Djokovic would have had a sterner challenge in the AO semis if you had picked a random top 50 player to play that match instead of Ferrer, odds are he'd have a big enough serve/strokes to get more games and that he could make it great and have a shot of winning if he played his best tennis ala Wawrinka...
Good thing rankings are based on points earned consistently rather than the probability of the player beating one of the top 4.
