I don't think he'll be in awe of anything Nadal has to offer this year. Murray is the more aggressive pusher nowadays and honestly has more weapons. I don't think Nadal's clay court tactic of sitting behind the baseline hitting looping forehands will work. He isn't fast enough anymore to play that style on faster courts.
