It was almost certain that he would not have as big a 2012 as he did last year. AO was close and it looks like his mojo has been whittled down. Even before the final, his opponents have given him a hard time and he's had to come from behind to win a couple of matches. His aura of invicibility is not as tangible in close setters. Last year, you could sense that he was going to do something out of this world to win a big point.
I agree, no one can expect to be like Federer and Pete. GO RAFA!
Well, I think there's not "out of this world" with the Djokovic game. It's pretty standard Western forehand, two handed backhand and percentage serve. His flexibility, foot speed, efficiency, willpower and smarts make it "Djokovic", not just the common Western hitter.
