I doubt he could have won that match without the help of the hurricane sandy winds in the first two sets,but who knows.
The wind blows on BOTH sides of the court and has to be dealt with by BOTH players. Do you think other players have not had to play Slams (and win them) in similar conditions?

I presume you meant to say Djokovic?
