It was him who couldn't win the really big matches. Even last year, with the way he was playing and the way Nadal was playing on clay, and while Djokovic won the clay matches on straights, they were close matches with not more than one break a set, I believe.
Again,I'm not sure I agree. Djesus was unable to hang with Nadal physically until last year,and that is what cost him matches against Nadal. There is a match-up issue as well as ****'s abilities being better than Nadal's are as well.
