It's always been a close rivalry, but at that time in the rivalry, Federer had never lost to Djokovic, and was absolutely capable of having won that match. That's just the way it is, no excuses.
Not true, it was 3-2 in Djokovic's favor.In this I might say even rivalry, Federer had winning record in four seasons(2006,2007,2008 & 2010), and Djokovic in three seasons(2009,2011 and 2012).After four consecutive Fed wins , Djokovic is leading 13-12.
