Err, what?

Re: Your expectations for Djokovic in 2013

With no Nadal to challenge him, he wins 3 slams at least.

Even with Nadal challenging him, he won 3 slams.

Re: Your expectations for Djokovic in 2013

Federer also can upset him, but only on rare occasions when he's in Goderer mode and not Olderer mode.

The bigger challenge in 2013 will be Murray.

Nadal's arms strong!

That's what you would think, but if you look at it, on many occasions peak Nole still needs Olderer to blow match/set points before he can win against him. Djokovic is not in control in that matchup, unlike when he faces Nadal.

As for Novak's 2013 season, he should win at least one slam but it could be two as well.

Yup, the only time a had a feeling Novak was in control against Fed was in Rome.

Re: Your expectations for Djokovic in 2013

Against Fed Djoko was indeed in control in that match at FO12,despite wind.You may say Fed was playing poorly but..
Further away my expertation for him in 2013 - 2 slams AO, USO, couple M1000, YearNo1.FO is still questoinable, while clay GOAT is there.
