Whereas he once backed off attacking shorter balls, he's now more poised and sees those shots as opportunities to end the point.

All these elements combined make for a more complete, assured Rafa; no longer does every point have to be an epic battle of attrition. Is it difficult to introduce changes when Nadal has been so successful for so long competing with his distinctive style of play? Well, we still have our differences about that Both Charly [Moya] and I would rather have him build on the foundation that's led to where he is today, but it's hard to persuade Rafa sometimes. We'd rather he be more assertive than continue to sit back and wait. And how have you convinced him to be more aggressive?
It is one thing to have an arsenal of weapons and a whole other thing to be swayed into utilizing it. I think Rafa has been coming around to that little by little.
In his mind, he's managed to win Grand Slams without playing this "refined" way; he's gained praise and found success by engaging in drawn-out affairs and wearing down opponents. To give you an example: Back in , his game was stellar, and he performed spectacularly throughout the season; in my opinion, though, the present version of Rafa looks more qualified to build a point and to work over an opponent.
These days, he's dictating play more; he shouldn't be playing the "sit back and wait" game. I think he is realizing the value of building up a point with a more pointed attack and he's evolving into a more well-rounded player in the process. You have put a lot of emphasis on the word "build. In my mind, as soon as the ball bounces, Rafa should be on top of it, ready for contact, prepared for impact. Obviously, if you're playing an inspired [Roger] Federer and catch him on one of his days, that might not be the best approach every single point because of the way Federer strikes the ball and how it comes toward an opponent.
Anything short, however, must be struck in a way to make Federer pay. Opportunities like those must not be wasted; chances to go on the offense must be handled with aggression. It's important for Rafa to place himself as close to the location of the bounce as possible to guarantee he's the one building the point in his favor. When one is sitting back in a comfort zone, chances are the opponent is settling down and into a groove as well. This season, Nadal holds the best win per cent on hard court at 88 per cent I've said this a lot lately: In the past, there was the sense that certain opponents and styles could defeat us on this surface in three-set tournaments.
Now, I think there must be a chain of events and circumstances for us to lose. Historically it has always been better to play five sets, because if Rafa got off to a rough start, he would have that much more time to recover and find his form.
