He lost 6-4 6-4. Good match though. A lot of positives he can draw from this and he proved he has the game to trouble the top players.

Re: Post US Open Season 2011

expected

he might be able to trouble the top players but he's not good enough to beat them just yet

good effort anyway

Re: Post US Open Season 2011

Unfortunately I didn't get to see the match, but it sounds promising. I have the feeling that he's getting closer to taking that next step. Good effort this week!

Re: Post US Open Season 2011

Yeah Grigor lost but that was kinda expecting. He is not winning matches over top 20-25 players yet so we should not expect him doing so for a top 5. Still a long way to go and learn.
As I've read cause I haven't watched the match he lost his nerves, yelled and smash his racket at some point. That isn't the type of behavior he needs to follow if trying to move onto the next step. Losing his nerves in key moments is not leading anyware.
However there are more positives than negatives from this match, looks like he improved his game a lot. Good luck in China, Grisho

Re: Post US Open Season 2011

I'm sorry he lost but he played some amazing tennis today and he looked far better than he did all summer. He had a good gameplan, attacking short balls, playing inside the baseline and taking the ball early. I think he can learn a lot from this match as his game matched up well to Murray's until the end of each set when he got a bit tight and threw in some errors. His serve, returning, net play and backhand were all better than they were in the US this summer.

I hope he goes to China with some confidence from this week.

Re: Post US Open Season 2011

Hellooooo.... I was at the match vs Murray. Great atmosphere. Lots of people besides his fangirls cheered for him. We love the underdog esp the pretty one and he didn't embarrass his groupies, thank you Grisha.

I was watching Simon's match and didn't go waiting for him at the player exit this time (as from yesterday I believe he has a lot of groupies waiting already ) So two of my friends who has become his new fan at this tournament just had the black "GRISHA" done and went waiting for him. When he saw them (or the T-Shirt to be precise), he just walked right through them for photos Other girls were a little less privileged than his "GRISHA" groupies

In addition to his brilliant performance, he has a lot more fan in Thailand now. Smiley kid who signs everything and takes pictures with everyone for as long as it takes...

See you next year Grigor.

Tough draw but he should go to China with renewed confidence and he matched up well against Tsonga last time they played so he should believe he is capable of beating him. If he does get by Tsonga, he has an easy match in the 2nd round.

Re: Post US Open Season 2011

People, have a little faith! This is not an unwinnable match. Of course it would have been better if he had drawn a lower ranked opponent that he would be expected to beat but his confidence is high at the moment and I think he can beat Tsonga. He said after the Wimbledon match that he was unlucky to lose it so he should be relishing the chance for a re-match and if he is going to win this, he needs to believe in himself.

If he's going to become a top player, he can't run from challenges, he has to embrace them.

Re: Post US Open Season 2011

there was nothing unlucky about the loss to tsonga at wimbledon, i really hate it when players say they were "unlucky" to lose.

His game is improving but mentally he still falls apart in the wrong moments and loses his cool when things dont go his way and until he masters that he will not beat a player like tsonga

Re: Post US Open Season 2011

I thought he said he was unlucky with some points and didn't get to a 5th set, not unlucky for losing to Tsonga. Maybe you quote another interview?

Re: Post US Open Season 2011

I can't remember exactly what he said. My point was that he was speaking positively about that match which hopefully means he will go into this match believing he can beat Tsonga.
