    If we exclude the results (given Federer is an accomplished Slam champion shooting for a Grandslam and Djokovic is just on the upswing) how does their game compare against each other.

    Does Djokovic have the game to trouble Federer?

    He has a very dangerous offensive game and he can move very well, too. He has shown that in the semis against Nadal. Unfortunately Nadal was just too good that day, yes even better than today against Fed. If Djokovic were to meet Federer in the final with that form, he might have a chance.

    Here are someone's scouting reports for each.

    Djokovic has the game to trouble Federer, but so do a number of players. Gasquet, Berdych, Youzhny, Blake etc. Players have the game to trouble him, but that does not mean they are going to beat him with any regularity. Djokovic has a solid backhand drive, but every other part of his game is weaker than Federer's, so while he may be able to trouble him, he is going to have to improve a lot before he becomes a real contender.
