Why didn't Nadal avoid Soderling at RG after losing in 2009 to him? He beat him 2 times there after, the very next year in the final and in 2011 QF.
Blake,Berdych circa 2006, Soderling at one point, Djokovic 2011 and beyond, all had the mental drop on Nadal yet Nadal never shied away from taking the battle to them, if his health allowed him to.
For example, do you think Nadal avoids Davydenko, who has a positive h2h with him?
I have to agree with this, Nadal has suffered very heavy losses against Djokovic, and especially in AO 2012, but he managed to win it three times in a row after all that.
