Makes the opponent wait after he is ready to receive the serve. Never the first one to be on the service line ready to serve.

Wedgie fixing.

Fix the shorts in back, pull both sides of the shirt in front first the left side then the right, nose to ear on left, nose to ear on right......finally serve! oh yes. then towels off after every point.

Loud grunting destroys opponents ear drums.

He stays far back behind the baseline, assuming the stance, position and poise like this is the last point to be played on planet Earth.

Nadal dictates the pace of the match, forcing his opponents to play to his slow and deliberate tempo. By taking over this control, opponents will feel increasingly powerless.
