Djokovic has lost some of his magic since 2011.
Do you know anything about prioritizing in pro sports?

Pro athletes in all sports set particular goals for the season, and, then, plan their peaks for certain periods.

It may come to you as a shock, but maybe Djokovic did not plan to peak for the entire clay court season. He did the damage in MC. Onto RG.

Is that so hard to understand?
