☼ 2012 Grigor on Clay, again ☼

(1)Ferrer, David vs Bye
Capdeville, Paul vs Bolelli, Simone
Zeballos, Horacio vs Souza, Joao
(WC)Robredo, Tommy vs (8)Ungur, Adrian
(3)Ramos, Albert vs Bye
Q vs Q
Gil, Frederico vs Ilhan, Marsel
Dutra Silva, Rogerio vs(6)Dimitrov, Grigor

A really good chance to enter his first SF on clay.
But step by step, hope he can pass R1 easily and keep healthy.
I guess Sweden is cooler than England.

Re: ☼ 2012 Grigor on Clay, again ☼

Grigor is not on the schedule for Monday so he most likely play on Tuesday. A great chance here, let's hope he is healthy and motivated!

RAFAEL NADAL and GRIGOR DIMITROV

Rafa winning at least one slam in 10 consecutive years is the best achievement in Open Era tennis since Laver won all 4 Grand slam tournaments in the same year!


Don't ever underestimate the heart of a champion!

I've never seen his R1 opponent but it would be great if he can win it easily and do well here. It will give him some confidence going into the Olympics. Good luck Grigor!

Looks like he is good on clay like probably every South American guy. Last week he won a Challenger in Panama without losing a set, but I don't know if he will be OK after playing all week long and then traveling all the way to Sweden Grigor is the favourite and I hope he will take advantage of the fact that for once he is seeded

Grigor is still not on the OOP of Tuesday, Panama city is really very very very far from Sweden........
I still remember how Sydney treated Grigor this January, Swedish is so kind.

Re: ☼ 2012 Grigor on Clay, again ☼

Anyone know when they are going to start broadcasting matches from Bastad? I checked Livescorehunter and there are no feeds from this tournament today.

I don't understand how an ATP tournament in Sweden can't provide live feeds for matches but challengers in Scheveningen and Bogota can.

The official facebook page said it's broadcasting in Sweden TV4 SPORT, but I have no idea if anybody share the streaming on the internet

Am watching now. Lots of gifted UFE from the opponent. This should be easy one. Grigor's serve is average to poor at the moment.
