Why are you still so sour over the Tokyo match?

Good win for Grigor nevertheless.

Awesome, Grisha Solid on serve, very few UEs. But to be honest, Milos was well below par today.

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!

Wow, what a performance by Grigor, dominating majority of the ground points. Raonic was beaten, plain and square.

Milos serve wasn't on today, not a huge surprise for a 1st match.

Great performance from Grigor. Wanted to stay up for Lleyton's match as well but I'm too tired now.

Dynamitrov also won 100 percent of first serves. Maybe this will finally be his breakthrough year.

Don't forget about the loss at Barcelona. Milos dismantled Murray there just as badly, he's never quite gotten over those two losses it seems.

Anyway, this kind of loss is what happens when Milos doesn't serve well. Dimitrov played well, though, he looks much improved this year.

Milos would have had a far better chance at defending his points if he returned to Chennai, but I get that his focus is on the AO.

Where have you been? I dislike servebots generally, and Milos is in particular is overrated among them.

But great, you whined about that innocuous alliterative title and they changed it.

Yeah, agreed. You don't want to get too up-in-arms about the first match of the year for Raonic. Still, a cause to celebrate for Dimitrov fans. He looked electric at times... with a great serve and the requisite portion of gonzo shots during the rallies.

I imagine some choice quotes are going to get dug up from the WWW thread for this match...
