Nadal has lost eight of his past ten matches with Djokovic including all five in 2011 and was soundly outplayed by his rival in the Wimbledon final.  

“It's an advantage for him. He’s obviously the favourite for the final,” acknowledged Nadal. “I know I have to do something better than the other matches to try to change the situation, and that’s what I’m going to try.

“I have to play my game. I’ve beaten him in the past playing my game. The thing is playing my game very well. I need to be strong mentally all the time, fight every ball, believe in the victory in every moment. That’s something that for moments this year I didn’t do.”

Nadal admitted that it is so hard these days to work out where to attack Djokovic as there are so few holes in his game. 

“I think he's a very complete player.  You have Novak in front and you say, ‘How I can beat him ?’” he said. “The backhand is fantastic; the forehand is fantastic; the serve he's doing really well; the movements are probably the best in the world today.  The only way to beat him is believe in the victory, play aggressive, and play every moment perfect.  So that's what I have to try.  My approach to the match is always the same, try my best in every moment and try to play my game very well.”
