Absolutly not...he won't get past the 5.
Actually, we will see a huge decrease in his level this year. He is not ready for the responsibility of coming into a tournament as a player who must win, and not as one who just one of the top players.
He collapsed under such pressure in World Tour Finals, and the same thing will happen again.

Yeah. Del Potro can dominate as long as he avoids Baghdatis.

Djokovic totally did not come into last year's Wimbledon and US Open as a player who must win those tournaments to prove himself to the world.

That's right - he didnt. At wimbledon he was still ranked #2, and both those tournaments still were a part of his amazing run. He was still in a position where he can surprise everybody by making his year even more perfect. But this is not the case anymore - Now Novak is considered by many to be the one favorite to win any tournament, hence he has to fulfill very high expectations, which is something he never had to do before.

I give you Wimbledon, Nadal and Federer were probably still favoured there having just won Roland Garros / beaten Djokovic. And it was grass obviously, Nadal and Fed are Wimbledon legends, Djokovic never even made it to a final.

But at the US Open, Djokovic was a massive favourite, and he won it. And he wasn't even playing at his best.

Winning 3-4 slams per year, it will take him only 2 years to do it.

I don't think so, but I do think he's going to 'rule' the ATPtour the next couple of years. Federer can't motivate himself like he used to, Nadal's body is beginning to protest and Murray...well Murray is Murray.

So I sure think he's going to get close but Nadal will probably win a few extra too.

I do think he will win more than 5 GS titles. Around 7 is my bet. However, you do make a fair point there. I don't recall Novak defending any big title. I might be wrong, because I don't follow his career that closely. But I don't recall him defending his 08 AO and WTF titles for instance. Even at the Master Series level I am not sure if he defended any of his titles... I would ask Nole fans for that stat though.

This AO wil be crucial for him. It is not necessary for him to win it, but he will need at least to go deep into the tournament. Federer after his 2004 season didn't win his two first GS of the year, but at least made semi-finals and had a brilliant run at the US hard court season winning both titles at Miami and Indian Wells.

Since I am not neither a fan or a hater of Nole I consider myself neutral on those issues. I do like the guy's game though. Last year was amazing for him, but Nole had issues with consistency in the past. This year will put his resolve to the test. Sure he was the fav to win the USO, but it is a totally different ball game becoming the undisputed number one after a great season.

He is the new king of tennis. However, sooner or later his mother's infamous words will come to haunt his own son ... lets see for how long this king will be alive.

He has defended something twice...

Of course that's a good point, but in my opinion the attitude is different in the start of the season.
Although he held the #1 position at the USO, in addition to the responsibility there was also a feeling of 'bonus' to the greatness he had already achieved this year (and by greatness I don't only mean the Aussie Open and Wimby, but also his 5 months long winning streak and his impressive record at Masters 1000.
Starting from scratch in 2012 can affect him, and not in the positive way. It's a lot of pressure to know that even the slightest slip can cause a huge disappointment and raise questions about his ability to maintain the top spot.

Anyway, it's just my opinion. Time will tell
