Re: Post US Open Season 2011

Great win for Grigor! Good luck in doubles and in the next round!

RAFAEL NADAL and GRIGOR DIMITROV

Rafa winning at least one slam in 10 consecutive years is the best achievement in Open Era tennis since Laver won all 4 Grand slam tournaments in the same year!


Don't ever underestimate the heart of a champion!

Re: Post US Open Season 2011

From the ATP website,

Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov knocked out fifth seed Ivan Dodig of Croatia 6-2, 7-5 in one hour and 33 minutes on Monday at the PTT Thailand Open.

Dimitrov, who started the year at No. 106 in the South African Airways 2011 ATP Rankings, won 73 per cent of his service points and hit four aces to record his 14th match win of the season.

"I thought it was a great match today," said Dimitrov, who is now 6-6 lifetime on indoor courts. "I'm still overcoming the jetlag, but I hope to do well here as I was really looking forward to playing in Bangkok. It has been a great experience so far.

"My game is improving, after a couple of rough months, but I am working hard and trying to progress. Today, it all kind of clicked into place."

Re: Post US Open Season 2011

Hi guys, I just returned from Grigor's match. Grigor was solid today, good service % as well. Plus Dodig gave away too many UFEs to his lil' double partner. Grigor had some flashy BH/FH passing shots and a couple of incredible gets to attract "ooh" and "aah" from the audience who's never seen him play before. Before his match, we (my friends & I, the local groupies from Challenger tournies) saw him coming to practice and showed him T-Shirts with his names on it. During the match, we kinda made sure that he heard us as well

It was a good win and we were so happy. We also waited for him at the player's exit after the match for more photos and signatures... He is not popular here (yet), so there were only us the groupies and another guy. So we had a chance to chatted with him a little bit. He said he remembered us and he heard the "c'mon" yelling from us. The kid knows how to please his fangirls, doesn't he?

Bolelli/Fognini - Dimitrov/Dodig 7-5 3-6 [10-4]

Let's hope Grigor will beat Bolelli in singles after that loss in doubles

I watched his double match today. It was very close. Bolelli served so well (despite tough match with Gulbis). Handling Bolelli's serve could be a problem during single match. Anyway C'Mon Grigor.

Re: Post US Open Season 2011

He's the final match on Centre Court tomorrow. It's great that the tournament thinks so highly of him that they put him on CC at night for the second match in a row. Hopefully the Murray match will be a long one and I will get a chance to see some of Grigor's match when I get home from work.

Re: Post US Open Season 2011

I don't expect them to do well in Hopman Cup, but if they play together as well in Wimbledon and the Olympic games - they are going to be a very good couple there Tsveti and Grisho on grass - Really want to see that

maybe that was the idea behind the invitation
there must have been some weaker teams to ensure Australia will get some wins

However I agree Tsvetana and Grigor on grass could be very interesting to watch since both of them are best on grass. Kinda strange that, 'cause there is not even a single grass court in whole Bulgaria but they had achived the biggest success in their carriers so far on that surface.
