In this way of thinking, Noble can count himself fortunate for winning AO. should've lost to Murray, but he gave it away and Noble eeked it out.. in fact Noble was far closer to losing this than Murray was to losing USO Final. Should've lost to Nadal too, but he ran out of steam.

Noble = Nole. Can't be asked with fixing the auto correct.
We both know that the AO semis and final were played in normal conditions, the USO's weren't. Tennis matches are usually not played in extremely windy conditions, it was a special case. Federer can handle the wind, Djokovic and Murray can't (this is the case because Federer is a much more complete/versatile player who can adapt to all sorts of conditions, making Murray and Djokovic look like robotic grinders in comparison). The first two sets of the final were basically a lottery, the tennis was simply horrendous as none of the two adapted to the conditions.
