Re: Can Djokovic become the first in the Open Era to win 3 consecutive AO titles?

Well... It depends on the way he plays and how in-form Nadal and Federer will be. At this point, I don't think they are nearly fit enough to survive a 5 hour match against Djokovic on hard court and come out as the winner. Murray has a great chance if he keeps this up. He now won 2 big matches in a row against Djokovic. That's always helpful.

I think its pretty certain Nole will come back in AO way stronger, it remains to be seen if the rest will manage to keep up.

Re: Can Djokovic become the first in the Open Era to win 3 consecutive AO titles?

Don't see why it's a given that Nadal won't be fit enough to last with Novak on a HC for 5 hours. He did this year and this time he'll have been training solid for 2 months and be a lot less tired. Also, Djokovic had spent far less time than Murray on court in the tournament overall yet he was the one cramping and more tired by the end.

I think it'll be a tight contest - any of Djokovic, Nadal or Murray could win it - on the slow Aus Open surface the match up is very very close. Whichever of Murray/Nadal gets Federer is luckier. Strangely Novak even though ranked higher is guaranteed a tougher draw as he can't face the easiest of the top 4 on that surface (for him especially) until the final (barring some epic Murray run in the next few months which sees him join the top 2).

Novak could do it but it was a battle this year and if anything Murray's narrowed the gap further now and Nadal is mentally stronger (though obviously will be lacking matches so who knows what his AO will be like...).

Djokovic could win 3 slams next year actually...

If he gets upset at his bastion though, anything can happen...

Novak has it in the bag unless his confidence is shattered by a poor finish to 2012 or injuries.

Best movement on the AO surface, good conditions and I don't see anyone stopping him.

Mug prediction. He has already won 17.
