Grisha!
I am really glad he has gather himself together in the middle of second set! Was very off, struggling to put a serve in, but managed to hold few times even when games went to deuce! Last year Grigor would have lost this match 6-3 6-1 something! well done! Benny helped a lot tanking the 3rd set when got a break down, though, but I'll take that!
Brilliant play to get the break in the 2nd and cold head and no nerves to serve it out!
Good luck next round, Grisha!

Re: ☼ 2012 Grigor on Clay, again ☼

What a match! Really pleased with the way he played overall and especially with the way he turned it around in the 2nd set. That's what he needs to do to become a top player. He served 9 aces and won 79% of points on 1st serve but he will need to get more of those in if he wants to progress here.

The win takes him up to 58 in the live rankings but more importantly, will be good for his confidence.

He plays Brown next who is in good form at the moment. Grigor should be able to win it though.

I would expect Grigor to win the next match but Brown is playing well at the moment and has a dangerous serve so we can't take it for granted.

Grigor won the 1st set 7-6. He didn't play that well but he raised his game in the tie-break to take it. Brown's 1st serve is difficult to read but once they got into baseline rallies, Grigor was usually the better player.
