Djokovic's grandfather died in April last year. It's likely that Novak was still grieving during the 2012 Wimbledon.

A not-quite-as-far-past-his-prime Federer beat Djokovic at the French in 2011.
Djokovic received walkover into the semifinal (Fognini), which means he did not play 5 days after his match in the 4th round. It's sensible to say that Novak lost rhythm by the time he played against Federer.
