R2: Wawrinka backhands future GOAT Dimitrov 7:5 6:3 6:3

Some great backhands from both. Dimitrov needs a better coach if he wants to rise to the top. The kid seems clueless and ill-tempered at times. He HAS potential to be a top player and a marketing bonanza with his looks.

To the future!

Nishikori, Berankis, Raonic, Kuznetsov, Dimitrov, Coric

Wawa played awful today

Dimitrov played ok but too many UEs, especially off the return

Waw awful and still winning so easy against a dangerous opponent? That's a good sign!

Too many unforced errors from Grig. Wawa just did enough to win.

Really easy for Wawa from the second set onwards, showed up Dimitrov somewhat.

Its time for Mr. Dimitrov to run afoul of a bitter and adamantly rigid reality and to get back to gruelling work if his intentions are to be competitive among inform Top50 contenders.

Top 90 from Monday for Grigor and I think he can be very happy with this result

I am happy with Dimi's performance. Wawrinka is more experienced and that made the difference. I am sure Grigor will keep playing great and will record some very well performances in the next months.

GL to Stan in his next matches.

Disappointing performance to be honest. Was just self imploding after he lost the first set

The BIGGEST (borderline delusional) fan of players on General Message Board according to Forehander:

Wawrinka was not a good draw, he has not lost a single match since the beginning of the year, and not many sets i think (?).
