There are some high loopy balls in that rally, but remember you are looking at Nadal, who is the guy most likely in the top 10 to hit high loopy forehands. I think that the court surface also plays a role. I'd expect to see many more loopy shots on clay than on a faster hard court.
In my experience watching hardcourt tennis, I'd say the rallies shown on this video
are more representative of hard court play than the one rally you show from the WTF.
