    I'm just saying God-mode Federer is greater than God-mode Nadal at the Australian Open. It's just that Federer doesn't bring it as often anymore. If he can against Djokovic at next year's AO, God help Djokovic.

    When anyone, let alone Federer, is on fire, God help Djokovic indeed.

    But that's irrelevant. You can't count on anyone being on fire. You watch their last encounters and see that only on grass the result is still somewhat uncertain. As much as I prefer Federer to win if I was betting money I would bet on Djokovic.

    Djokovic is certainly the favorite. Like maybe 90% he wins. I was just saying Djokovic isn't "unbeatable" like people are claiming.

    If Fed is in the zone he can win in a dominant fashion. I was re-watching Fed begaling Djokovic in Cincy and it was a level of tennis that I haven't seen since 2006 (or WTF 2011). Yes, Cincy is a faster surface but you never know exactly what will happen when these two play. Fed is one of the few guys that can hit a lot of winners past Djokovic's awesome defense. Fed also servered amazingly well in Cincy.

    I don't know, I kind of have a feeling Murray will win it.

    Doubt it. He is the third favorite. The winners of the last 5 hardcourt slams are Djokovic, Murray and sci-fi Nadal(absent from the AO).

    His last HC slam win was very fortunate with Tsonga and pre slam Murray. Unlike Wimbledon where Federer was able to win even while facing Murray and Djokovic, at the AO it will be another story. If Federer avoids ballbashers he can win Wimbledon while at the HC slams now he has to avoid Djokovic and pretty soon slam winner Murray.
