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

Emerson did it pre-Open era from 1963-1967 and also Crawford 1931-1933 lol.

9 times now a man has won 2 in row, but failed to win 3 in a row...

1.) Ken Rosewall 1971-1972, failed in 1973.
2.) Guillermo Vilas 1978-1979, failed in 1980.
3.) Johan Kriek 1981-1982, failed in 1983.
4.) Mats Wilander, 1983-1984, failed in 1985.
5.) Stefan Edberg 1985, 1987, failed in 1988 (AO not held in 1986)
6.) Ivan Lendl 1989-1990, failed in 1991 (even made the final, 1 match short, 20 consecutive matches won).
7.) Jim Courier 1992-1993, failed in 1994.
8.) Andre Agassi 2000-2001, failed in 2002 but did not play it in 2002 at all but won again in 2003 (last grand slam for him).
9.) Roger Federer 2006-2007, failed in 2008 (lost in the SF to Djokovic, Djokovic's first grand slam).

Now we have Djokovic, he won in 2011 over Murray and 2012 over Rafa, but will he win 3 in a row in 2013?

On Murray

How would you rank the top 4 by chances of winning the 2013 from best to worst? I'd have Rafa at the bottom for sure, but among the other 3 I'm not really sure how to rank them.

Now all that's left is Roger beating nadal in a slam again. Maybe 2013 AO with nadal coming back after 6 months off.

Only if Djikovic 2.0 turns up, that is not going to happen. I expect Muzza to win his first OZ open next year.

Nole is done. I don't give a shit about him. He can go win futures for all I care. He won't be winning too many slams though. Go cry to mama about the wind.

it's possible

he can equal agassi and federer by winning 4 australian opens

if he wins three in a row, first time ever

its his best surface, federer isn't stopping him, nadal isn't stopping him, murray is the only hope
