Roger was not running for any balls or putting in any effort, he even kept his rolex on for gods sake! A ROLEX WATCH. while playing tennis. unheard of.
Djokovic thinks that this will send a message, playing like it's one of the first matches of the official season when really he will just not be as prepared for what Federer may bring to him in Australia.
as another poster pointed out, Ferrer and Djokovic appear to be going for it, trying to send a message that their game is there, and Federer and Nadal just taking it easy. smart for Federer. no reason to risk injury, and some of you acting like this result means anything are fools. Djokovic was feeling the ball well but Roger was not even bothering to chase down 90% of Djokovic's good shots and making many unforced errors due to his lax style in exo's
If this was true (which I doubt) then I have to say this: What a sad, poor, pathetic ambassador for the sport this Federer is.
