Jumping the gun may be putting it lightly, but what I am sure of is that Djokovic is blazing out of the gates, and even if he doesn't win another slam in 2011, he's already made his mark.

At 23, the man is echoing the career of Federer—simply unstoppable.

His 20-0 start this season is the likes of which only Lendl showcased more than 20 years ago.

The Sony Ericsson, Monte Carlo and Rome ATP tournaments are up next and although Djokovic can't possibly win them all ( or can he? ) his drive for world No. 1 is drawing closer.

It will come down to the French Open, and it's just a matter of fuel whether Djokovic can burn past Nadal with the French Open crown.
