Some points are new this time such as Novak's serve and all the pressure on Nadal. Meaning Nadal comes in as the favorite to this match and is expected to win. These are FACTS.It's sports, anything can happen. If anyone can beat Nadal here, it's Novak.
I just don't get how the same people who said the same things last year could have watched that final, learned absolutely nothing and gone back to pushing the same talking points just 8 months later. Just sit back and quitely enjoy the match, maybe something crazy actually will happen this time. But pressure, ambition, fitness, form and conditions were the exact same reasoning why Novak supposedly was going to be a nightmare matchup for Rafa last time around and it couldn't have been more wrong.
Why? First, Serving of Novak has improved Statistically.
Second, "Favorites" are determined by bookies voting and Odds. RG 2020 - Novak was the favorite. Nadal the underdog. Now it's reverse. RG 2021 Novak the underdog and Nadal the favorite.
Hence all the pressure on Nadal.
