Re: WWW: Brisbane R1 - Baker v. Dimitrov

winner gets Milos, so hopefully Dimitrov wins, just so their fans can see how much better Milos is once again. It's fun seeing them angry, haven't seen many servebot comments for a couple months, I'm ready for more

Re: WWW: Brisbane R1 - Baker v. Dimitrov

gotta think Dimitrov is more solid all around player and Baker was playing pretty poorly end of last season so :0 granted Bryan did say in an interview that he intended to train hard and come back strong in 2013 energy wise (explained that he had ran out of batteries after Wimbledon time period)

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Ernest Gulbis <3

------------------------ <3 Richard Gasquet <3

Re: WWW: Brisbane R1 - Baker v. Dimitrov

This should be a great match, can't wait.
I like both players, but I'll be rooting for Brian here as he needs the win more.

"Cry-baby Canadians" whining about how unpopular Milos is always make me laugh.

It's always difficult to predict how players will perform after the off-season but Dimitrov is the better player and should beat Baker in straight sets.

Re: WWW: Brisbane R1 - Baker v. Dimitrov

Normally should be a 7-6 6-4 kind of win for Dimitrov.

Anything else would be a surprise.

I'm eager to see if the new Swedish academy has anykind of effect on Dimitrov's game.

Re: WWW: Brisbane R1 - Baker v. Dimitrov

actually think brian would be a tougher match for milos simply because he's got the much better return. Grigor's return wont allow him to do much on milos's serve and his own serve is not reliable enough to hold up and allow him to win the probable tiebreakers.

that being said im thinking grigor will win this

Dimitrov must take this in straights and make an early statement of intent.
