Will Carlos Moya Really Add Anything To Rafael Nadal’s Game?

Well, finally, Rafael Nadal has a new voice in his camp. In Carlos Moya, Nadal gets a fellow Mallorcan who’s a former No. 1, former Grand Slam champion and who’s got a proven record of making a different – he just led Milos Raonic to the No. 3 ranking.

Honestly, I’m all for it and I applaud Rafa for opening up to new ideas. I think he realized he’s not going to beat Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, etc, by maintaining status quo, so why not give it a shot?

At 31, Nadal doesn’t have much time left in that hourglass. Next season and 2018 and that will likely be it. His knees are bad, the wrist is now an ongoing issue and there will be new injuries, no one is immune (if Roger Federer isn’t!).

And at his age he wants one thing: win more Grand Slams. It’s a very tough ask but I think he still can do it in Paris but he needs a new perspective and Moya can help with that.

Under Toni and Roig, etc, Nadal was going stale. There was nothing new, really, just everything in decline. Serve not as great, forehand not as great, shot placement, etc. That fear factor he had was gone, gone long ago.

So hopefully Moya can stop the bleeding and inject some life into Rafa’s game. Maybe give Nadal some more belief and add a much-needed spark. Perhaps even adjust Rafa’s training regimen in effort to keep him healthier.

I said when Djokovic jettisoned Becker that Novak was good enough to not need a “supercoach”, but Rafa I think can reap some rewards.

Moya’s task will be to get that forehand back online and get more zip on that serve. And we saw Rafa uncharacteristically blow many leads of late, so that’s something that Moya will have to address. Can he do it? I don’t know as it’s hard fighting Father Time, but at least it’s a start. At least Rafa’s really trying. And sometimes that’s all you can ask.

RZ Says:

He may provide motivation and support, the same way Edberg did for Federer. I think we all judge the “super coaches” by a high standard (i.e., did Player X win a slam under Coach Y) but that can be an unrealistic standard with only 4 slams available per year and periods where one player is proving hard to beat and winning most of them.


sinha71 Says:

Nadal beat Murray just last April don’t you forget.

This is more to do with his confidence and mental strength than anything else.

Fed talked about it after his back problem and Djoko said that is why he hired Becker all along.

I am not sure that Moya is the answer and it is likely two years too late but at least he is trying for a long overdue change.

I don’t care what anybody says. If the players BELIEVE it makes a difference, it already does. That is half of the battle right there!


J-Kath Says:

Sinha 71

I sincerely hope Nadal comes back strong irrespective of who wins a match between Andy vs Rafa. Let’s hope both of them play their best (or close to) their best tennis.


Carol Says:

Rafa is 30 years old and even that he has been through a bad patch if he is healthy he could beat to anyone like he did before. He has now a new voice, he is training well and seems to be healthy. I think he has a chance to win one or two more GS


rognadfan Says:

at 4:19pm:
I totally agree. Specifically, If he can back close to his previous self when hitting one particular shot (you know which one) + added zip on serve always helpful, he is right up there with Nole or Murray or any other guy.

Confidence is an amazing yet bizzare thing, in some respect. He may actually get it back by just having a new face (a friendly one) in his camp.
I am hopeful. Having said that, he may win a grand slam (has to happen in 2017) but ‘slams’ is a bit of a stretch to me; Just like the idea of Roger winning another ‘slam’ is too long of a stretch.


FedExpress Says:

Federer came closer to win a GS than Nadal in the last 3 years. and that more than one time.


sinha71 Says:

Federer came very close to winning several times in the last three years.

Nadal came even closer by actually winning one.


Deidre Says:

Time will tell!


rognadfan Says:

There is no denying Fed came so close and had real shots of actually winning them. As much as I wish Roger to come back stronger than ever, it’s always an uncertain path when you come back after a fairly long gap (that too caused by an injury).


CV. Says:

Moya’s task will not be an easy one.
Uncle Tony needs to remove himself and give Moya total control.
Give the process a fair chance without his influence.

Change Nadal’s practice formula, I think he OVER Practice.
Work on His serve. Hes serve does not help when he need an emergency point. ( Serena’s serve get her out of difficulties 99% of the time )
Nadal has the worst serve of the top ten. Much work is needed here.
His concentration, focus, needs to close out games when he gets the chance. Perhaps sessions with a sport specialist in this field, Whatever it takes.
I know Nadal is capable of winning, He just needs to get it all together. Hopefully he will achieve this under Moya’s guidance.


sinha71 Says:

C.V. is 110% correct.


J-Kath Says:

J.S. Got in to Twitter but couldn’t proceed (although my nephew tells me he could have got your email). Your charming picture is one of 4 of your family.

Anyway, there is really no chance of me going to the US within the next year – although I have two other invites one to Virginia and the other to Pittsburgh.

Tennis wise- my vaulting ambition is the FO – staying with one sister and going with another (if I can persuade the latter). If I make it I’ll wear a top addressed to Rafa which says: JS; AM; Willow; Okie send U their deepest devotion. Willing to consider another message if asked.

Obviously, a Rafa vs Andy match will be an exception.


Temple Says:

Feels like too little too late.


AndyMira Says:

@JK…I want to add a message to Rafa…”Rafa,AM asked your kisses and hugs but first you have to kiss me first,and then when i go back to TX,i will give it to her personally”..


J-Kath Says:

AM:

You’ve got me scratching my head….. and I just washed my hair as have emergency appt. with Dentist early tomorrow. Maybe this is affecting my brain -so please can you re-phrase re. Rafa please.


J-Kath Says:

AM: Re-read again – think I’ve got it….I have to be the bearer of a kiss with Rafa that will then be transferred to you. So opportune that I’m getting my teeth sorted out as obviously it will have to be a “French kiss”.


AndyMira Says:

@JK….Gotcha!!!!Ha ha ha ha…make sure don’t ‘linger’ too long when you kiss Rafa,okay?…I’m not sure Okie,willow or J.S. will appreciate that!!And Okie got a black belt in ‘Destroying Margot’s Sofa’…


J-Kath Says:

AM – If you’ve heard of a “French kiss” – you’ll know it takes time and dedication!!!!!! PS: J.S. is male – he’d probably do a big hug….


AndyMira Says:

JK…J.S IS A MALE??OH.MY.GOD!!!To the moon and back,i thought J.S. has a beautiful assets like me!!!!Oho oho ho ho ho…

About French kiss…FO next year right?There’s plenty of time to practice..I can be your assistant 24/7 ma’am,just ask!Heh heh heh…


J-Kath Says:

AM: J.S. does have beautiful assets – in his wife and his 3 grown-up daughters.

Ah, you do know about the French kiss – apologies, I thought it was almost uniquely a UK expression. A French kiss at the French Open seems appropriately the way to go???? Of course, you can be my Assistant – but if you are there it should be the other way around…….I’ll pin him to a chair for you, after that it is all up to you.


AndyMira Says:

JK…Pin Rafa to a chair?Hmmm…sound a little bit kinky!He he he..Willow and Okie will kick my a@#,that’s for sure!


J-Kath Says:

AM: Maybe one way to get Okie to fly ????

PS: Seriously, why don’t you go…been looking up ticket cost and it is approx. $115 per day for normal folk (unless you are Donald Trump etc.). I think I know you have school age children but possibly you have cousins, grandparents who would be delighted to take over for a week or so?

After all you must see Rafa before he retires…2/3 years?


AndyMira Says:

JK…Ha ha ha..Thank you very much for your suggestion..i really really appreciated it..But,you see…i don’t think i have an opportunity to do that in this life..not in a million years!Your life and my life wayyyyyyyyy different…How can i think about see Rafa playing live while i even can afford to treat my children eat a KFC only once a month!can’t afford to do more than that…And i think i can fit my house in your master bedroom only!Ha ha ha…But,i still feel lucky because i still can watch Rafa or Andy or Novak or Roger through TV…So,that is wayyyyyyyy okay to me..


jalep Says:

AM, you are sweet and humble – and a great tennis fan — exactly the sort that should be at every ATP and WTA match you want. You and me in our next life, right? fingers-crossed πŸ˜™


AndyMira Says:

Ha ha ha…Thanks J!Yeah..in the next life J…Don’t forget to look for me there okay?My greatest wish is to know my dear posters here personally and to know their faces but i guess not everyone very eager to know me!He he..So,dating with me in the next life J!

PS…J..you’re also one of my favourite poster here..very cool,kind,nice,friendly,very knowledgeable about tennis and i’m very grateful to know you J…Thank you for willing to be my friend!LOVE YOU J!!WOOOHOOOO!!


J-Kath Says:

AndyMira

I am distressed by yours at 10.09, even though you cherish what you do have. I will be making up my mind whether to stay where I am before Summer 2017. If I do decide to sell this property, I will be in touch with you privately.

Changing the subject, Storm Barbara is now scheduled to travel as far south as North Wales – not sure if Margot lives North or South – fingers crossed that we all don’t lose power.


Okiegal Says:

@J-Kath….Funny you mentioned flying …….just last night I had a long conversation about that with a dear friend of mine. I said if I wasn’t such a wuss she and I could go to Australia. She is a sports enthusiast too, and I have got her hooked on Rafa! Got to thinking how long I would be in the air…….nixed that idea……you see I am very claustrophobic…….I just don’t think I could deal with all that closeness……she said that is why you fly first class. As much as I would enjoy seeing the big guns play, i just don’t believe I can get on the big bird…..sad to say…..but I’m not alone on this flying thing!


AndyMira Says:

JK…I’m very very sorry..didn’t mean to make you distressed!I swear!When you made your generous suggestion up there,i could have lied to you easily but i don’t want to because 1]A muslim are forbidden to lie,we’re get sinned if we do that 2]I don’t see a good reason why i have to do that to you when you’re so kindly made an honest suggestion 3]I am a stupidly and naively an honest person,i don’t know how to lie!

JK…I have a bad feelings about this..I am so sorry if i upset you okay?


Okiegal Says:

@Andy Mira……Settle down girl……I’m not violent …not able to kick too high anymore! Lol With each year I’m getting older……

I didn’t know J.S. was a male….how did I miss that????

@JS welcome aboard! It’s lovely to have another Rafa fan here! I’m not posting as much as I used too…..perhaps it is because Rafa has been idle for sometime now. But anyway a big “hello” from Okie!


Margot Says:

AM @10.09
You made me sad. Perhaps when you’re children are grown and flown you’ll like another player as much as you like Rafa and will have enough dosh/spare time to watch some live tennis.
Maybe Rafa will even still be playing, veterans or doubles.
Fingers crossed.


jalep Says:

Whoops, there goes my vision of JS french kissing Rafa.

Thanks for your kindness, AM. You are perfect as you are – never change!!


J-Kath Says:

Okiegal

My longest best friend (who lives in London)- has never ever been able to take the Tube; go into a Lift; or even consider going anywhere by plane – so you are not alone. She takes cruises, goes by bus or train or drives.

Could you take a cruise?
I can’t go in any form of boat (after a small speed-boat experience off Capri which dived in and out of caves) – I was so sick that I swear I went down a dress size after 2 hours.


Okiegal Says:

@AM……Your post made me feel a little downhearted for you, but I can tell from your comments that you are a strong woman and handle your life in the most upbeat way! I would love to be able to see the day you could go watch the big guns play. You love tennis too and are very knowledgeable about the sport…..maybe someday for you Mira….maybe some day I will fly…..


Margot Says:

A long time ago in a Galaxy far, far away I met Gloria from Illinois.. ……… Illinois is a long, long way from just about anywhere. Gloria didn’t travel, much.


Okiegal Says:

@JK…..A cruise has crossed my mind. Don’t know if I’m the sea sick type or not…….but could stand to lose a few pounds! Lol The ocean cruise seems like a very romantic mode of travel to me…..just watched the old black and white movie “The Affair” starring Irene Dunne and Boyer just yesterday……..love old movies, guess I am a hopeless romantic!! Cheers!


Okiegal Says:

@Margot…..are you making fun of me?? Lol….just call me Gloria………Oklahoma is a land far far away……


AndyMira Says:

Hey guys…ha ha ha..i see i made a little drama tonight!Didn’t meant to…But i bet if you guys know my life story,i can bet with my chicken grave that none of you can save from whipping!bawling,jibbering!

@Okie…I don’t know about strong but i lead a very hard life since i was 3,4 years old..mom only planted a ginger to sell for money,just for a few penny to support 4 siblings…Sell a banana leaf also for a few dolar..Okie,you used to say that i’ve always positive in thinking,but to be able to survive in this cruel world,i had to..can’t afford to think negative when all things around you just want to swallow you alive!

@M…Thank you for your kind words BUT yeah..he he..don’t think what you said going to happen either..But that’s okay,when we know something is out of reach then we don’t dare to dream..maybe someone else dream but unfortunately not mine…

@J…J.S. french kissing Rafa?Ha ha ha..now,that’s a good visual!


Margot Says:

OK: I am teasing you, but Gloria was a real person.
Bill Bryson is from Illinois and he has travelled so far I believe he now lives in Yorkshire.


Margot Says:

We should set up a “Send AM To the French Open” fund.
I wonder if it could be done….SEAN where are you?


AndyMira Says:

@M…Don’t you dare!


Margot Says:

I’m not sure if it could be done AM but why shouldn’t something nice happen to you?


J-Kath Says:

Andy Mira:

You must not have a bad feeling…totally forbidden. Let’s trust in ourselves and in what we believe – this thought comes from a lady in my wee town who visited me yesterday and gave me a lovely scarf that one Mini group put me on the “to help” list.
Sometimes people surprise e.g. I don’t even know who is in the group…but it was gracious and kind. And if you can bear a touch of my dreadful humour……I’ve got so many scarves I may start a shop….


J.S. Says:

OMG you have had FUN today – head spinning catching up!

FRENCH KISSING everyone, well everyone but Djokovic, LOL

Can we just agree Rafa rules? Who said Federer can beat Nadal currently, not happening!!!I am happy for Rafa and think it’s a great decision and most of all some one he/his team trusts.

Amazing how tight knit Rafa and team are. I admire it and respect it! Wish we could take a little of that loyalty to America or anyplace in the world. We would all be much happier!


AndyMira Says:

M,JK…Please,don’t do anything..Please,i meant it..There’s so many reason that is very inappropriate to talk about here..such as i have a health problem,my duty as a wife..a Muslim wives are different than any other wives..not to mention that FO start clash beautifully with a Fasting Month..That is very big for all Muslim all over the world..Ok?M,JK?I don’t know whether you guys serious or not BUT,I REALLY REALLY APPRECIATES YOUR THOUGHT GUYS!!God,you’re going to make me cry!!


Margot Says:

AM : I was totally serious, but if you don’t want it, I’ll say no more.
Would’ve been down to Sean anyway.
Take care hon.


jalep Says:

AM…it’s complicated, huh. Not all of us can just take off for anywhere, even if the opportunity it’s handed to us on a plate.

Everyone means well here, I think. Speaking for myself, I respect your honesty and warmth. Don’t cry please. Smile and laugh…and get some sleep, okay! The roosters will be crowing soon in your time zone, I’d guess.


AndyMira Says:

M…No hard feelings?Now,i feel very bad…I wish i could explain my reason in detail,i’m sure you would understand..

M…Thank you for your kindness!I LOVE YOU!He he..


AndyMira Says:

J…Very complicated,you’re absolutely right on that…And yeah,i know everyone means well..and if only i’m single,i don’t have to think about anyone else except myself..Don’t have a responsibility etc etc,i surely will grasp this once in a lifetime opportunity and have fun with Rrrafa!Ha ha..Oh my God J,i can’t believe,just because my little sappy story!I didn’t know,i’m this important!Ha ha..


J-Kath Says:

Lovely to see J.S. back. When U get back to the States please keep in contact.

AM: I’ve had lots of contact with Muslims – have lived in a Muslim country and more recently the huge immigration into Glasgow – we had 3 Muslims on our Committee; we had a Muslim food stand at 2 Festivals; we had a lot of respect for each other (they loved Kathy’s pans!!! – seems silly but…)and I understand about the Fast.

There were many wonderful times and to do something small for them (i.e. write a letter) was so rewarding…over-whelming gratitude. So please do not think I don’t understand – I understand more than you know.


Margot Says:

AM: of COURSE no hard feelings, silly woman! Don’t feel bad either, or you’ll make me feel bad!
I know your heart is gentle and kind and I wish only good things to happen to you, is all.


J.S. Says:

WOW what did I miss? Love/Peace guys this has nothing to do with Muslims, or being able to travel, i have worked 14 hour days and been smart w/ my money.
If Rafe is DONE, so am I and will save lots of $$$…..But, for now, I am enjoying what I can do!
I have actually gone out on a limb booking airfare, tickets, hotels on a very unpredicted 2017. Who ever has a bad life, I invite you to come come stay with me….
Life is complicated – lets make it simple!
PEACE


CV. Says:

Thank you Sinha71,

I am an Ardent & Loyal fan of Nadal’s.
He has had lots of misfortune that limited his time on Court.
He was forced to be absent at slams because of several injuries.
including an operation to remove his vermiform appendix. Dealing with his Parents Separation etc. but for these interruptions he might have, could have, won more clams.
Although three years late in coming, a change / addition is made to The Team, hopefully success will result. If all goes well; I see Nadal Returning To Winning Ways.


AndyMira Says:

JK…Okay,thank you for your understanding..i don’t underestimate your knowledge about Muslim JK,i just want to explain my situation..Can you imagine,if i don’t explain my situation and you guys seriously want to do something about me going to see Rafa and when the time come,i won’t be able to do that?All hell will break loose i tell you!

M…You said i’m a silly women and okie said i’m a silly girl…i guess i am silly..he he..YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!!!


Margot Says:

Lol AM I’m sure there would be a long queue waiting right behind you ready to stampede at the mere thought of seeing Rafa…


jalep Says:

It’s true about the queue, M.

A tennis-x go-fund account to send a tennis-x’er to a GS would be a great idea. Perhaps draw the willing and able names submitted out of a hat to find the winner…or make them beat us in bracket challenges :D


Okiegal Says:

@AM……no more talk of it……I respect your wishes!

On French kissing……..Am I too old for such nonsense??? NO WAY JOSEA!! Lol πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹


Okiegal Says:

@Mira…..You are a pretty awesome Chick yourself!!


J-Kath Says:

Andy Mira

“All hell will break loose i tell you!”

Yes, lass – I know exactly what you mean. Some of the solutions I experienced in the past were identical – but on other occasions there were wonderful individual solutions.

Is it OK to ask where you live? I think it is Malaysia?

I could put you in touch with a number of refugees/asylumseekers in Scotland if you think it would help. I don’t want to define help – rather say, their stories.

However, if you are happy and content, then we should leave it to you – I think? I’m sorry if somehow I have brought this to the fore – it was never my intention.

Sean and his site should take award for the best English teacher, some posters from broken english in no time speak and write perfect English:) Unfortunately it didn’t work for me, but I am slow to learn anyway.


J-Kath Says:

Glad you are OK AM – all that matters.

Yes, I suppose you are right – I do get embarrassed at lots of hugs etc. – doesn’t mean it’s not warming to know people are sending friendly messages. Some of my Xmas cards are over-whelming with messages – and weakens me.

Anyway I take your hug – I used to be different – I’d always turn up with strangers I’d met….my parents were fine but I got a hard time from a couple of my sisters. And to end with a chuckle (I hope) I once turned up at one of my sister’s wedding with two boy-friends.


Okiegal Says:

@JK……turning up at your sister’s wedding with two boyfriends sounds like a good movie plot to me!! Have a great holiday!!


Okiegal Says:

@Margot…..8 emojis….loving it!! Lol


Okiegal Says:

@jalep…..Thank you for my leetle Spanish bull….I πŸ’œ it!


J.S. Says:

I am female and thanks for letting me dream about some french kissing. Seriously they would have to call 911.
Glad you all are having fun getting me ready for kissing and not just any kissing…. FRENCH kissing!!!

Sounds better then a 20 minute hug, I would smack someone if they hugged me that long….

Where did you think I was male? I can’t keep up with you chatters :) AND I am serious about coming to any tournament and staying with me, I would welcome it!


AndyMira Says:

@Okie…I’m asking you to seriously consider go to FO next year..J.S. already made an offer to stay with her..Don’t fly if you’re scared but take a cruise..you will be very comfortable on the big ship..Ask a friend to go with you..It’s going to be awesome you and J.S. cheer for Rafa..


jalep Says:

Okie…I was giving you a French kiss too…from Rafa of course ;) hahaha (just kidding)

Oh okay, it’s nice to know J.S. is female after all. Hello J.S.!

_____________________________________________________________________

I’ll post this on this thread too in case any Federer Fans missed his livestream from Dubai practicing with Lucas Pouille – only hours ago. Warning: Fed appears paunchy and out of breath!

See what you think about Roger Federer’s readiness for 2017… starting with Hopman Cup in a couple weeks.

jalep Says:

Thanks, AM ;) you are tempting me to join FB – swore I’d never do it again – but I have questions for you. Googled Klang Selangor last night and it looks wonderful – lots of variety and diversity. I spent a semester on Guam and some pictures reminded me of how much I loved it there and my little spring break side-trip in Saipan.

Anyways….must get to work this morning. Yesterday I had off but duty calls. Have a great day…cheers some music to go:

J…PLEASE,I’M ASKING YOU TO JOIN FB..Don’t add anyone else,just me and Okie..Sometimes i want to talk about something so bad but don’t have anyone to talk to…About klang,i don’t know J..maybe beautiful but food is AMAZING!Thanks for the video J..Hope we can chat later J…have fun at work k?


jalep Says:

lol…you sure are a persuasive one, AM. I’m thinking fresh papaya, ginger, mangos, rice, lotsa rice, maybe a little fish. I was very young when in Guam and you made me think of this music – so one more before I leave…

J-Kath Says:

Ah Okiegal – Talk about brainless – that was/is me. PS: I did marry one of these 2 boyfriends – my lovely American.


AndyMira Says:

J…Have you ever heard or eat a king of fruit Durian?It’s delicious but urgh!a little bit smelly..and yeah once again thanks for the vid J..


J-Kath Says:

J.S. Did you have a sex change? I thought that was your wife on Twitter or one of your 3 daughters as part of your security arrangements. Ah well, seems I got it confused – I blame my whisky it pours too fast.

A Tennis-X Rafa fan would be ideal to join you – Okie is US-based, AndyMira is not free and Willow is UK-based. I think BBB and RZ are US based – however, it would be delightful if Okie could go – given that the tennis is North Anerican based she wouldn’t have to fly. Anyway, whatever will be, will be.


AndyMira Says:

Who’s wrong who’s right?Did J.S. prank us or something?He/she is very lucky i’m not there..otherwise i’m very tempted to sneak a little bit inside her/his pants!Just to be sure that is!


J-Kath Says:

Oh golly AndyMira – U are a very naughty lady. And I shouldn’t be laughing…shame on me.


AndyMira Says:

JK..I’m going crazy thinking about this…You said he’s a man and she said she’s a female…easy said “J.S…You strip naked now,do a selfie and post here on TX,so everybody can see whether you are a male or female…You hear?”…That’s it…That’s my holiday message to J.S..


J-Kath Says:

Andy Mira:

If I didn’t know better I’d say you are having a tipple of my Whisky.

I think J.S. will retort back – he/she seems a good sport in all ways. We shall wait with bated breath. Goodnight – midnight with me.


AndyMira Says:

Hey JK…He he he…I’m a great teaser..and i’m in the mood atm..Yeah good midnight to you JK..Sleep well..


J.S. Says:

I am in Italy on a trip until Jan. 2nd so internet is hit/miss. Go to my twitter and you will see pics of me, female!!! Hate to disappoint, but NO penis folks.
Happy Holiday’s – seems Tennis starts Thursday! What’s with Federer “out of breath”? Is that factual or my sweet Rafa fans starting rumours?

Peace my chatters!!


J-Kath Says:

J.S. – Did see your pic on twitter but thought it was all part of your devilish clever disguise.

I’ve read various “Fed” comments – a number of them do say “out of breath” and “over-weight”- but again it could be one of those “devilish clever disguises”.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So now you are in Italy – what terrible assignments you get – don’t you…shame on your Bosses!


AndyMira Says:

Oh!Da@#!!…There goes my good chance to see J.S naked!!


J.S. Says:

No men in my pics on twitter, you have the wrong one!!
My only man in RAFA :)
