Well, perhaps that Sharapova is the very passive sort of girl on bed.

The favorite won?

I know people have massively high hopes for Dimi, i like him to but come on at 21 he is yet to reach a masters qf or a GS 3rd round...hardly GOAT-like.

Go Andy!

So very very proud to be a fan of Mr Andy Murray Wimbledon Champion 2013

He also banged Serena Williams. Maybe he thinks that banging WTA champs will make him better player on ATP tour?

definitely. MTF is full of fangirls that have no idea about tennis and only care how cute looks Dimug, the rest of us did now that Dimitrov's level is "?" so far, he lacks of consistense, he could reach a 250 final and two days later lose at AO's R1 easily as he did.

Benneteau was a tough opponenent for a R1, he could have played some easier player and go through second round, bad luck.

Grigor

He better stops using "questions about his relationship with Sharapova" as an excuse. If you can't live with that attention around you, you are a big mental midget. Should of thought about it when he first hooked with Sharapova.

And I don't understand it at all. He should be proud of it and not hiding it and getting mad about it. It's not like it's a crime.
If a journalist asked me: "Mateja, is it true that you are dating a top 10 ATP player?". I would answer: "none of your business, but...yes I am".

Re: Ao R1:J.Benneteau straight-setted G.Dimitrov 6-4 6-2 6-4

Dimitrov was pretty awful in this match and didn't seem to care about losing in the opening round of a slam. It became apparent as the match went on that the only shot he has copied from Federer was the GOAT backhand shank.

Seriously though, the backhand needs to be worked on immensely if he wants to make a jump in the rankings anytime soon. He was pretty much f*cked every time Benne hit the ball hard and deep there. It was also astounding how many routine backhand slices he hit long or halfway up the net.

Life is an orange and you're just a little pip.

Extremely easy victory for Benneteau . I knew it was going to be a tough match but never to see Dimitrov losing in easy straight sets
