That's a mental block, he's fighting pretty hard but doesn't truly believe he can pull it off. It was the same situation with Kachanov and Thiem against Nadal this tourney.
how can you differentiate mental block from just not being good enough though?

not everyone can beat nadal and not everyone that loses to him is a choker

khachanov and thiem choked, it was pretty clear.

Delpo, I don't think the current version of himself is good enough to even beat a meh Djokovic, but he hasn't done himself any favors either with some of these misses.

you expect it from those mugs, but I thought delpo was made of stronger stuff. Then again, he's shown since the surgeries that he isn't really. Not much confidence in his game due to obvious reasons.
Over 5 sets, he clearly does not have the weapons to beat either Nadal or Djoker.

Seriously, who really believes that Delpo can stillbe a threat to the Big 3 in slams with the exception of a 37 year old Fed?
