Yeah I figured that but just couldn't believe that Dodig played terribly enough to lose in straight sets against THIS Grigor.

Definitely! I usually don't mind a little frustration here and there... I'm just afraid it will make things worse for Grigor. I already picture him losing his focus completely if he lets his frustrations get the better of him. But that's just me. He could show more positive passion for my liking, though. Like pushing himself by celebrating winners... or working on that backhand. That surely wouldn't hurt either...

Re: Grigor in 2012 (general)

I only saw a few bits and pieces of the match, but it was enough to see that Grigor simply doesn't have a game plan and does not move around the court well enough to win a decent percentage of rallies. Ferrer is someone he will never be able to beat from the baseline, and he should know that. In my opinion hard work will beat talent about eighty percent of the time and this result was clearly no surprise. Until Grigor realizes that he needs to play offensive tennis and try to perfect that part of his game, he will be a middle of the road player with a few successes here and there. There's no shame in losing to Ferrer, but it's shameful to come in unprepared.

Yep, Ferru didn't even have to bring his B game.

Re: Grigor in 2012 (general)

I'm so sad for this so bad perfomance of Grigor.
The only think I can forgeve to him if his wrist hurted after falling during the 1st round. He also had a wound to the elbow.
He was really aout of the match, no fire, no motivation.

Hello, I don't think the problem is the OHBH - the problem is mental and he needs to work hard over his BH to make it more consistent because the shot is good - also the slice. Perheps if he hadn'it I didn't notice him.

PS: I don't know how Grigor can tell that his better shot is the BH

Re: Grigor in 2012 (general)

Watched back the match against Tipsarevic; he actually looked much better than he did against Berdych in my opinion. The one thing I really noticed was that his backhand return was very inconsistent at best. If he can improve this aspect, he'll find himself in a lot more return games.

Great week practice with Grigor. Intense, physical and mentally challenging. We went two times to Roland Garros for trainings with Paul-Henri Mathieu and worked hard.

Re: Grigor in 2012 (general)

Andy Murray, Rafael Nadal and Grigor Dimitrov among the contenders for 2012 best tennis shot

Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov came up from the backline to hit a stunning half volley drop shot which defied belief against Viktor Troicki in Basel.
