Murray can certainly challenge him.
I agree.

But the notion that Andy can keep winning the first set and losing the match (three times in a row now against Nole) is one of those little facts that can eat away at a player's psyche a little. Fairly or not, it brings up the issue of mental toughness, at least against Djokovic.
