Nope. When beaten too often he immediately makes excuses.

Even Federer, when beaten last year by Djokovic, complained that Djokovic made lucky shots more appropriate for a kid than a professional. It couldn't have been skill or mental toughness.

And Djoker has had plenty of excuses for not playing well recently (eg blue clay).
