Djokovic's 2011 grass level would not have been enough to take the tournament in many many other years. he just had the great fortune of not facing anyone playing insane grass court tennis as well as had the fantastic confidence
as you mention, there's a difference between playing well and with confidence and having a great type of game to go alongside a surface
