Re: Grigor Dimitrov

He has a really big forehand, it was by far the best shot of either player today. He likes to run around his backhand to hit it. His backhand is ok, it's a fairly solid one-hander, it wasn't nearly as impressive as his forehand. His serve is good, it's a shot that will improve I think. He moved fairly well, and he really seems to detest volleying. He almost never came to net, he is really a baseliner through and through. That's something he'll have to improve on.

The match should have been easier, really, he was a much better player than Angus. Angus has rather underwhelming groundstrokes, and a second serve that bounces short and with little pace on it. Grigor should have been doing more with it in the first set than he was, but he made a few too many silly errors. The second set was better, and he cleaned up his game more. He was fairly impressive throughout, just needs to clean up some of the errors if he wants to win the tournament.

Thank you for your report. I haven't watched Grigor play and I don't know what his game is like. I read he liked to play on HC but strangely he has more success on clay. About his next opponent Adam report says

Quote:
Cesar Ramirez the 3rd seed probably hasn't played too much on grass, he's a lot more physically developed than most of the other juniors so he kind of bulked his way through if that makes sense.
Well it's good if Cesar's game on grass isn't too good but if the guy is strong and have a solid serve (today he's been serving at 65% but winning 80% on FS and 64% on SS, and 44% on receiving) I hope Grigor comes up with a good tactic and tries and block Cezar's serve.

Anyway good luck to Grigor. I'd wish he cuts off juniors and starts playing more ATP matches. He's 17 already, time for a break through in men's circuit.

When I'm good, I'm very good...but when I'm bad, I'm better

Re: Grigor Dimitrov

Great Result, Grigor really looks like an all court player which will get him a better ranking quicker

Re: Grigor Dimitrov

I am watching the match live and fo now grigor is winning but hi is serving like he just graduated the kinder garden. his average is about 85-88 mph on first serve. he is cracking the forehand though especially the one down the line I like that shot. his backhand is not bad also if only he was not trying for stupid drop-shots when he is in winning position. over all he was playing much better yesterday against the mexican guy.

Re: Grigor Dimitrov

he has a strange ritual every time he hits the tape of the net and the ball rolls over he goes over and touches the net with his raquet.
