Is it a bad idea to lose to a rival in an exhibition?

I just noticed something:

- Federer had never lost to Soderling until 2010. There he loses the Abu Dhabi exhibition against him, and next match they play on the tour at Roland he loses.

- Federer had barely ever lost to Roddick. He loses their exhibition match in 2012 against him, and next match they play Roddick plays out of his mind and beats Roger.

So do you think players should take exhibition matches against big rivals more seriously? Can it give an extra pump to the rival if he was to win?

This signature is in no way ironic. Please don't ever let El Tio think that, for my sake!

not really, Olderer was jet lagged for the Garden Match vs. Roddick.

Murray wins Wimbledon 2016 after Djokovic is blue shelled by Querrey. Thanks Querrey!

Not to mention that Nadal has pretty much owned Federer in every exho match as well, except one I think.
