With ifs ... (and for instance Fed has not been as ruthless in tiebreaks as he was usually : won only 59% of them when he was rather at a huge 70% previous years ... and THAT was again the fact in that WTF final)

This year Djokovic lost crucial sets 7-5 to Murray and Nadal ... but he also won some (notably in Melbourne)

He lost two ones to Tsonga in Roland-Garros but still won the match.
That's exactly what I meant, he wins some he loses some so I don't think his mental toughness is not what people made it out to be.
