i don't think nadal is too concerned with pulling back here
It's impossible to see that from the back perspective you were looking at. Let's look earlier in the video where we can see Oscar himself showing how to properly execute what he's teaching.

Red represents his extension just after hitting the ball. Yellow represents his maximum extension. The green line is drawn straight down from the tip of his racket.

As you can see, the racket tip still extends forward even while pulling back and to the left.
