Re: Can Djokovic protect his Australian Open Title?
I don't think so.
First, he has never defended any titles thus far (if I remember correctly).
More importantly, his current form has not been positive or impressive.
To sidetrack, even though Murray seems to be the front-runner now, I have this funny feeling he won't win AO this year.
Both Federer and Nadal haven't been red-hot as well.
Could possibly have a dark horse win again this year. Speaking of which, is AO the Slam with the most number of surprising/unexpected winners/finalist in recent years? (eg Korda/Johansson/Schuttler/Clement/?)
