Ok, RG is a while away but I've been thinking about this. Basically would Djokovic's chances of completing his career slam be better had he actually lost the AO this year? Think about it, now he has to do something that has not been done since 1969 and aside from the odds being against winning 4 slams in a row, the pressure will also be on him. But if he had lost in the AO he only would have to face odds of winning 1 slam in a row and with much less pressure on him - only a career slam on the line and not a Novak slam. I feel it lowers his odds of winning.
