So Jeremy Chardy and Fernando Verdasco get 250,000 for the cheering squad. Sounds like a great deal to me.

Few rounds of 'Allez Roger' and voila.. quarter mill in your pocket and name recognition.
 
You are taking this too seriously.

Think of it this way - the tournament wants to be unique, introduce novelty and gradually increase the tempo to reach a climax on day 3

And you are going to have lower ranked players and day 1 is the chance to shine and for the bigger players to combine for doubles

Novak and Fed on the same side of the court and the intensity they fought will be remembered forever.
I respect your opinion but humbly disagree.

Djokovic-Anderson 6:7(5), 1:1
Anderson's service works great today, so Djoker has a great deal of trouble on his return.

Anderson is also very good today in rallies, so for Djoker is hard to find a recipe for his game's today.

I feel like Djokovic is somewhat let down by the fact that he has a team of players rooting for him. He can’t really play the villain role that he subconsciously cherishes in these big matches.
Irony...But well could be the truth.. He may need adversity. He has it now that he is a set down and serving from behind.

Yeah, Anderson's rock solid tonight. For some reason I had a feeling he'd win this one and it looks like he will. Oh well, should make day 3 more interesting if nothing else.
