Gstaad R2: Dimitrov beats Brown 7-6(3), 3-6, 6-2

Close, back-and-forth match with Dimitrov edging it.

Grisha played ok in the first two sets but he was not really there mentally. Poor concentration cost him the second set. Grisha then won the first 12 points of the third set, breaking Brown's first service game, and never relinquished his lead.

Two amazing players to watch, Dimitrov is just better but Brown can do some damage at USO i think

Brown was abysmal any time he got close on Dimitrov's service games in the first set, couldn't get the return in play and the few times he got it back in, it was mid- court, that killed his chances.

Very boring match.

Only the 3rd set and tie break showed Grigor at the needed level. Needs to maintain the kind of game he played in those moments if he wants to win a title.

Otherwise good win, especially on his service games in the first two sets Brown was invincible, played some fantastic dropshots and volleys but after the second set his concentration lapsed and allowed Dimitrov to boss him around.

Once again Grigor saved his best tennis for the 3rd set. Didn't serve well in the 2nd set but pulled himself together to take an early break in the 3rd. It's good to see how much he has improved mentally over the last few months.

He's through to another QF and I fancy his chances against Kubot.

Dimitrov has a chance to take this 250.

Dimi needs to keep it up. The final shot on match point was marvelous.

Phew, Grigor got me worried for a little bit

A great chance for another SF appearance! Good luck, Grisha

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!

Dimitrov rises. With this sort of form it shouldn't be too long before he wins his first ATP title.

Watching these 2 clay GOATS duke it out must have been something special. They should both do OK during the USO series.
