I think Nepo is the worst Magnus can face (at least until Alireza is on the stakes). Anand was a little downhill, Kariakin isn't sharp enought, and Caruana, being to that day the greatest menace, due to his calculation skills, it's still too orthodox. Nepo on his highest level, doesn't unedrperform compared to Fab in that aspect of the game, but adds a components about "unpredictable moves", crazy tactical ideas, difficult to spot by no other than Ian.

My biggest concern about Nepo is his phisical strenght. It's not rare to see Nepo start failing at the end of the Tournaments. I've read something, in which I agree, that play half Candidates in 2020, and half in 2021, boosted him, as he started the 2nd leg fresh.

What I expect is Carlsen playing until King vs King, as he feels the more time Nepo is over the board, the better for him. He won't play risky first half of the match, and harvesting points on the second one. And the best that can happend to us is a victory of Nepo on the first 3-4 games.

Let's see.
I quote myself. We are starting to see the same old issue with Nepo. If you look back at his career, his tournaments tend to be "up to down" most of the time. The weight lost is fine, but it seems that the problem was not there, whats has happened today is clearly a matter of focus. Honestly, I don't consider the Russian to be inferior to Magnus in terms of talent, but as an sportsman, the Norwegian excells. In fact, if the Candidates had not been suspended, and the 14 rounds had been in 3 weeks, I suspect the challenger would be someone else.

Part of what I said about Ian approach to the match being wrong was also based on that downward trend in tournaments. Nepo needed an early +1 to be a threat . And considering all the challengers Carlsen has faced (Karjakin, Caruana and him), it seemed to me to be the player most likely to get it.

That's why, when I saw the approach at the start of the match off the russian player, I felf was not right.

what Nepo lacks is mental stamina.
Magnus is always focused till the bitter end & capable to turn a seemingly equal situation to his advantage.

I think Fabi was his greatest challenge until Alireza gets there.
