The King of Clay Rafael Nadal
has won the
most numbers of French Open titles.
It is almost impossible to beat him at
Let's decode the strategy to defeat the French Open King
The King of Clay Nadal needs time to set up his shot and strategize against his oponents.
In 2013 French Open Daniel Brands spared no time in getting the ball back to Nadal.
Returning the ball as early as possible reduces the time for Nadal to strategize.
Nadal easily hits when given a high loopy topspin but he struggles when the ball comes flat. This is the strategy that Robin Soderling used against Nadal at the 2009 French open.
Players mindset is important. One needs to be confident that they can beat anyone even the Clay King .
