    Finally got around to watching the highlights. Did my eyes deceive me or did Djoker actually restrain himself from ripping his shirt off? Is it possible that Djokovic is accruing some class as a world #1?

    no, it was such a boring and non dramatic match that there was no need for "gorilla rip".

    He doesn't rip his shirt against Murray (not confirmed but I think so).
    Could have done it in Rome for example, but didn't.

    They lowered his PED intake so he does not have quite as much 'roid rage behind his post match celebration.

    He only does that after 5 setters.

    I was waiting for him to do it because after such a flat match it would have been hilariously awkward.

    Azarenka's reaction was also subdued but she may not have had much of a choice after the reaction to her MTO antics and also Li injuring herself.

    There is no point, the match was so timid compared to the 5 setters Novak is capable of.

    You guys must think Novak rips off his shirt to rub it in his opponent's faces or something. Novak himself said he wasn't even really thinking or planning his shirt rips, just that his euphoria in the moment (of winning titanic five-setters) led him to those rips. He doesn't even do it that often...sheeh.
