    If he'd have played Nadal in the semi-finals of AustralianOpen2013, he'd be on a plane home instead. And that would have happened if Nadal had played AustralianOpen2013, since Nadal has won their last 3 encounters and on Nadal's WORST surface lost a close 7-5 fifth set against Djokovic in the final of AustralianOpen2012, closing the mental gap. And Nadal would have played Djokovic, since Nadal would have been seeded #4 instead of Ferrer. :p

    Don't think Nadal would've won especially after such a long break but as sure as hell he ain't losing to Djokovic 2 2 and 1.

    I'm not sure why Ferrer got rolled so bad. Is djoko that much better ?

    And that right there is why 'Joker' is always gonna struggle with popularity among his fellow pros. Just a bit too needy, narcissistic and simply crass.

    Do you think a number of posters on this board suffer from clinical Obsessive Compulsive Disorder?
    I'm asking this question seriously.

    well, don't discard the possibility that we have only a limited number of patients suffering from multiple obssessive compulsive disorder... ;)

    In 2012, big John Isner was the 2nd most effective player in world history at holding serve. With his serve he would have won at least 6 games per set against Djokovic, and, with his mental strength and big man tennis, would have won tie-breaks as well.

    Janowicz would easily have cleaned up Nole today. With his impressive serve (I think his avg serve speed is 250kph) and his inside out forehand I have 100% confidence that JJ will be the next slam champion.

    No. The majority of sets that Djokovic has won in his 2-1 H2h with Isner were won in breaks. You're wrong.

    Federer does the same thing to Ferrer. To answer your question, No, it's because Ferrer and Djokovic play identical games but Djokovic is better in every department. Ferrer is basically playing a far better version of himself. If they had met on clay or grass, it would've been a much more difficult encounter. But on hardcourts, Ferrer has never had any answers.
    Nadal is a lefty and has a weapon. Ferrer doesn't have weapons.

    Doubt it seeing as Wawrinka would've knocked him out beforehand

    The great ones make it look easy. I'm predicting a Fed-Djok finals.
