The number of games is too low here, even for the #1 in the world. Djokovic has said this is the worst court he's ever played on, its basically clay poured over a parque floor, with all kinds of holes in the clay. I doubt he's going to be going all out for ever ball in these conditions, rather playing conservatively in order to avoid injury.

The second reason is that Rochus has always played him well. Even though he is better and Olivier is older these days, their last two matches in 2010 both went the distance (5 and 3 sets)  with Rochus winning one of them. Rochus only needs to win 8 games to get the over and I think he'll get it done with the crowd behind him and the court conditions (which I'm sure he's been practicing on the last week or so) in his favour more than Djokovic,
