Insane level. Barring an injury, will be very surprised if it is not CYGS this year.

I'm afraid you're overstating it a bit. Nobody can keep up this level for the whole year.

Even if he drops his level it should be enough. Only player that can stop him might be Kyrgios in Wimbledon. Other players don't have the level or the balls to do it.

You know there's a reason nobody's done it since Rod Laver. And there have been better players than Djokovic. There are loads of people who could beat Djokovic at Wimbledon and the USO.

Kyrgios at W? First week there would be a chance. But they won't play first week. And on the second week's grass? Nope.

Has anyone ever been SO head and shoulders above everyone else on EVERY surface? That's the reason we talk about it.

Well, Nadal was stopped by injury at the AO 2010 (not saying he would have won it otherwise).

And Fed was close in 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2009. He was only stopped by peak Safin, peak Nadal and peak Delpo. Players with similar potential do not exist anymore.

He was beaten by Nishikori and Wawrinka in slams last year, and nearly lost to Federer. So his invincibility is a myth I'm afraid.

He's not head and shoulders above everyone at Wimbledon or the US Open. He's moreso at AO and FO and he's going to win them. But it just gets harder from here. Especially since he insists on winning every Masters which is going to burn him out soon enough.

I have to agree watching him live against Murray right now. It's the best I've seen since Nadal 2013 USO.

I don't even think he is playing that well myself, i think his level overall was better in 2011 and please don't tell me his volleys have improved.

We've seen the head and shoulders at Wimbledon and Us Open last year and Dubai this year as well. He will have problems with certain players on faster surfaces, don't you doubt it will be much tougher for him.
