I admire Nadal's stubborn comments about playing physically and yet maintain a strong mental ability but losing to Djokovic so many times, did he not realised yet that to beat him , he had to change and introduce a new game plan. Maybe he should watch their video matches and I myself observed that Djokovic has perfected on how to become No.1 in the world, his shots were exquisite and 'bang on', although he make mistakes, but that is very few and far between. Nadal is a very good player but to remain on top, his troublesome knees must be his priorities and running around, chasing the ball etc must be putting a lot of strain on his body. Still, he is surrounded with brilliant people guiding him e.g. Uncle Toni and surely they know how Nadal should play but for longevity in the sport,and win more Slams and trophies,its time, just a bit, here and there,devise a new strategy to winning ways again, reaching the finals so many times, is just not enough anymore while Djokovic is playing well. I wish Nadal all the best and make this year, your year.
