That is very interesting, to say the least..
It is very interesting for someone, who doesn't know what else to say.

Oh, I see that you have no intention whatsoever to stand behind your claims. Your argument, as it is, is, that Djokovic may never repeat anythig like that, but all the talk about his improvement would still apply. Laughable, but not unexpected.

What is silly is, thatyou think, that a pattern can appear just like that and disappear just like that.

You believe in Fairies and Capricorns, son?

A single odd event can pass for coincidence. A pattern, like the one in 2011 cannot. It has to have foundations. Djokovic didn't straightset Nadal at RG twice, so I cannot relate your example to anythig real. My suggestions are based on what happened. Wrap your head around that (if you can).

That is a fact.

Oh, I didn't know, that he displayed that form before 2011. Sorry, you must live in another reality.

They did?

So, I will take your word, that you expected season like 2011.

Oh, wait, you didn't.
