I respect your opinion but humbly disagree.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.
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.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.
