AO R1: Dimitrov outlasts Chardy 4-6, 6-3, 3-6, 6-4, 6-4

Pretty entertaining match from two eye candies who were clearly affected by the Melbourne heat. Chardy . This kind of match may be exactly what Grisha needs to help him focus in the second round against Almagro.

Every set took almost exactly the same amount of time. I caught the very end, Dimitrov capitalized on Chardy's inconsistency to finish it.

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

couldn't have ended in a different way then with a DF from Chardy. Well done Grisha but so many BPs wasted!

Well, needed that 2 DFs by Chardy in the last game to pull this off, but this is definitely a confidence boost.

He's not playing as well as a couple weeks back, but well, hopefully it gets better from here on.

Was Chardy up a break in the final set?

Please someone tell the last game is on youtube. I got up to let the cat in and then it was over. I missed the entire final game and I hear there were kisses at the net?! I watch for hours and miss the highlight!!

Good win, Grisha! That backhand needs work though and so does the return of serve.

Almagro next, could be an entertaining match!

RAFAEL NADAL and GRIGOR DIMITROV

Rafa winning at least one slam in 10 consecutive years is the best achievement in Open Era tennis since Laver won all 4 Grand slam tournaments in the same year!


Don't ever underestimate the heart of a champion!

Last game was horrific from Chardy. Grisha missed an overhead in the previous game though.

Yes, there were kisses at the net. Can someone post that awkward Dimitrov-Monfils GIF now?

Really- considering most of the players are from cultures that do this, there needs to be more besos.
