Good boy. Very lucky with the net He did well at this tournament. Solid and not losing concentration. Ramos was tough opponent, not giving away too many points. Grigor was more patient (or less aggressive) in this match comparing to the last two.

Re: ☼ 2012 Grigor on Clay, again ☼

Great match from Grigor. He won 82% of points on 2nd serve and I'm not surprised, it was kicking up around Ramos' head. His backhand is on fire at the moment and it's great to see his fighting spirit. Every time today and yesterday he was down a break, he has broken right back. The point he finished on was beautiful to watch and I loved his reaction at the end.

On this form, he can beat Ferrer or Robredo

I was very impressed with his level today. The one thing that surprised me was points won on 1st serve. He served amazingly well at Wimbledon and he will need to do that again tomorrow to beat Ferrer. I think he has a good chance to do it if he can play his best.

Surprising to see him do so well on second serve, and he seems to be focused. Hopefully he can mix it up enough to make Ferrer think about how to play him. He's got a good chance if he serves well and keeps the unforced errors to a minimum. Great to seem him develop in front of our eyes...you can tell he's becoming more comfortable being on the tour. Good Luck tomorrow!

That was some shot.

Here is his interview after the Ramos match. I like his smile at 1.25 when the interviewer tells him he's "getting a lot smarter out there".

Got off to a slow start but hung tough and saved 3 BPs. Loved the crowd-pleasing shot between the legs. 1-1

He broke after Ferrer double faulted. Just like his last two matches, as soon as he gets broken, he breaks right back.
