He is forced to bunt back a backhand overhead from the baseline. That's the only thing he could do. And if you have a two-handed backhand you're still not in good shape at all. You'd have to hit a double-handed backhand overhead from the baseline. The thing is Nadal didn't really even swing that hard at that ball to make it bounce that high. Look at how he swings, he is sort of 3/4 pace, but probably very vertical swing, and maybe even a slightly open racket to get that extreme height. The point is it takes very little effort for Nadal to hit a forehand like that, and it puts his opponent in literally an impossible situation. Nadal's average forehand bounces high, but does not bounce clean over his opponents' heads like this one did, so why does he not play this forehand on every single point? Forget high backhands, everyone will need to hit backhand overheads!!
