Stan and Novak have the easiest draws on paper. That means nothing against inform opponents though, as we've seen during RG.

It´s an easy draw, but draws have nothing to do with Novak... He always makes it to the later stage..
What matters is the Final opponent won´t be easy either way.

If Cilic was in Federer's quarter, Murray would actually have a problem to make the finals.

And who do you think would be harder opponent for Djokovic or anyone else from 17-20 seeds, Isner or Monfils(injured), Robredo, Agut ?

Or from 13-16, Anderson or Tsonga(probably not 100% ready, last year R16 63/63/76 Djokovic), Lopez, Gofin.

So, Djokovic with Isner and Anderson got the hardest possible opponents.

Or maybe, Djokovic was again supposed to get Berdych, Murray, Tsonga, Cilic, Dimitrov like the last year + 1R Kohly instead of last year' 2R Stepanek whereas both Fedal again till SF guys who never made it past 3R in Wimbledon.

Yep, he was supposed, no, but regretfully, unlike Nike&KiAO, Brits thought Murray (and Adidas) should be given a fair chance this year too.

The same as with the last AO and USO.

Fedaltards probably expected that Aussies would've put Djokovic, Stanimal, Nishi, Murray together again as Yankees the last USO, and were dissapointed that they actually gave a fair chance to OBE by landing him in Fedal's half.

So Djokovic with the one of the two best current HC players Stan(as always at AO/USO since 2012) or Nishi certainly in his SF and in form Raonic, G.Muller, Verdasco in his quarter, 4R and 3R respectively, had a cakewalk AO'15 draw according to quite a few Fedaltards here.

Well, before the draw i thought Murray was a favourite, but now it's definitely Djokovic.
The best possible draw for him

True, but Cilic is an easy match-up for Djokovic, as is Kohlschreiber, even though Kohli is on paper a tough R1 opponent for most people. Cilic isn't even the seeded QF opponent but Nishikori isn't even going to make it to the QF, so this is a great draw for Novak. To be fair, Berdych/Ferrer/Raonic, the other possible QF draws, would have been just as easy for him.

Tomic isn't actually that easy for Novak on grass and only Kyrgios would have been tougher in R3, but yeah, it is a cake-walk for the most part.

Tsonga is by far the toughest R4 draw, but Anderson (in Novak's section) is the second toughest, others Lopez and Goffin. But Tsonga may not be fully fit.

Wawa is a better draw for Novak in SF than Murray would have been, since we are talking about grass. Raonic/Kyrgios/Dimitrov are other possible semi-finalists, but only Kyrgios is in anything like decent form and he is the 26th seed so you can't complain about that in a semi.

Of the unseeded guys, Janowicz, Kokkinakis, Muller, Dolgopolov, are probably the ones Novak would have disliked more in R1/R2.

Overall, I would say it is an average draw - there just aren't that many players who can trouble Djokovic, so it is mostly the fact that Fed, Murray and Nadal are all packed in the other half with their own problems to deal with to even make it out of that half that gives him the edge.

If I could have devised a tough draw for him (based on actual seedings), I would have gone for:
Muller
Dolgopolov
Kyrgios
Tsonga
Nadal
Murray
Other half (e.g. Federer, but not really a draw as such)

He had a similar draw at Wimby 2013 and still couldn't win. Besides, Djokovic is more scared of Wawrinka than Fedal these days. He won't win.

Yup. Cakewalkovic strikes again. No words.
THIS FROM YOU. You have a short memory. During the FO. It was YOU was it not that stated. The tournament doesn't start until THE QTR FINALS.

Djokovic can beat 6 guys. The question will be CAN HE BEAT THE 7th????? Which is the one that matters.
