Marion Bartoli reckons Rafael Nadal is not able to generate the same amount of power

Marion Bartoli reckons Rafael Nadal is not able to generate the same amount of power that he used to generate some time back and that’s the reason his game has gone downhill.

According to Bartoli, pace is a vital aspect of Nadal’s game and he will have to do something to make sure he hits the ball as hard as he did in the past.

Speaking as an expert on a television channel a few days ago, Bartoli said, “Rafael’s shots are just not that powerful anymore and thus, as an opponent, you are not hurried up.”

“If you have a look at the speeds at which he has been serving of late, it’s only around 115 miles which is not enough. It’s desperately needed for him to find that old speed from somewhere.”

When asked if she would still like to keep Nadal in Big 4, Bartoli said, “Well, the kind of game he is playing right now, I would definitely say no. But, what he has done in the past, you have to take that into account as well. He has been absolutely brilliant on the tour over a number of years.”

However, in the views of another former player Pete Sampras, Nadal’s struggle at the moment is more mental than anything else.

In Sampras’ words, “Nadal appears to be anxious when he steps onto the court these days. He is not confident enough and thus, his intimidating capability is slowly fading. The players are now not afraid to take him on.” Read more »
