Yeah, that's the idea.

Take my musings with a grain of salt (and refer to the more experienced/knowledgeable posters here ), but this is what seems logical, as you correctly pointed out that the momentum of the racquet during the loop does come to a halt (passively, of course, Nadal doesn't consciously stop it while swinging).
