SAP Open Singles Draw: Recap & Match Previews

http://www.sapopentennis.com/news/news.asp?story_id=458

Quote:
The next key matchup in the first round features two players that assisted in this year’s draw ceremony. Kevin Anderson and Grigor Dmitrov were selected to play each other in the first round by none other than themselves! Although completely unpredictable, Kevin Anderson had an eerie feeling about this matchup when he said, “I knew this was going to happen.” Even tournament director Bill Rapp said, “I have never seen two players pick eachother at the opening ceremony. I have been around tennis my whole life and this is a first.” Well, fans should be happy as the 6’8 Anderson is in for a fight when he faces the 20-year old Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov. Some compare Dimitrov to Federer as he seems to effortlessly glide around the tennis court with a big forehand and classic one handed backhand. On the contrary, Anderson uses his big serve and intimidating wingspan to break down his opponents. Although heavily favored, Anderson will have to bring his A game take out the youngster. Anderson vs Dimitrov is scheduled as the second match on Monday's evening session which starts at 7PM.
this is a blog good to follow during the SAP Open for reports

The SAP Open 2012 Draw Party

http://kevware.com/tennis/?p=3072

Quote:
Welcome to the first of what I hope will be a great week of reporting from the SAP Open.

Today’s festivities began with the official draw party. ATP pros Kevin Anderson of South Africa and Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria were on hand to help with the festivities: drawing numbers to help fill in the board and answering questions about the potential match-ups. It was a much more low-key event than I expected. But it was still pretty cool.

They even went around to all of the media in attendance and had us pull numbers to place players on the draw board as well. I pulled number 28, which corresponded to a Qualifier position in the bracket. I think my pick is slated to play Jack Sock.

Truth be told I was a little busy taking pictures, writing notes, and taking in the whole experience. So I hope you’ll forgive me if I miss a detail or two. ;-)

The surprise of the draw occurred when Grigor’s number was pulled for placement opposite Kevin’s name for the first-round. It was a little awkward, but both guys handled the situation well. When asked about the potential match they were very complimentary toward one another. Yeah, right…

After the draw was complete we were given a chance to interview each of the guys before digging into some lunch items. I took full advantage and spent time with both guys. I’ll post those sport interviews in my next post.

SAP Open 2012: Grigor Dimitrov and Kevin Anderson Draw Party Interviews (AUDIO)

http://kevware.com/tennis/?p=3085

Quote:
After the draw was complete, we were offered a chance to interview the players in attendance. So I took the plunge and had a couple of quick chats with both Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria and Kevin Anderson of South Africa. The experience felt a little like speed dating, a bit awkward at first. But I think both turned out pretty well.

First up was Grigor, a very handsome guy AND talented player with a nice all court game. He is (arguably) often compared to Roger Federer. There were two other reporters there who started with him first. I joined in after a couple of minutes. It was hard to talk to him without saying “Oh my God, you are so handsome!” I think that might have killed the interview though…don’t you think?

After a quick chat with Grigor, I took the opportunity to chat with Kevin. It was pretty much just the two of us until the very end. He’s a very nice and articulate guy… with a helluva tough serve. ;-)

Interesting interview but I didn't understand this answer:

If you had a time machine and could go back and change one thing, what would it be?

September 9, 2011!


Was this just a joke answer or did something significant happen on 09/09/11 ?

Re: News & Articles about Grigor

In the interview he mentions famous painters. Although he's always been articulated, smart, I'd never thought he likes paintings. Great, intelligent guy.

Dimitrov: I train so hard in Paris that I pass out

http://www.thetennisspace.com/on-cou...at-i-pass-out/

Quote:
At the tender age of 20, Grigor Dimitrov seems to have been around for years already and has long been talked about as a potential star of the future. The former junior Wimbledon champion has largely flattered to deceive but perhaps after his first win over a top-10 player – Tomas Berdych – at the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami – the Bulgarian is ready to really make the breakthrough. If he does, then the Mouratoglou Tennis Academy must take some of the credit.

It was Peter McNamara, the former Australian doubles specialist, who helped bring Dimitrov from No 360 to 60 before the pair parted ways at the end of last year. And now it is Patrick Mouratoglou himself, who took over coaching duties, and who believes Dimitrov has what it takes to get to the top. With all the flair in the world, Dimitrov believes the academy, based on the outskirts of Paris, is the right place for his development and he told The Tennis Space what an average day at Mouratoglou entails.

“We start at 9am, have a warm-up for around 30-45 minutes and then go on court to hit for at least two hours, to work on a few things.Then we have a lunch break and then get back on court at 3pm for around an hour or an hour and a half, depending how I played in the morning.

“Following that we have a big fitness session, so that’s the most exhausting part. Afterwards, you just have a bit of spare time and there’s also a physio in the academy so if we have any problems, you can have a massage and go to him.

“Once we have had dinner, we basically sit on the couch. At about 9.30 or 10 you just pass out – I always do that. I sometimes think, ‘I’ll play on the Play Station’ but there’s absolutely no chance. I turn it on for two minutes and I’m just gone.

“I’m pretty happy with it, it’s very peaceful and I have people who are there who take care of me and that is great. The whole structure in the academy is great. To me it’s probably the best academy right now, provides you with absolutely everything. They have doctors for everything, fitness coaches and everything. There are no minuses in it.”

Re: News & Articles about Grigor

Peter Bodo on Dimitrov vs Tipsarevic

Overflowing the Cup

Quote:
You know Dimitrov—the 6'2", 20-year-old Bulgarian who’s been touted as the next Roger Federer. But judging from what I saw today, it’s more like Dimitrov is a little bit Marat Safin and a little bit Richard Gasquet. Which means he's gifted, but boy, beware the down side.
Quote:
Dimitrov’s problem, the way I see it, is that he seems intoxicated by his own power. He likes to get a lot of action on the ball, but that requries taking huge cuts; it’s a demanding way to make a living, and you can take that quest for naked power too far. A cup that’s overflowing is no more desireable than a cup that isn’t full. Tipsarevic, by contrast, has a beautifully modulated game. He understands his shortcomings and strengths, and picks his spots carefully. His cup is brim full.
Simply put - He needs more experience and more matches... Not too bad at Miami.
