At the present time, Nadal is on a 3-match winning streak against Djokovic, having convincingly strengthened his position as the king of clay, back to his old dominant self.
You keep repeating this same thing over and over, but Nadal has not yet defeated Djokovic off clay since all of those 2011 beatings. His defeats against Djokovic on clay tell us nothing about his future matches off clay. It remains to be seen if the current Nadal can defeat Djokovic in a slam off clay.
