All the best to the neighbour Grigor. I like his game.

Just that he is away from Novak, Janko i Viktor and he could do some serious damage in the first week

Srećno Grigore

Grigor opens against Kubot. That's winnable especially after their Gstaad match

If he beats Kubot, he plays the winner of SImon-Kukushkin. If he maintains his current form, he can beat all those guys.

This is a good draw, it's up to him to take advantage of it.

Re: ☼Grigor's Olympic debut at London 2012☼

it looks like a decent draw for someone with his ranking!
I hope he capitalize here and reach the 3rd round

Ben Rothenberg of The New York Times has mentioned him as a possible outsider to be in contention for a medal

Pretty remarkable that someone from that Ferrer-del Potro quarter will be in the medal rounds. Maybe streaking Dimitrov? Nishikori? Simon?
He should be looking at his draw and thinking it's time to really step up

Re: ☼Grigor's Olympic debut at London 2012☼

yes it is time, however Grigor was on a verge of something before yet last year he went on a losing streak to top players with a very nervous matches missing just a little.
What will he do now I don't know. It is important how he starts the tournament, Kubot won't be so easy as it seems, but there is a potential for something bigger, I agree.
However this is Grigor. Best tactic is match by match and let's see what happens. I hope this time he makes it.

Damn! I was hoping he would play on Sunday so I could see him play his first round match. He had better win so I can see him on Monday.

Grigor won R1 at Olympic by 63 76(4)
He played very tightly in 2nd set, but he rallied the set and got it!!
it must be a solid match if we can watch it will be better
so curious what he wore

Re: ☼Grigor's Olympic debut at London 2012☼

Great result today. I was fallowing it on Livescore on the train journey down and my 3G signal cut out when he was set point down so I was abit worried for a while. Great to see him hanging tough and pulling through this match. Hopefully he can take down Simon next. As long as he's not playing on Court1 on Monday, I should be able to watch him.

Cool outfit btw. I'm glad he's playing in the Bulgarian colours and it might inspire him to greater things.

Lukasz Kubot:
Quote:
"I played better today and knew exactly what to expect, but he kept surprising me, he kept changing tactics. His serve was superb today, won a lot of key points and, in my opinion, he will be in the top 20 in the world within 2-3 years, maybe even in the top 10," said Lukasz.

"In the second set I was better than my opponent and deserved to take it. I have nothing to regret as I played pretty well on important points. My opponent, I'll say it once again, served very well and this is what decided the match".
