Speed No doubt that Nadal is one of the fastest guys on tour. He retrieves drop shots with ease and moves very well side-to-side. Groundstrokes Everybody has always been raving about his forehand. Nobody ever mentions his backhand. Unlike the left wing of Carlos Moya, Nadal's backhand is a true weapon. He can go cross-court or down-the-line, and he seems to be able to pass with it when he needs to. Serve He was clay-court reared, and pretty much the only clay-courters who had big serves were Moya and Guga. After Wimbledon, it seems like Nadal can serve in the 120 range; it's just that he chooses not to, especially on clay. Mental Fortitude Who can contest that this guy is one of the toughest guys out there? So, is Nadal really just a one-dimensional clay courter? I think not.
