#10 Returning 2nd Serves

 2013 Roland Garros Final: Rafael Nadal def. David Ferrer 6-2, 6-3, 6-2 

Nadal is a beast at owning your second serve.

Rafa won several of the smaller battles around the court but none more important than turning Ferrer’s second serve into his own third serve. Ferrer made 62% of his first serves winning only 58% of them (Nadal won 70% of first serves). The problem began when Ferrer missed his first serve and began the point with his second.

Ferrer hit 32 second serves for the match and only managed to win 8 (25%).
