It's interesting to note how little he has changed strategically over
the years. Little 12 year old Rafa used to camp several feet behind
the baseline, made high-pitched grunts and played moonball tennis
until the other player made errors or until he saw an opening. He has
just upgraded that style with more muscle, more topspin and more
running.

Yes, that was an over-simplistic take on things. Tongue in cheek, of
course. :)

You don't give Nadal enough credit. His basic/default game may be
essentially the same, but he has expanded his arsenal substantially.

If he hasn't changed then it makes Fed look pretty bad losing to a 12 yr
old.
