Will just say that history has shown that winning lead up events is not necessary for winning slams, even for a momentum guy like Nadal.
On the other hand I still think Djokovic's losses were more unwanted blunders on his part (for lack of a better phrase, credit to the opponent of course) than laying off full throttle and being prepared to deal with the consequences, or however you want to describe it. In other words he would not really be satisfied with how things went / it was not his ideal preparation but the world is not perfect anyway and he still has good reason to be confident for RG.
