    No, he won some slams while Nadal took a year off. Djokovic should enjoy, maybe start an alpine ski academy with his earnings. He could hang the plant in the lobby at the alpine lodge.

    If I was Santa, I would give the following players ONLY the things necessary to help improve their tennis.

    Del Potro - an unbreakable wrist
    Murray - a Federer forehand
    Federer - a Murray backhand
    Nadal - a good pair of knees
    Djokovic - (doesn't really need anything as he's #1)
    Nalbandian - Nadal's willpower
    Davydenko - a serve

    Sharapova, and others (u know who they are) - a silencer
    Nadal - New shorts so he stops picking them from his bum
    Fed - a couple more slams (just cause)
    Roddick/Hewitt - "happy to see you retire" cards
    Henri Leconte - more commentary jobs
    Wozniaki - a slam to justify her ranking

    Off the top of my head:

    Nadal to win a match against Djokovic.
    Federer to win another Slam.
    Djokovic to win the FO and complete his career Grand Slam.
    Murray to win his first Slam (preferably Wimbledon but any will do).
    Del Potro, Soderling, Davydenko and Roddick to recover form and get back into the top 10 where they belong!

    To Federer: what to get a man who's got it all?

    Antibiotics.

    To Nadal: his mental strength back. Once I give him this he will be unstoppable.

    To Djokovic: this crazy 'egg' thing I designed that gives you twice as many red blood cells as non-doping tennis players. I think he'll love it.

    To Murray: groundstrokes, a serve and volleys

    How did Santa do last year then, let's review ;)

    1. Santa doesn't like Djoko it seems

    2. Oh Santa just loves Roger doesn't he ?

    3. Now Santa almost gave Nadal retirement didn't he?

    4. Murray got some extra love from Santa. USO + Olympic gold

    Santa's list for 2013 coming soon...

    Monfils - A Brain
    Gasquet - Heart
    Nadal and Monfils - Better Orthopeditc MDs (at least a appointment with some Sports Docs in the Staes, you have American Football players getting their joints torn up but back in 3 to 4 months playing again - just check out Suggs for Baltimore as an example!)
    Murray - a trip to a dentist NOT in he UK and a new tennis kit that fits......the stuff he is wearing looks silly on him - the all black Darth Vader look is too Ivan Lendl retro for me.....

    I'd give Federer a Big Bubba

    Nadal - some tinsel for his crutches

    I'd give Federer a bigger racket and a decent aggressive return so he'd have a hope of winning a slam when Nadal wasn't injured.
