Having had two Grand Slams this year, the free-spirit Spanish bohemian, two-handed backhand “Rafa” (Nadal) will comfortably wind up 2019 as world’s No. 1, but the 33-year-old’s left-handed serves which won 59.6 per cent of his second-serve games, topping him at the table of second-serve points, had doubtlessly laid off the groundworks of a majority of his successes, Nadal admitted in an interview with a Spanish newspaper AS published on Tuesday, the 24th of December 2019.
On top of that, with less than a week left in 2019, Nadal got a thrill out of his biggest career successes this year, winning the US Open, the Davies Cup and a record-settling 12th French open, however, did not disremember to toast over his second-serves’ improvements that gave him the boost to round off a successful season which he had this year.
Aside from that, although the Avant-grade Spaniard has multiple flairs at his left-hand for forehands and an off-the-wall angst at his two-handed backhand since he was borne as a right-handed, yet nodding to his progresses made over the second serves this year Nadal was quoted saying on Tuesday’s (December 24th) AS interview that he was delighted to witness how his serves had worked out this season adding, “I think the first too, although it is true that if the second [serve] does well, it gives you the confidence to execute the other. ” Rafa won 90.1 per cent of his first-serve games thus far, stats by ATP revealed.
