So if Djokovic had won that match would that have been dismissed as 'wind aided'? You have to play in whatever conditions you find. You think Djokovic, Federer and Nadal won all their Slams in 'ideal' weather conditions?

His 2nd serve sucks too - Fed would have won the SF if he'd exploited it more; Djokovic would have won more easily in the F.
Well, he beefed up his game nicely to beat Fed in the semis and he wasn't that far off against Djokovic in today's final. He dominated the first 2 sets of that match. His level fell off after the 2nd set, no doubt about that. Not sure why but there may have been a finess issue with his foot.

He is a lot closer than you are willing to give him credit for?
