Novak Djokovic has finally settled the score against Roger Federer, he is now ahead by 1 match 23-22 something that he was able to do against Nadal as well, sure that his wins came at his peak but his defeats were during the times when he was not this good. Those who say Fed has declined a lot is simply making that as an excuse.
Novak Dominated the match even if he lost the 3rd set, Federer had to earn his victory and almost got broken again through his serve. Federer won the 3rd set 6-3 but that was the last of it.
6 – 1
6 – 2
3 – 6
6 – 3
Federer is a great champ no doubt but to discount the greatness of Novak is blasphemy just compare the top 10 players in his Era and to Federer’s Era

Out of all these guys Andre Agassi and Andy Roddick are the that good. Carlos Moya,JCF where already on the downside of their careers. You could just imagine if it was Djokovic in this Era he would have done the same. But dont doubt the career of Djokovic he is now 1 step closer to his 11th Career Grandslam and it doesn’t look like he would stop anytime soon. It is not going to be easy at all because these top 10 players can certainly beat anyone in their prime.
Stats wont lie, Head to head they are even 22 wins vs 22 wins in 44 matches, Djokovic was way behind and was able to catch up and hasn’t really lost to one particular player that seems to be his kryptonite. This match will determine who is really superior between the two. I understand that this maybe past Federer’s prime but you are kidding yourself if you would say that he has declined a lot. It is just fair that Djokovic was able to catch up to Federer’s level through these years. Djokovic Quarter Finals performance: 6-3,6-2,6-4 against Nishikori
