Yes the drugs which mean you can time your forehand and not hit them into the crowd.

No way! He is muscling the ball as hard as ever. Look at the size of him! His legs have gone even bigger.
I reckon the rest have caught up.

Look at his 2010 USO first round v Gabashvili...76 76 63..yet he won the USO that year. That's what you don't want to admit Kim...you only remember the wins...not the way he got there.

The difference today is that quite a few players know now how to handle spin and are fitter. So those close matches he had then...can easily turn into losses today and that is affecting his confidence....plus the fact they are a bit stricter on the 25s rule.

This is not an accurate observation. He does not look massive.

I was just thinking of that match now, I remember staying up until 3am watching that. He's playing a lot better then, compared to now. Against Gabashvili in that match he didn't lose his serve, he was solid, just couldn't eat into return games for the first couple of sets. 
In this match he's playing hilariously bad shots every 2 minutes.

To me he does, huge arms, and bigger upper legs.

Would be interesting to see him in that old pirate outfit.

He doesn't hit as hard, his shots are shorter and lack power and he tires quicker.
The 25 second rule was in place in 2013 when he cleaned up. But imo, he still doesn't get pinged enough so that isn't a strong enough reason for his level drop.
Imo, he's clean, or at least cleaner.

The pirate outfit hid his legs.. anyway: those legs are not huge, not at all

For me, Nadal is just playing closer to the baseline and not having enough time to load his shots with spin.
He does it occasionally but not at will.

And that is enough to make a difference.

Why is he playing closer to the baseline?
25 sec rule.

No other reason to get out of his comfort zone.

I saw it with my own eyes in RG.
Against Nole he lasted a set in his 4m behind the baseline mode.
Mind you, those were some monster dead balls.

But Shwartz is playing much better than gabsh in 2010....and conditions seem faster today.

No, Gabashvili played very well that day, considerably better than Shwartz today.

Swatrz could/should have won that match in 3.....that is I guess the difference between Nadal now and Nadal then.

Nadal is on the decline and has been a while.  A victim of age, like all the other multiple champs that approach 30 and find it very hard to win slams like they once could.  This Nadal is there for the taking in every match he plays.  I've never seen him play as badly as this year.  I'm loving it, of course - but pretending this isn't decline is silly.

Nadal trying to do a chest bump a la Nole at the net to Shwartz but this one reluctant to mix sweat with Nadal!

That was pathetic from Schwartzman.

Somehow Nadal again wins a lost match. So nothing's changed much, really?

very unlucky from Dimi to be down a break in the 5th. He is playing well but can't quite convert it into wins.

Yes, but his BH is weak.
I admire he's chosen to play with it, but it's just not good enough for current era.

Kuku is swinging freely knowing he has nothing to lose whereas Dimi has too much pressure on himself.

I am not sure. I think it is quite good. He is just not a good match player.

The tour has really consolidated in the last two years.

It really can only be explained as you said with no changes in technology.

So what now?
