It's only an exho, so no big deal for Nole! Besides it would be nice to finally watch Nole vs. Roger in an exho for once.

Default Re: Your thoughts on Djokovic not receiving bye.

too many variables to know for sure.

who knows if Nadal and Federer signed contracts and demanded that they gets BYES long ago...

who knows if the Exhibition tournament expected someone to play the tournament but a player or two opted out so they were forced to give byes to the SEMI's Fed and Nadal.

Maybe Djokovic asked for it. Maybe Djokovic agreed to play at the tournament at a late date and they had to throw him in there without a bye. there are lots of possibilities and it is hard to know.

either way not a big deal being just an exo, interesting for sure, but unless Djokovic states in an interview "I have been treated unfairly considering my status" (which he has too much class to say anyway), you shouldn't really worry about it

Its an exho
And Djokovic was a late entrant and the top seeds had already been decided by then

Nole needs matches, so I think it's actually a good thing. Though it's an exo in the end, so doesn't really matter

Wow I thought this was a serious thread. Then I came in and saw that it's only about an exho.

Who cares? Every word being spent on this discussion is meaningless.

So I'm going to stop here

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
