Subject: Nadal falling in love with slice backhand

3 years ago Nadal basically had no slice. Slowly over time he's
become better at it and using it more. Now he seems addicted to it.

He has to drop the habbit before final.

Anything that helps Nadal make the court seem impenetrable is a good
thing for him. The slice has been a good addition. It is a really good
shot for him to have since it keeps him in even more points with less
energy expenditure.
