Nah, if it's not obvious, I can't stand Nadull but I make most of these points in a joking manner. Most don't get it which just shows how strong the tardism is around here.
Undoubtedly, I prefer JMDP's game as well as Murray's and Novak's attacking modes way more than Nadal. However, it's also true tennis needs competition, especially on clay as that has become snooze season in the last 8 years except 2011.
I also think Fed can do some damage against RN in his present mental state. He's really a fighter in BO3 where he's more competitive on the physical side and has shown he's willing to attack against RN, even on a surface and conditions that suit RN's game down to a T - AO night session BO5.

He's thinking "Why is this guy above me acting so cocky. He should know who's the boss by now".
