Hopefully Dimitrov. Lopez won't give him too much rhythm, and his slices may cause some problems for Grigor, but if he serves well, he'll have a solid chance.

Everyone knows he's a pretty good grass player. But when you're in a slump, you're in a slump.

Ernests Gulbis. Robin Soderling. Tomas Berdych.

Come on Grisha! After watching him yesterday, it's clear that everything is there, it's just his shot selection and he needs to put more heavy topspin on his strokes.

I wouldn't say he was in a slump, only because he lost to Reister. He has these losses ever once in a while. He had two good tournaments this year, the rest solid or early losses, nothing spectacularly good or bad. Should be enough for Dimitrov.

Re: Queen's:R2: Dimitrov vs. Lopez

Feliciano should win something like 6-3 6-4 but I can see Grigor making it close and taking it to 3 sets. But it's hard not to envision Feli winning.

What Feli does on clay, especially RG clay, should not be used as an example for his form.

Re: Queen's:R2: Dimitrov vs. Lopez

HAd to vote for logic, hence Lalo in 2, though the Spaniard is perhaps one of the best possible draws for Grigor, considering the form and overall class of the seeded players right now.

It's been a while since Grigor doesn't have to play one of the first 3 seeded in his first match and after the first set against Bogo where he had to adjust a bit with the surface, he might be a dangerous oponent for Lopez.

The Spaniard's been underperforming in Queen's for 3 consecutive years, losing in first round to nonames pretty much, before winning a couple of rounds last year.

His game might look suited for grass, but imho he's best on hard, not that much on grass.

His lefty big serve can be a big advantage, though it also depends on the day, coz he's been doing some bad serving performances as well + the pretty much total lack of a BH won't help much, if Grisho sets the tactics right with his Aussie helper and aproaches the net more often.

Lalo likes to chip and charge but against a risky, though effective second serve, he might get himself into rallies, which isn't where he feels comfortable.

Overall, a solid, even average performance from the Spaniard should be enough for a win, though a mediocre one might get him in trouble.

Best of luck to Grisho and let's hope he'll amaze the world again after over a year of slumps
