No, there are plenty of athletic guys on tour but they don't have Nadal's hands to create those magic shots on the run, the same ball which they merely get back Nadal somehow ends up putting you on the defensive.

What do you mean by physicality? You do realize Fed and Novak are also terrific movers? Heck, Fed at 31 is still one of the best movers on tour.

Before them, the best player of the 90s Sampras was arguably the fastest guy on tour, then there was Borg, Laver etc.
