Slot #2 : Miami - 2005
Slot #3 : none (Monte Carlo slot)
Slot #4 : Madrid (clay) - 2012
Slot #5 : Hamburg - 2002
Slot #6 : Toronto - 2004
Slot #7 : Cincinnati - 2005
Slot #8 : Madrid (hard) - 2006
Slot #9 : Paris - 2011

But if we considered "venues", he misses 4 since he played them in 1999 :
Monte Carlo / Rome / Stuttgart / Shanghai.

But then, shouldn't we considered the venues Djokovic missed too while he played them since 2005 ? :
Hamburg / Cincinnati / Madrid (hard)
i was about to say you had missed Rome which fed never won but then i saw that you were kind of right because Rome is now in the slot once held by Madrid and Hamburg which he did win and he's also win Madrid in the 4th slot.

So technically he has won in 8 slots.

This is all rather complicated Haha.
