Re: Miami 2011

(3)Roger Federer (SUI) bye
Fabio Fognini (ITA) vs Radek Stepanek (CZE)
Sergiy Stakhovsky (UKR) vs Grigor DIMITROV (BUL)
bye vs (32)Juan Monaco (ARG)

Stakhovsky is not a good choice at all, but we have to do with that comes. He is in good form, but prefers faster courts and has not played in the US this spring yet. Grigor has the match practice on his side so come ooooon!!!

As for Monaco and Federer - I doubt we can reach the match with Federer, but it is a good dream to hope for and I sure hope for it a lot!

Re: Miami 2011

Stakhovsky isn't bad opponent but yes, he is tricky player... Good luck Grisho!!!

And catatonia you are right, but it's really for good dream... I want to see Federer - Dimitrov match but just a little chance.

Never ever give up

Re: Miami 2011

The draw is quite interesting. Hope Grigor beats at least Stakhovsky. I think his chances versus Monaco are at about 35%, but why not. I'll be happy if he passes 1st round

Grigor Dimitrov | Rafael Nadal | Juan Martin del Potro | Andy Murray

Why not Harrison? Harrison is younger, less experienced, and in my opinion less talented. Though, I do think Harrison has better tennis intelligence and a better mental game. As an American I would have LOVED to see that. And IMO, I think it would have been a great match and Dimitrov would end up the victor. I'm curious. Why do you think it was best to avoid him?

Alas, it's not to be.

BTW, there are a lot of interesting possible 2nd/3rd round match ups and beyond. Such as:
Dimitrov (Baby Fed) vs Federer.
Berankis (who many consider Dimi's rival) vs Nadal (Federer's rival).
Harrison (America's future) vs Roddick (America's current star)
Devvarman vs Raonic (The first was a two time college singles national champ for University of Virginia and the Second promised to go to that same university of Virginia but chose to go Professional at the last second instead)

It'll also be interesting to see how Del Potro does.

I watched him against Guillermo Garcia-López and he seemed really good. American public with him...
And if two talented player play against each other never know what will happen.

Yeah, you are right about interesting match.

Never ever give up

Re: Miami 2011

The match against Stakhovsky is thrid on court No 1 today and that means around 14:30 local time (20:30 BG/19:30 CET).

Good luck!!!

Re: Miami 2011

Grigor lost!

I hope he manages somehow with this obvious psychological problem. This match was exactly like the one with Gasquet. Getting too nervous and lost his service. That's it.

Re: Miami 2011

Looks like he lost 6-2, 6-4. According to the stats, he didn't serve particularly well and seemed to have lacked confidence from the beginning. He's really improved since last year but still has a long ways to go.

Re: Miami 2011

Yep, he surely has some problems when he faces higher ranked players on such occasions. It is strange as he had no such problems facing Berdych, Simon and Nadal at the beginning of his professional career. However, I think he needs just a couple of victories to get his confidence and game going and they will come in the near future.

Re: Miami 2011

I have to admit that I'm a bit disapointed. Sure I didn' expect him to win 60 60 but such a clear loss ... :-( anyway now it is going on sand. New surface new opportunities...
