It's a fine line, but he's simply a half-step below those guys, so for him to impose his will on a match he has to be perfect while a Djokovic has so much confidence to carry over that he can find a way to win even when he's less than perfect.
Eh. People said the same thing when Tsonga came back from 2 sets down to beat him.... and Fed. just manhandled him this time out in 3 straight sets.

I don't think that Roger has to be perfect at all... he just can't be horrible.

Again... 60 unforced errors... that's HORRIBLE.

If Novak would have had a ton of aces and winners I'd agree... but he didn't.... and he was one lucky-ass shot from losing the match.

I think Fed's problems are mental right now TBH... that and I think that Novak FINALLY realizes that he can beat Fed now... and that's huge.
