for watch the tweener clic cher => http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7BgPrbGb5vA
I thought he tweeted he really hopes Novak does NOT play the French open this year.
that was a pretty shot, too bad not a winner
Average shot from an Average player.
Hm. Almost as good as Federer.
or just watch this.
Nadal's best tweener ever!! Also, behold Fedal's movement, they're teleporting on the surface...
Rafa has to execute a few more of these and hit some tweener winners under pressure to put him on par with Roger. I've seen a couple of sad attempts by Novak. He cannot truly achieve GOAT-dom until he gets better at this.
Aside from Federer, prolific/notorious tweener-ers include G Vilas (la Gran Willie), Y Noah, I Nastase, A Agassi, F Santoro, L Hewitt and F Gonzales. On the women's side we had Gaby Sabatini, Patricia Tarabini, Mary Pierce, Gigi Fernandez and others. In Aug 1990, Tennis magazine featured Gigi in a pictorial article on "How to Hit Hot Shots". She demonstrated the tweener, the Bucharest Backfire and other several other "hot shots".
Nice one Rafa
That was an awesome shot.
More awesome than the shot itself was seeing Nadal's coordination. He was running full speed and effortlessly executed that shot without any trouble.
Tweener's can be dangerous..I'm not talking about the obvious danger everyone has in mind..I'm talking about the possiblity of your legs getting tangled with the racquet between them. I saw it happen to Michael Llodra once. Thankfully, he managed to regain his balance.
Holy f*ck I forgot how good that match was.
Too bad Almagro didnt follow his perfect lob to the net. He could have volleyed it for a winner.
Nadal's best tweener was probably the topspin lob tweener vs Dj. But really, tweeners aren't going to win you a tennis match. They are played less often than any shot in tennis, hence are the most useless.
This is what is called 'taking a page out of somone else's book. Very well executed by Rafa.
here's the second part.
This is easily the best tweener out of any tweeners roger federer has ever hit. Rafael Nadal hits one straight down the line, to nicolas almagro's backhand. AND Rafael Nadal can hit tweener lobs. Rafael Nadal owns the two best tweener shots in world history.
He is moonballing even on the tweener.
Rafael Nadal's one wasn't a winner.
Rafael Nadal has missed more tweeners in his career than made them, unlike Roger Federer.
We all know you love to imagine what's between Rafael Nadal's feet when he hits the tweener.
Don't forget Santoro - he pulled one (or more?) against Federer himself.
You are correct. The other thing is that federer only hits tweeners for show whereas Nadal hits them to win.
federer is a show-off whereas Nadal is a champion.
A tweener topspin lob looks the most difficult, and that's what Nadal hit (for a clean winner) vs Dj a while ago.
Don't you ever get tired of being wrong? Very good shot, but Roger's two at the US Open are better. More velocity. Period-end of story
Obviously so is Roger- He has won more slams and more titles than Rafa.
But not as many Masters Shields and not a singles Gold medal and not a Davis Cup. But yes both are champions. I agree.
You just fed the local Troll. He's on his 5th or 6th userid.
Almagro's inability to come to the net and win the point was sad.
Distorted perspective here. Federer is not a champion??? Sure Roger hits some of them for show -- just about everyone who hits tweeners (including moi) does so. Once in a while it might be the best option available, but more often than not, it is not. This applies to Rafa as well as to Roger and all the other tweener-ers I listed in my previous post.
Roger has quite a few tweeners that won him the rally. I believe that his success rate on his tweeners is probably better than Rafa's.
Nope, can't leave out the Magician. (I actually did list him -- should've highlighted his name)
