Indian Wells R2:  Ferrer def. Dimitrov 6-2 6-2
Dimitrov's smash into the net to go down a double break in the 2nd set and on match point where he dumped an easy volley/smash into the net after playing a great point to get into a winning position, summed up this match from his perspective. Dreadful doesn't really describe his level of play. Extremely poor performance.
Grigor had two break points in his first return game of the match, which he squandered with errors. From there he got broken immediately at 1 all, which was the start of three straight breaks, which were mostly lost with errors from both. Predictably, Ferrer started to find the range of his game from *3-2 in the first set, and cut down on his mistakes. Grigor, however, never did and continued making terrible easy errors, continued serving horribly, returning terribly, and completely fell apart in the second set. Grigor's got extremely clumsy movement; he hit some flashy winners from defensive positions, but in general Ferrer found it very easy to move Dimitrov out of position with a couple angled forehand and win points. David didn't serve that well nor really got out of 3rd gear, but it wasn't necessary.
Dimitrov has such a long way to go to be competitive at this level. He can play some good points and show his talent at times, but can't string anything together. Comfortable win in the end for David. Mediocre match from his perspective but a win is a win.
