Fed was treating this match as an exho.
Clowning around with the ball kids, making some obvious
challenges (two in a row on a serve of his actually, both at similar situations, both of course wrong
), all in all, the outcome of this match was N.I.D. and I wasn't the only one around to witness it to believe that he actually granted De Bakker a few extra games for pure entertainment purposes.
And entertainment it indeed was.
part of the tournament may or may not be starting off tomorrow.
About 99% of Fed fans who were actually there - like me - got the same impression of this match.
N.I.D. to the extreme.
Funny to notice that De Bakker actually beat Benneteau a couple of hours later... in the doubles match,
