Federer always comes up with a classic game, while clashing with big players in huge matches, as it was witnessed in yesterday's match against Murray, where he was simply unstoppable. Expect the same kind of a performance from the Swiss player in the finals against Djokovic, where he is said to have an overall good record against Djokovic with a lead of 16-12 wins (stats from atpworldtour.com) as far as head to head matches are compared.
But, one look at 2012 record of both the players suggests that Djokovic looks good with consistency in Grand slam matches. Novak reached three Grand Slam finals and won one of them, Australian Open and Roger has a cent percent record in the 2012 Grand slam finals with Wimbledon triumph. His game goes up a notch higher when he plays the finals of any competition. He is a player for big matches and also a big occasion. What better occasion than the ATP world tour finals for Federer!
But take nothing away from the Serbian player, who has been one of the best players in the ATP circuit capable of defeating any player. It is through his performances that Djokovic has been ranked no 1 in the ATP circuit, so the match between the two shouts for an interesting encounter between modern greats.
