So now you're arguing that Djokovic of today is better than the Djokovic that went on a tear, not losing a match for half a season in 2011. It's just one breathtakingly bad argument after another. Of course Djokovic isn't the same player he was two years ago. He's not as consistent at reaching and maintaining his highest level. Again, at this moment, the top 3 are pretty evenly matched. Making references to 2 or 20 years ago is pointless.
