Brisbane SF; Dolgopolov def. Simon 6-3 6-4

Too much flair and variety from Dogs Balls, the slices stuffed Simon's rhythm.

Dolgo's leg should be fine for the AO.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Nice game from Dolgo, the last game was cool. Hopefully the injury is not serious.

He seemed to have a revival right at the end of the match, great forehands to close it out. He would slice until Simon finally went to his forehand, hit it heavily crosscourt, and took control of the points from then on.

If at first you don't succeed, lower your standards.

Dolgo looked good for the most part. Especially in the first set and he was strong in closing the match out. I hope he's fine for the finals and the AO with that leg injury.

Simon was atrocious during the end of that second set.

Simon was diabolical, continuation of his paris masters form here

Dolgo was really sharp first set played great, then tweaked a thigh muscle (?) and that threw him off for a while, but he hung in there and put Simon out of his misery in 2, ending the match with a few good games.

I can't tell if Simon is still in his funk from last season, or Dolgo's game is what upset him so.
Simon likes rhythm and hates slices, so this was never going to be easy for him. Still after rallying early in the second, he just went off the rail in the latter part- going for crazy winners on return when he should have been playing more conservatively and deliberately testing Dolgo's movement after the MTO.

She plays the game where you have to sip a drink every time Dolgo slices.
