Novak is still rusty. He hasn't look like he's there the whole time. He doesn't look fit enough or in shape enough to do damage at the Masters. He seemed a bit gingerly and tentative with his serves and stretching out. He wasn't willing to go for it as much. I think he's rusty and worried about getting re-injured. Novak does have a tendancy to pull back when he's worried about his health.
He also really seemed to check out after going down 0-3 in the 3rd set. I wasn't surprised at that point that he got bageled, he just wanted out in my opinion.
