it's partly true but you go too far imo in the idea that "you always get what you deserve".
Players can't have so much control, there's of course some luck involved (whoever the player I don't say that about Djokovic ; Fed, as I said before, and even Nadal -I remember some very important points where his ball hardly touched the line- have been lucky at times)
