Exactly. Of course Federer always has a chance against Djokovic at Wimbledon, until he is no longer a top 5 caliber player, in fact atleast 7 or 8 guys have a decent shot vs Djokovic on grass, which is why his win at Wimbledon 2011 was so remarkable, and why winning the Grand Slam which would have to include both his first RG and a Wimbledon title would be so amazing if he achieved. However most outside of overzealous Fed fanboys agree a repeat of the 2011 RG upset is highly unlikely to ever happen again. Federer deserved his win there and IMO it wasnt even that big an upset at the time (Djokovic had won only 2 majors, he wasnt really confirmed as the new dominant player until he won Wimbleodn). Federer is now going onwards into his 30s (he wasnt even 30 yet at the time of that match) and clay is not a surface that rewards age, and Djokovic is only growing in confidence on clay all the time. Furthermore Djokovic is 6-1 vs Federer on slow surfaces dating way back to starting in 2009 (when Federer was only 27 and Djokovic nowhere near his prime form), which indicates the 2011 RG result was a lightning in bottle kind of thing at this stage of Federer's career.
