When he hits them it is by redirecting a hard hit ball from a perfect angle. He has to run around a not very hard hit short ball to hit a forehand because he cannot generate the power needed on his backhand.
I dunno, he can certainly create pace as well. Just not very often off Nadal's balls.

Eg. The OP has been on the forum for less than a month. During that time, he has started 25 threads and has more than 450 posts.
So, what does one do? One can ignore users but there is no tool to prevent us from seeing this explosive diarrhoea of inane threads. So, you just try to go away from the forums for weeks at a time. When you come back, you discover that you've missed nothing. Work for me all the time.
Or better, just go to the Racquets subforum. That is still a saner forum than General Pro Player discussion and Pro-Match Results.
I have been banned true, but I didn't need to make a dupe, they just unbanned me.
What's wrong with comparing their current BHs? Clearly there is some room for dicussion.
Why is diarrhea always referred to as "explosive"? I don't think I've ever smashed a toilet after a burrito.
