Lately people has been discussing how to beat Nadal.The fact is, apart from Nadal, Murray and Simon, people keep losing to federer quite easily and using the wrong tactics against him. I know i know, you are gonna say that the guy is great, won 13 grand slams and would still probably beat most of them regardless tactics, but i was watching his match against Kiefer and noticed: - Everybody knows Federer weakness, which is arguably his backhand, so please pros, stop trying to move him from side to side and playing "all or nothing" against federer. Unless you´re Tsonga or maybe two or three more guys, it wont work.you have to copy Simon. Fair enough, i know its not that simple, but the best way to beat Federer is to try to retrieve everything to his backhand, medium-pace and run, run and run. I know they would still probably lose to him anyway, but in my humble opinion, that way you have a better chance of susprising him on a day-off. Facts: Simon and Guillermo cañas proved my theory more than once.
