.I think Novak knows exactly how that match was won and lost,he knows it wasn't a case of too good
I agree. Actually something one of the commentators said made me wonder... He said: "Imagine if Djokovic wins this match without a serve, that would be impressive". And it's true, he was close to win it and he was playing with his second serve most of the time. So that tells me that when he gets his serve back he will be able to beat Federer consistently. At least this Federer. Roger played brilliantly during the first set, but Novak was missing easy shots, it wasn't him on the court, even Roger acknowledged that. I think these two players are struggling right now with their games, playing at intervals their best games and at other intervals making a lot of UEs.
