Look, I love Nadal. I think he's great, but; why do you take issue with the term moonball to describe his moonball shots? Would you prefer the term "heavy ball?" Would you prefer the term hyper-badass-mooball-of-super-power?
Nadal is able to combine pace, with upper register RPM, with a moonball trajectory creating one of the most frustrating shots to return in professional tennis.
Doesn't it go without saying that Nadal's moonballs do not have the same hackish qualities of a rec player's moonballs?
