WWW Shanghai R2 Djokovic - Dimitrov

WWW?

Well, looks like the WWW question is pretty clear, yet in what fashion?

IMO Grigor will take 5 to 7 games, which could be relatively acceptable, considering the bad match-up...

Djoker in 3. He'll drop his customary middle set tie-break before winning. 6-2 6-7(4) 6-2.

Re: WWW Shanghai R2 Djokovic - Dimitrov

First tight set till Nole will find the rhytm and play in one gate later. Something like 7-5, 6-1.

Gasquet is next №1

Re: WWW Shanghai R2 Djokovic - Dimitrov

It won't be pretty but it will be tasty for Dimiboy. Djoko with at least one piece of French cuisine, if not two. 4 games is my optimistic realistic expectation .

Re: WWW Shanghai R2 Djokovic - Dimitrov

6-3, 6-3

It won't happen, but this place would go apeshit if Dimitrov won.

You can count on me to deliver (but not too much until Roger secures Shanghai). Having said that, Dimitrov's main "weapons" (or at least they're supposed to be) are the FH and the serve.

If he serves well, Djokovic will still break him (I think) but if he serves poorly, it's GG pretty much. His FH is good when he has time but Djokovic won't give him time and I seriously see him struggling to win games if Djoko starts well and/or he gets off to a slow start. It'd still be interesting to see (I won't be able to) how he fares but I really expect a routine win bordering on annihilation.

For sure, but no big deal, this time last year Novak didn't even play tennis. A loss here could bring him to Basel perhaps, that would spice things up

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”
