Wawrinka by and large figured Djokovic out, still didn't beat the grinding beast of Serbia on some occasions where he was getting help from the umpires.
You are clearly not understanding my point.Mate you don't have a point that much is clear. Saying Novak was not a threat to Fed until 2009 is not only ridiculous but inaccurate. He beat Fed in 2007 Montreal Masters finals and challenge him in 2007 USO F and beat him 2008 AO.SF. so you're very much wrong. That was all within less than year of him being a top 3 player. So it's clear as day Novak was always a threat.
Before 2009 the rivalry had barely started, it was maybe a year and half old, So you saying "until 2009 " as if there is anything to really go off before that The bottom line is. Fed has failed time and time again when it comes to big matches against Novak. You cherry picking that small time period makes no sense when they played another 12 years and fed got beat constantly
Right, Fed declined conveniently started at ripe age 27-28 when Nadal and Novak started Rising. What a coincidence
