I can also say that last year, Fed beat Djoko at the AO in 3 relatively easy sets, look what happened the next year.
It was 6-2 7-5 6-3 if I remember right. Still looking better than 6-1 6-0

Anyway, Andy and Novak are the same age, so I wouldn't compare that to Novak - Roger match up. In 2007 Roger was still at the top of his game, and in 2008 it was different Federer.
I am big Novak fan, but I am not unrealistic. It's not Djokovic who improved that much from 2007 to 2008 (he certainly did improve), it is Roger who lost his touch a little bit. Best Federer against best Djokovic would still be over in 3 relatively comfortable sets for Roger.

Best Djokovic against best Murray would be funny to watch, or sad... if you are Murray's fan.

Also that 6-1, 6-0 is because Murray wasn't playing well at he never got his game going. It has nothing to do with Novak's vast superiority. I admit that their match at Indian Wells was not much closer but the year before that they had a pretty close 3 set match.
The problem in Madrid was that Djokovic didn't realize from the start that he needs to take Murray seriously. :)

Anyway I would love see Djokovic against Murray again.

But it's easy to conclude that doing impersonations during the USO was a bad idea. I don't know why Djokovic accepted that.
I also believe it was wrong to ask him to do impersonations, though. But even so, he should have turned that offer down.
