Well, ok, it might not be 6-1 6-2. It might be something like 6-3 6-4 as well. My point is that Djokovic is the BIG favorite. I just don't trust Nadal in this matchup anymore.
That is pretty much common sense. All of these posters who feel that Nadal will drub Novak have no understanding of tennis matchups or the mental aspect of the game.
Novak plays more aggressively against Nadal than he does against anyone else. Nadal plays more defensively against Novak than he does against anyone else.
In short: Novak vs Nadal - Rafa plays his worst and Djoko plays his best due to the nature of the matchup. The only time Nadal has beaten a post 2011 Novak is when the Spaniard is at his absolute best.
This is also reflected in their recent lopsided h2h for past several years.
Anything other than a routine straight sets for Djoko over Nadal would be a big surprise IMO given Nadal's decline since the past couple of years. It is also very clear now that Novak is the heavy favorite at RG 2019. Guys like Medvedev/Wawrinka will probably have a better chance to beat Djokovic than Nadal ever will. It's all about matchups.
