You say that like it's a big thing, when Djokovic has only beaten Nadal in 3 out of 17 matches off of hardcourts. Even on hardcourts, Nadal has registered some big wins over Djokovic.

Why are you so certain that Djokovic can beat Nadal in a major off clay? Based on 2011? Djokovic may have finished 2012 as a world number 1, and deservedly so, but I never got the feeling that he was back to his 2011 self towards the end of the year, just that he was the best player in a year where all the top guys did some good.
