  5. Move In Rafa Or Move On

    Here are five major technical flaws that have periodically infected Rafa’s ground-strokes since winning the 2013 US Open:

    1 – Poor court positioning – standing too far behind the baseline between shots

    2 – Poor balance – leaning or lunging backwards upon striking the ball – instead of properly transitioning his weight forward through ball contact

    3 – Poor footwork – standing too close to the ball when striking it, especially on his forehand wing

    4 – Poor racquet acceleration – not fully committing to his shots – not maintaining full racquet speed throughout his entire swing

    5 – Poor racquet follow through – swinging over the ball instead of through the ball – creating too much spin and not enough pace and depth on his shots

    I emphasize that these are INTERMITTENT flaws occurring not on every shot, but on far too many shots for Rafa to be as consistent and successful as he used to be. They stem from his increasingly cautious, defensive, passive shot selection and mindset over the last 2-plus years.

    The good news is that Rafa can correct these flaws fairly quickly and easily with proper coaching from someone whose tennis knowledge and expertise he totally respects and will listen to – from a super-coach such as Andre Agassi, Mats Wilander or Jimmy Connors. The bad news is that he appears totally unwilling to hire such a person.

    It has become all too obvious that Rafa can no longer compete for slam trophies with his current support team. A major personnel change is needed ASAP if he plans to ever win another big tournament again.

    PS – I am a former club teaching pro, successful intercollegiate and amateur player and lifelong observer of the pro game dating back to the early 1970s, so I know more than most fans do about the sport of tennis. Furthermore, my observations about Rafa’s tactical and technical problems have been echoed by several top coaches and former players such as Rod Laver, Chris Evert, John McEnroe, Nick Bollettieri, Larry Stefanki and Paul Annacone.

      U missed the most important point sir……
      he is lacking confidence…… which affecting his play……..
      once ge got that confidence back he will be top again

      The defence for rafa is the key

        His confidence is down because his game is down. His game is down because of the technical flaws I listed above. If he fixes the technical flaws, his game and confidence will follow.
