I mean - don't they listen each other at all

Anyway,
for the match with Murray I would be very happy if he could keep the score close or even winning a set....or two
Murray's the favourite but Grigor has nothing to lose, he's playing well and he's shown he has the game to trouble the top players, he just lacks consistency. If he serves well and is aggressive, I think he can win it. If not, there's no shame in losing to the #4 player in the world.

Re: Post US Open Season 2011

Yes, I'm one of the groupies with black "Grisha" T-Shirt. There are 4 of us today. Prob more tmr. Murray will have a lot more support of course but with Grigor being his showman self (while Muzz is total opposite), Grigor will turn a lot of them. Most of the fan will be neutral and not very vocal, so I believe my friends and I can still be heard, haha.

One funny story, today we sat closer to a guy we met during BKK challengers last year. (He was a trainer/physio for local tennis players and he seems to know Grigor and Dmitry Tursunov very well.)

Today he told me that yesterday after Grigor finished his 'boxing exho', when meeting him on the player's bus, Grigor just practiced his new boxing move on him

Also, this guy asked me today if we prepared anything special to cheer for Grigor coz the kid just kept boasting that he has his own groupies in Thailand.

Just some trivial I thought you may like it

Haha, that's cool he said that about you. It must be great for any young player to know they have fans on the the other side of the world that come to support them. Keep up the good work.

Maybe the Muay Thai kick boxing had a positive effect on Grigor.

After the match, Grigor stayed on court to sign for the (new) fan and there were a lot more people waiting for him at the player's exit. It's good the kid has more fan as it has been proven so many time that he plays better with loud support from the fan. He's born showman.
thanks for the report

to bad to here simone was playing like crap, this was a lose-lose/win-win for me

Re: Post US Open Season 2011

Highlights video of the match on an Italian website. There's a shot at 2.01 of a woman in a black Grisha t-shirt. Is that you, Blue? Great point at 3-1 30-40 where Grigor falls and gets back up and wins the point.

Re: Post US Open Season 2011

I am waking up at 5am to watch the match with Murray! I think Grisho can at least take a set. Hopefully he is not too nervous, he has absolutely nothing to lose!

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!

Yes, this is the groupies he's been boasting about The woman in black is Grigor #1 fan since his challenger in Bangkok two years ago. ( I was sitting next to them, carrying a camera (luckily I wasn't on TV this time )

Re: Post US Open Season 2011

Good start. He's serving well & playing attacking tennis. That's the way to do it.

Re: Post US Open Season 2011

2-2 but Grigor is moving forward a lot and attacking everything. Great to watch so far.

Re: Post US Open Season 2011

What a rally! 3-2 to Dimitrov. He's looking sharp today.

If he can keep this level up it should be a hell of a match.

Re: Post US Open Season 2011

I can't watch the english stream, too jerky. Got the french one. I've said it before and i'll say it again. WOW this kid has talent! he's really taking the match to Murray, great to see. Some amazing shots.

Dimitrov • Mahut • Paire • Hewitt • Raonic • Berdych • Gulbis • Murray


Thanks for the memories... Andy Roddick.
