But beating Nadal consistently in slams is something nobody can do (Djokovic couldn't get more than three before having the mental edge stripped from him at the hands of Rafael Nadal).
Those three weren't first rounds wins. They were slam finals. And to beat a guy, who at that point at won his last seven slam finals, was no small feat. As far as mental edge is concerned, we'll what happens the next time they play.
