Was losing to Nadal at Roland Garros (in 4 sets), losing to Federer at Wimbledon (in 4 sets), and losing to Murray at US Open (6-2 in 5th) the peak of Djokovic's powers? If he doesn't win this Australian Open, I doubt he'll ever win a slam again. Murray has obviously turned the corner. Nadal is back in a couple of weeks, and Federer is still there.
