Pure luck, hum? lol Apart from a few goofed up overheads, you're wrong about everything. He uses the net well, he's certainly not a ball basher a la Blake, he probably has the best backhand on the tour right now and he's an offensive baseliner (like most players these days) which is not the same as a grinder. Also shot placement has more to do with technique than luck. butthurt all the way today, aren't we? don't worry, you can always try summoning a hurricane next time he plays Fed although I remember a very windy Miami with a memorable Fed racquet destruction that went all Djoko's way in the end.
