Sensible decision. Truth is the public doesn't care about djokovic.
When number one, there was a kind of polite but embarassing silence when he was playing, people wondering why this guy was number one and not fed or nadal.
people might as well watch a wall play against shelves and they would find that equally enjoyable
I'm sure this will come as a surprise to you, but not everybody thinks the same, not everybody has the same tastes as you do. What you wonder is not what everybody wonders. What you find enjoyable or not enjoyable, is not shared by everybody.
Having said that, it's an exhibition tournament. The organisers can do whatever they want. Who cares?
