... then you may as well add to that in three of the last four matches they played Federer smashed Nadal too - both very one sided matches and one being the worst beat-down of Nadal's career. If Djokovic is busting Nadal's gladatorial belief and a supposedly ageing Federer is still handing out the odd beatdown then it must be a jab in the knee for him when he gets out of bed in the morning.

Or, these things rarely, if ever, cross his mind and he's just focussing on the long-game in his recovery as opposed to the stop-gaps he seems to have done before.
