Many have tried, but few have succeeded. The reason why Rafael Nadal has eluded the tennis elite for a long, long time. Even people who follow the live tennis odds aren’t too sure what makes the Spaniard such a formidable powerhouse in tennis competitions. Most chalk it up to luck, others have acknowledged the man’s talent.
Marcos Giron has been one of the people to ponder what makes Nadal such an accomplished player even though everyone is training just as hard as he is and following the same religious and meticulous routine the Spaniard is. Then again, Giron sees what makes Nadal just the player he is:
“we think it’s taken for granted how disciplined he is, his shots are just phenomenal.”
It’s one thing to have a routine, it’s another thing to be a disciplined player that exerts the long hours of training into every single shot. This, Giron thinks, gives Nadal a big edge. There is more though as Nadal is also able to play other opponents and bluff them in a direct exchange on the court. His balls are directed not only technically but also strategically. Conserve energy and make the other player run more – that has worked well for Nadal.
