grigor's game is coming together but jeremy's victory last year also came at a time when nothing was really expected of him and his results werent great

but jeremy has been in good form to end the season last year and comes in to this season winning a challenger title so i dont think we can take to much from the match last year because they are both playing much better
And its not on clay, Grigor is the fave thats for sure,i believe he will win 6-4 7-5 6-4 or smomething like that

Fish was not playing that well too. Besides Chardy won in straights sets the last time they played. Just some reasons to think about.
IMO this first match will be very hard, especially the first set, assuming Chardy will got that self confidence on his side. If Grigor plays well and wins it it will be a lot easier from then on.
Match with Fish only reveals that Grigor is in a great shape and very concentrated. A good sign to begin with...
I agree and in the RG match, Chardy got a lot of free points on his serve. Success for Grigor will depend on how well he reads Chardy's serve. If he's returning well and plays like he did in Perth, he stands a very good chance of winning the match.

Chardy is good on clay, but in AO he's got 2R only.

If Dimitrov plays well, should beat Chardy of course. Good luck Grisho!!

Never ever give up

Re: Grigor in 2012 (general)

Based on what I've seen, Grigor seems to be a different player than last year. I think having that whole year on tour, he's taken his lumps and knows how to go after his opponent now. Watching footage from the Australian Open last year vs Wawrinka and his most recent match against Fish, he's taken tremendous strides and is no doubt ready for this challenge. He'll probably have a letdown during this match, but I expect him to win in 4 sets.

Re: Grigor in 2012 (general)

The biggest improvement is that he's stepping into the court and playing more aggressively. Last year he was letting his opponents dictate the rallies but against Fish, he was always looking for ways to attack. He's clearly worked on his fitness in the off-season, he looks stronger and his balance has improved. I can't wait to see how he plays this match against Chardy.

Re: Grigor in 2012 (general)

Good luck Grigor for the AO.

I met him during Hopman Cup and he was so friendly. Watched him live against Fish and knew he would win when I saw him practice before cos he was hitting the ball so cleanly.

tomic - cilic - simon - gasquet - dmitrov - golubev

& serena williams.

Re: Grigor in 2012 (general)

I'm not going to be able to watch the match as I have a big day at work tomorrow. Hopefully I will wake up to a Grigor victory and if anyone on here does watch the match, please post a commentary on it as it will be great to read how Grigor played. With any luck there will be a video of the match so I can get a chance to see it.

Good luck Grigor.

Re: Grigor in 2012 (general)

Grigor wasted 3 BP and then got broken. Chardy will serve for the set. Seems slightly off, not finding his rythm and shots, serve is not working eighter...Not a good start.

Re: Grigor in 2012 (general)

still not playing well, but Chardy dropped his level too. Hopefully he will close the 2nd set!
