Definitely taking it a bit easy/casual. I'm sure he could do more even now. He drove some balls, and he was never the most powerful guy(though sometimes it almost looked like it with his theatrical grunts and swings), but of course, when he was on tour, he hit almost every ball with all his might! This was nowhere near that level of pace and spin.
Partly though, he was just pacing himself, clearly winded at moments, if he swung like he did when he was in his prime, he'd probably have a coronary in the first game!
