Rafa’s Amazing Forehand

The video was recorded at BNP Pariba, Indian Wells 2014. In fact this video is from Nadal’s practice vs. Stan Wawrinka. We can see his signature serve and then amazing “on-the-run forehand”. In this point Rafa is barely reaching the ball but with his fast acceleration on the shot he is able to strike an amazing ball down the line. Point played out like this;

  • Lefty (Nadal) serves wide-out pulls the opponent of the court
  • Stan returns amazing crosscourt backhand
  • Rafa reaches the ball and goes forehand down-the-line as Stan is still on the backhand side
