Against someone who he'd never lose a rally to, he could just spin his serve in. No need to go for anything big on it - thus, fewer double faults.
Against people close to his level, he has to go for more on his first ball, thus leading to more errors.
...besides, he doesn't even double fault *that* much, especially not enough to give amateurs any sort of edge. In his first round at Wimbledon which he lost to Bogdanovic, he had 2 double faults per set. (3,2,2,1, specifically). At the Australian open this year, he had 3 double faults in 3 sets. In the Australian Open qualifying matches, he played 3 matches, each of which he won in straight sets and had 3, 1, and 3 doublefaults in those matches, respectively.
