Fed was nowhere near his 2011 best at RG this year and could still have won at least 2/3 sets. It's a bit like the AO 2012. If Fed played Djok, he'd have shown him the door. Djok got lucky Nadull took out Rog.

Still, Roger is not getting any younger and he just seems to play so much better at Wimbledon nowadays.

If some unknown talent came out of some random tiny country (no chance to win DC) and won 20 slams, no one would give a single shit if that player didn't have DC. The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.
