Well he will I think this match should be a blueprint for rafa to constantly play from the baseline through rest of his career, he has used his weapons to grind opponents enough now time to overpower them with it like he did todayHe can't beat them until he improves his return position on grass.
Absurd logic: if none of them are great at clay but are great on HC then they do have issues with clay. (Which they don't... I am just following your strange contradictory logic.)Clay was his natural surface. Players mostly find hard courts their natural surface now. They have no issues on clay, but they aren't great on it.
Who says Rafa is a specialist?But cant u understand? He is saying a specialist is more dangerous then an allsurface.
I dont say Rafa is. I say Rafa is facing no specialist. Like the other guy tried to explain for youWho says Rafa is a specialist?
I have never EVER heard of a surface specialist who won all 4 slams - and multiple slams on all surfaces.
Him being BETTER on clay does NOT make him a specialist. That word implies a struggle to succeed on other surfaces.
Learn the difference.
Is this a prank?
Was just try make u understand what the guy ment but you seem not willing take it in. He said in past there where claycourt specialists and maybe its harder deal with them then todays allcourtersI believe both of you dislike Rafa.
I have no other explanation for your illogical line of reasoning.
Or you dislike/disrespect clay.
I already explained myself. We are running around in circles now.Was just try make u understand what the guy ment but you seem not willing take it in. He said in past there where claycourt specialists and maybe its harder deal with them then todays allcourters
I understood the most important thing: you both dislike Rafa, and are trying to discredit him any way you can. Making up arguments that have no feet to stand on.Well ur comments looks like u understand nothing what he ment
Are Fed and Novak's resumes on clay almost as good as their ones on grass and hard court ?Not sure how people can say Nadal is as well balanced and complete a player as Djokovic or Federer. Can we honestly look at Nadal’s resume and say it’s more balanced than Federer’s or Djokovic’s? I’m not sure how you can look at Nadal’s resume and says he’s almost as good on grass and hard court as he is on clay.
Total opposite of what you said. Clay requires brute raw power. Grass demands great timing.Nadal moves great on grass. The difference is grass actually allows and rewards the use of weapons such as a great serve and forehand. Clay court tennis takes all power out of the game.
I said that would be the case two weeks ago.Nadal was helped by the slowness of the court which was slower than clay in the summer. While his FH topspin bounce was only about three inches less, players like Djokovic and Sinner couldn’t hit through his defenses this week even though they tried hitting bigger and bigger. Nadal usually doesn’t have the time to run around the court like he did today on other surfaces.
So to be successful on clay you need to be able to hit winners and force errors out of the opponent by pushing them back which requires brute strength as one shot wont end the rally. On grass if you time the ball well you can hit a 90 mph winner without needing raw power. On clay you have to generate that power as its so slow.Umm how? Nadal doesn't have raw power on his serve and backhands... In fact none of the great French Open champions of the past did.
