But yeah, it's just an easier stroke to warm up with.
