I wouldn't be surprised to see him pick up another major at all this season and hope he does so as well.

He has to be so at ease with himself having won a couple of Slams now. He mentions that in the last Aus open final (though he lost) it was the most comfortable he had ever felt during a Slam final, and that after winning the first set he knows he had a couple of opportunities to win the second it didn't happen and Novak triumphed. It seems that there are very fine margins between success and failure at the top level.

Would be nice to see him get to the Aussie Final and get an 'easier' game in the final, as he's always had Fed or Djok. But its hard to see past Murray, Novak or Nadal for the title.
