he does have some weaknesses, that sometimes he hits the ball very short, can get pounced on by big hitters, his serve is not always reliable, and that if his movement is off very much in a match things can go badly for him because he relies on it so much.

I think he's achieved what is expected for his style and besides the AO 2012 he has won what he should. like many greats though, you can always say they 'could have' won more, which is shown in the cases of the finals he has lost at GS finals in Wimbledon and the Opens
Well said
