No excuse needed. Djoko is good enough to get some wins vs Nadal on clay. Nadal is good enough to get more wins vs Djoko though. It is quite nice to finally have a rivalry at the top on clay where the outcome is not a foregone conclusion. Thanks to Nadal's formidable talent, there's been quite a shortage of that since 2005. Djoko is revitalizing the debate. Good for both of them.
