I was expecting Novak to play to the gallery too actually, especially given how jovial and fun he was in the match against Monfils yesterday.
This was a disappointing exho really. Federer wasnt trying and Novak just ran over him like it was an important match. But these two have a history, and I dont think Djokovic was impressed with Federer's comments after the US Open semifinal and I guess Novak knew Fed wanted to that this as practice more than anything and decided not to give him that chance
