Not true. The most lopsided wins Djokovic had over Nadal were on clay. Both in straight sets (and no tie-breakers needed). In 2011 he never beat Nadal in straight sets on hardcourt/grass. And look at the Australian Open final, 6 hours, 7-5 in the fifth set. Nadal is EXTREMELY close to winning the Australian Open.
