Djokovic only obstacle in Federer slam success?

Do you believe this is a true statement?. I won't say anything to persuade anyone but in my opinion on form of recent Federer is No.2 player in the world but going on the general consensus it's fair game.

Fed's always had the wood on Murray and Fed would cream Nadal on this day and age and we all know the distance of the Top 4 to 6 players are with everyone else.

Nadal hasn't retired yet, AFAIK.

Lost to Nadal, lost to Tsonga... and his form at the moment still unknown, since he retired in the last event.

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Re: Djokovic only obstacle in Federer slam success?

Of course Nole isn't the only obstacle!
But he's the most dangerous. I don't fear Nadal, his game sucks for what I saw.

ATM One of the biggest problems is his back, hope you get well, Rog!

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.

Re: Djokovic only obstacle in Federer slam success?

No, God mode Mugray is the only thing that's standing in front of Olderer's sweep of 4 slams and OG this year. The Scot made his statement in Brisbane by downing GOATS like Kukushkin and Muller thanks to his superior mental strength and never say die attitude on court. This year, I suspect, is Mugray's year. Olderer's only hope is USO, where the Scot will be tired after sweeping AO+RG+W and every masters title along the way
