I disagree strongly. A LOT of things can change very quickly. Djokovic has struggled in Slams against lower ranked players like Tsonga, Seppi, Wawrinka, etc. He's been taken out by Federer and Murray. If he draws guys like Tsonga and Federer back to back in a Slam, there's no guarantee he'll make it past the both of them. If he draws guys like Del Potro and Wawrinka at RG, again...no guarantees. And then there's the Nadal factor and Murray who is also getting dangerously close to all of the top guys in Slams. Murray isn't yet physically tough enough to go through 2 of the top guys in consecutive matches but he'll build up to it. For all we know, Murray could dump Djokovic out if they meet in the semifinals of Wimbledon or the USO.
