Did you notice Murray’s rendition of Nadal’s high shoulder ball against Federer @ Shanghai? No, you didn’t!!!!

Posted by tennisplanet on October 19, 2010

Many times even when the ball came into his forehand hitting zone begging to be punished, Murray instead elected to step back and pass for that bullet train for a looping ball with enough pace, depth AND placement to deny Federer the luxury of running around for his forehand thereby replicating the Nadal shot that bothers Federer no end, as best as he can.

100% of the time it evoked a far weaker return as Federer not only had to deal with that bounce but also had to generate his own pace while on the back foot. About 50% of the time it probably won Murray the point – directly or down the line.

    Yes I noticed that. Don’t remember him getting that much bounce against Federer before, but it worked this time and it bothered him. Among other things.

    Yes, of course we noticed. If anyone on this site is still watching tennis they would notice.

    TP, did you notice the new high loop backhand from Fed? It sure worked to make Djoko take a step back on the add court back to the baseline.
