Nadal, the king of laterite, continued his strong performance in Roland Garros. The champion of the 12th games swept the American player MacDonald 6-1, 6-0, 6-3. In the game, MacDonald tried to sneak in Nadal with a underhand serve, but the serve was high and floating right in Nadals arms. The red clay Kings forehand stroke taught the Americans a lesson.
After the game, reporters also asked Nadals attitude towards the service. The Spaniard said: if you win points, its good tactics; if you lose points, its bad tactics. Thats all. For example, today is not a good tactic for McKinsey, but for Burberry, if he scores, it is a good tactic. Its part of the game and I dont think its a question of respect. If you do it to win points, do it; if you want to improve the tactics of the game, I support it 100%; but if you want to humiliate your opponent, its not good
Obviously Nadal believes that this attempt to serve is part of MacDonalds tactics and there is no disrespect for the game and the opponent, so there is no need to go into it. And his statement actually helps many fans to define whether the starting serve involves respecting the boundaries between the game and the opponent.
