At RG is when I began to dislike Novak.
He acted 'tired' only after losing points.
And at one point, a commentator says "if he loses the second set, he will retire".
I thought for sure it was a joke. Cuz there can't be anyone with sportsmanship that bad on tour.
Surely enough, he retires, perfectly fine.
To top it off, he walks into the press conference and acts superior to his opponent.
