H2H is 2:0 federer
Their last meeting was pretty tight though. Steve took neo feder to two tiebreaker sets at Indian Wells 2017.
What do you expect from this match??

Steve has switched to Ezone line. I would need to see some close-ups after the match to determine if he has actually changed frames though.
 
Agreed. Djokovic is one of those "very, very few players" who can beat Fed if he plays like this. The problem is, Djokovic doesn't allow Roger to play at this level. Last time was 2015 Cincy.
You would need Federer playing close to this level and Djokovic dropping his a little.....Federer frustratingly has lost matches even when Djokovic's not been at his best.....USO 2015 for example....Frustrating match that I got to watch at Arthur Ashe...

McEnroe saying that the ATP Cup robbed Djoker of a lot of emotional and physical energy coming into the AO: "that's the wrinkle in this tournament."

Did Djokovic say this to him? Otherwise I have no idea why he thinks this. Djokovic was visibly into that tournament, physically and emotionally, but it’s over a week ago and why shouldn’t he be ready for a Slam now?

I merely quoted McEnroe, I didn't make the statement and can't answer to his motivation for saying it. He said the same thing about Nadal. He thought it was foolish for guys 32 and 33 years old to play DC and then ATP Cup.
