Without having to go too much into what Novak accomplished in 2011, especially when he was been written off prematurely as a one slam wonder etc. Did Nadal's own high consistency make Djokovic's run that much more special, than if Nadal wasn't there competing in those finals? Novak beat Rafael six times, on three surfaces, all finals, took four of his titles, including W and USO, without a single loss. Did beating the man, who was the undisputed world number one at the start of the year, who himself had his most consistent year in getting to finals elevate Novak's season even more than if he hadn't played him? Would Novak's season have looked as impressive if Nadal was injured, absent, or taken out early in those big wins? Sure, you can only play who is in front of you, and he had to go through the world number one. Thoughts?
