Djoko performance while Nadal is inactive

Is it just me or does it seem like when Nadal is out to injury Djoko on more than one occasion has performed suspiciously bad? Anyone care to check his winning percentage while Nadal has been away over the last couple of big injuries?

He actually did pretty well in 2012/2013

Canada 2012 - WIN
Cincinnati 2012 - FINAL (lost to Fed in GOATmode)
US Open - FINAL (would've won if it wasn't for the wind)
Shanghai - WON
WTF - WON

2013 AO - WON
2013 Dubai - WON

I think his poor peformance has more to do with the fact that he just won Wimbledon so all pressure is off + the fact that he just got married and is expecting his first child any day now.

eh he's got two weeks. People are overvaluing Cincy performance for USO because of Nadal last year.

In 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008 the Cincy champion did NOT win the USO

It would of still been better if he had at least gone deep in one of them and got a little bit more HC match play before the USO. It wasn't even really a problem of the players were too much for him on the days (full credit to Tsonga and Robredo though) but his own problems on the court... we'll see though. I still expect him to make at least the semis at the USO...
