It’s hard not to be mesmerised by this clip of a Nadal practice session. Look at Nadal’s shots and how the ball loops into the air and then the rotations start and it lands in. For a guy who hits a pretty flat shot, this get me very jealous.
I find practice videos the best to study top player techniques and this video really gets you close to the action of Rafael Nadal striking the ball.
It can’t be easy dealing with that amount of TOP SPIN!
If you think it’s gear and not only technique, or you simply just want to look cool striking the ball, this is what Rafa plays with:
Babolat Aero Pro Drive (tennis racket)
Babolat RPM Blast (tennis string)
