Similar to Roger's 2008 year. Good but not great year. The Serbian has started declining this year like Federer in 2008 and Nadal in 2011.

He won the USO on his third attempt. Maybe he will win RG on his third attempt? He is definitely better on the USO HC than on the RG clay where he only has one final. He won Wimbledon on his first attempt like at the AO. I think he will lose another RG final before finally winning there. Reminds me of Agassi.

The only slam where Djokovic is the favorite is at the AO.
