Again we have to figure out, being currently no.3 in slam count, in which match Djokovic present his highest level ever? I will check my memory and Youtube to see if you are right.

Without taking the form of the opponent into account, I'd say Wimby'15 F in Bo5 and Doha'16 F in Bo3. Taking level of opponent into account, many matches in 2011, RG'13 SF.

The match you are looking for is the 2011 US Open Final.

A lot of 2015.

Stan vs Novak AO 2013. We really going to forget about this one?

Yeah, great match. I wanted to post the same.

Besides US2011 final, there were a lot of matches so it's hard to choose them without forgetting some memorable ones: some clay matches vs Nadal (i.e. Rome 2011), obviously some AO matches as well (i.e. AO2011 semi, AO2013 R4, AO2016 semi), indoor matches (i.e. Shanghai 2015 semi, a few WTF matches like WTF2012 final), Wimby matches (Wimby2015 final was very good) etc. I mostly chose those matches, when he played an in-form opponent.

It is somewhere between 2016 AO semi, 2011 USO F and 2015 WB final.

Australian Open semi final first 2 sets. Federer was playing well... and was 6-1 6-2 down
After 5 games federer had already 13 unforced errors. Don’t tell me he was playing well.
Novak on the other hand was painting all lines with his passing shots and simply didn’t miss anything. Federer showed then what he is capable of in the third set but couldn’t keep up the level. He was too far behind already

2016 Australian Open SF (vs. Federer)
2013 Australian Open SF (vs. Ferrer)
2015 Roland Garros QF (vs. Nadal)

Yep, Doha 2016 comes to mind. Maybe some of his top Beijing matches as well, pretty dominant there.
First two sets vs Fed 2016 AO was machinelike and at times godlike
USO 2011 final was special

This year's AO final is also up there, Nadal wasn't at his best, wasn't running down balls he normally would have, but Djokovic played nearly flawless tennis

Too difficult to pick. Djoker played many great matches against RAFA and against Nose. He seems to always lift his level against them.
As a RAFA fan, USO 2011 stuck into my memory the most. Sure, Djoker had other emphatic wins against him, like Doha 2016 or this year's AO. But I think RAFA was rather weak in those matches. He wasn't in the USO 2011 final, physically he was still a beast in 2011, he just didn't serve as well as the previous year and his BH wasn't as penetrating. But Djokovic played out of this world. It took a monumental effort from RAFA jsut to win a set.

Several in the 40+ winning streak in 2011 were insane. He was barely losing games and wasn't playing against scrubs.

Then the usual suspects like Doha 2016 final, AO 2016 SF, USO 2011 final. This year AO final might be a good call.
