Djokovic at the AO

Djokovic vs Federer 2-1
Djokovic vs Nadal 1-0
Djokovic vs Murray 2-0

Total 5-1

Murray at the AO

Murray vs Federer 0-1
Murray vs Nadal 1-1
Murray vs Djokovic 0-2

Total 1-4

Not saying Murray doesn't have a chance, but Djokovic is a big favourite if he plays like he did at the WTF. And Djokovic not playing Federer in an AO final means nothing because it isn't his fault he had to meet him in the semis all the time - you are aware that nearly every single HC slam Djokovic and federer have been in the same half unless seeding made it impossible?
I agree, and I see your point.
