Gstaad SF: Bellucci d. Dimitrov 7-6, 7-6

Exciting match with some great shot-making and amazing winners from both players. The match was fairly even apart from Bellucci raising his game in both tiebreaks.

Dimitrov should go to the Olympics with a lot of confidence in his game. He's raised his level considerably, he has more patience in rallies and his backhand has developed into a real weapon. He just has to focus more and get more consistency on his 1st serve.

Great match.

Bellucci was tight towards the end of the 2nd tiebreak, would have felt sorry for him if he lost it after some amazing tennis to get to match point.

Dimitrov needs to mature in tie breaks now

Dimitrov is coming along, slowly but surely.

Not often you refer to Bellucci as a mentally strong veteran, but in this case, it is true.

Bellucci played extremely well and the only mental fragility exhibited was on match point where he DFed and hit some silly errors.

Some people mistake the Distant Sun for an eternally raging fireball calling for your demise. Just like aliens from outer space. Aliens from other planets. Aliens in galaxies too far away from your own comprehension. Your demise is ultimately irrelevant and meaningless.

Do not question our motives, our objectives, or our qualities. Question your own place in the universe.

Good to see Bellucci go on a 12-1 run in July and propel himself back into the top 50, up where he belongs.

Shame for Dimitrov but he is still up to about 53 in the new rankings, solid progress lately - keep going grigor!

Great match from Thomaz, offensive tennis, really inspired with the top-spin FH today, punishing Dimitrov with his angles and serve.
