There is something off about Novak Djokovic. Yes, he is pushing the whole idea of family life and other things taking the front seat but he is increasingly giving many doubts about his recent work ethics.

The withdrawal of Nadal was also a sudden change in the tournament, which might also be seen that it led the way for Murray and Novak to meet in the finals.

The tournament itself had an uncertain beginning. The weather being cold and gray did not help to attract people to the stands during the games.
