What does he need to get more confidence? He should be a natural by now. Djokovic, in contrast, looks like a man who believes in his abilities on grass courts, even though he's won once and made the final only once..
It's not about confidence, Wimbledon just plays much faster in earlier rounds, Nadal just has to get by the first rounds and by say QF he'll be rolling.
