Exactly. 2011 was a breakout no one expected after Rafa's 2010. Novak was expected to do well this year and given Nadal on clay, Feds reemergence and Murray breaking through big Djokovic still won 2 of the 6 biggest titles of 2012, made a ton of finals and ended #1 beating Fed at the WTF. Results wise was it better of course not Novak is not stupid he knows that, but he was ready for the big time and the pressure this year. He had more to deal with on court and he still ended as #1.
