How do you figure that out? Nadal's won Wimbledon twice and battered Murray three years on the trot, losing just one set against him. He's got way more of a chance than Murray has of beating Novak. Murray's only win against Novak was on a hard court last year in a best of three.
Rafa came close to winning in Australia and has won his last three against Novak (albeit on clay). Mentally he's getting there when it comes to facing Djokovic.
No, Nadal is getting close mentally. You cant say that just because of a match. Federer played a 5 set match vs Nadal in the australian 2009 and lost, then the next meetings between them in slams Fed lost. It was just a match. Yes i know that Nadal has won the last three meeting but that was on clay, where he is a beast.
Murray head to head with Nadal does not matter in this case.
Djoko has the mental edge over Nadal which is the reason why I think Murray has a bigger chances in beating Djoko than Nadal has on the other surfaces apart from clay. Last year Nadal was completely outclassed by Djoko in the wimbledon.
