Excellent to see.

I liked Berankis as a junior player but didn't expect him to improve his serve to the degree that he has.

It's curious that he's thriving on grass right now while Dimitrov is flaming out, but they're maturing differently (Berankis is a little older), and Berankis has had the pleasure of flying under the radar while Dimitrov has had all sort of hype and pressure put on his shoulders.

it's not that he was flying "under the radar", but dude was very frequently hampered by injuries last year, when he was ranked in 400's at this time of the year...his talent and work ethic were never questioned, and you don't become a Junior Nr.1 by being a bad player

I agree with all you're saying, but Berankis hasn't had had to deal with -- he's avoided -- something like all the nonsense around Dimitrov. He just started playing Challengers and got (or didn't get) results. His time at main tour events hasn't gotten the kind of coverage that Dimitrov's did.
