Djokovic ain't the player to go on court and impose his game the way Federer, Agassi, or Sampras used to. He just hangs on. As they say, elite offense beats elite defense.
This must be a joke! Djokovic outplayed in 2011 SF USO? Yes, especially in the third and fourth set when Federer didn't have BP.
RG SF 2011 was also very close.
AO 2012 I'm not going to comment at all.
