Mr. 44-1 for the year had gone through his first two rounds without any trouble at all. Nevertheless, Baghdatis gave the Serb a good fight and some temper too.
Grass is not Djokovic’s favorite surface, but it would be silly to say that he cannot excel on this surface. He has reached the Wimbledon semifinals twice and the Queen’s Club final once.
The Serb has enough talent to get to this year’s final, the only place he could meet Nadal. If they do happen to meet, the Spaniard would be wary of the four losses Djokovic has handed to him this year.
Even so, were they to meet, Nadal would pick up his game significantly—as he always does in major finals—and he would also draw on experience to drive him through.
