he won AO last year without a practice before, so it seems that he needs not sydney.

i mean djokovic is robot on the court.djokovic is showman,but he is not irradick on the court, like ivanisevic was.and he is full in tennis, like ivanisevic wasn't.djokovic is irradick out of court like goran.but that is not like "clymbing of Marat" or "rellies-session of Nalbandian".
Djokovic won AO without any preparation last year so it seems that he needs not Sydney.

He played very hard during Hopman Cup especially with Jelena hurting and Nole basically carried her for the whole tournament in mixed doubles.

Thanks for the official confirmation. I am no longer skeptical.

I agree. In the past many players would not play any tour tournament before the Australian.

Practice can be done on the practice court.

Sampras won Sydney 94 and then won AO too :) So that doesn't mean anything, he will do good on AO if he find his form. And couple good matches in Sydney can only help :)
