We cannot, only two players took the event seriously, Nadal for obvious reasons(return from injury), Goffin because he knows exhibition events is where he really stands a chance.
Milos produced some shocking volleys against Nadal yesterday, trying something new, which clearly didn't work out, after hiring Krajicek.
Andy doesn't want to share his tactics yet and Tomas is now an ex player who should consider retiring.
Even if Rafa won the whole thing he's still the same of 2015/2016 and I would be very, very surprised if he wins anything worth mentioning in 2017. Too slow and zero power on both wings.
