In Barcelona against Chela.
haha,nice point. Nadal goes Sampras.
Sampras would be proud.
You have to love the Slam Dunk. Here is a collection from Pistol:
It wasn't really a hard smash, dropping close to the net, on the other hand I could watch Sampras smash those all day.
Nadal has nothing on Sampras.
to be honest nadals look like a girl smash compared to sampras roddicks and even feds at the us open.
wow.. it never ceases to amaze me how much pace sampras has on that kickserve... o.o
The Slam Dunk is a lot harder than it looks. Not only that, Sampras catches a lot of air, like Jordan.
Look what happens when Rusedski tries the Slam Dunk (twice) on Sampras:
Nadal did another slam smash today vs Gremelmayr. This one bounced well over the fence. :-D
When did you get your PhD? Cos there´s some serious playa hating going on.
This one is pretty good as well.
To be honest, it really doesn't matter how you finish the point. 1 point is 1 point.
oh and Gasquet owns Nadal at overheads. Can Nadal do this? I doubt it!
^ Do you really have to do this "my daddy is stronger and bigger than your daddy so there" thing when discussing a point made by Nadal?
It's a great smash. End of discussion.
Wow, that was just flat out SICK! Now if Gasquet would toughen up a bit he could do some great things.
ive actually seen nadal hit that jumping overhead a couple times i think. no sampras sure, but it stil oozes talent. that shot is very very hard to time right. unreal that pete could do it consistently with an 85 in racket.
i like this one done by roddick http://youtube.com/watch?v=aNFwxjifqq8
Not like he actually hit an overhead though, he bottled one earlier in the match however.
Rafa shouldn't have cut Chela's behind like that, and to add insult to injury with such a smash.
Who won that match again? Good shot though, definitely.
Gasquet will be the greatest when he eventually grows up
In his mind maybe, but I will eat my watches if that ever happens.
chela's been a constant top 40 for the last 5 years and a threat on clay to anyone (except nadal, of course). so pay him some respect.
on topic, how can you dont admire nadal's passion?? great smash.
