Not really. He can beat Federer, but Nole is just a class above. Understandable his confidence is lower against him
Not really. Sure the match-up is far worse for him here but he generally hits the ball much worse from the start. Against Federer he is returning extremely well, murdering the 2nd serve and generally painting lines with missiles, against No2e he never is as aggressive.
Waiting on tennis to stop from being dead.
