Whos cares? It's Abu Dhabi! An exhibition! The organisers are entitled to organise their event as they see fit.
I'm interested to see how Novak will play the event mentally, if he beats Gael and faces Roger.
Will he play below his level to make Roger cocky and overconfident?
Will he play his best tennis to frighten Roger even more, by saving MPs, for instance?
I wonder... I very much wonder.
