Rotterdam SF: Del Potro def. Dimitrov 6-4 6-4

A pity, far from Grigor's best, too many UEs and unplayable Pony at serve.

Good tournament though for Grigor and a deserved tittle for the Argie

Beautiful shotmaking at times. Del Potro very good on serve, never really got in danger, except for 2 break points in the first set. Dimitrov played well, but two poor games cost him the match. Needs to find a little more consistency to win matches like these.

Disgusting performance from Dimugtrov. Should be fined for lack of effort

Dimitrov can't play big match

GO Roger Federer, Nick Kyrgios, Borna Coric, Vasek Pospisil, Thomaz Bellucci, Kei Nishikori, , Milos Raonic, Jerzy Janowicz, Grigor Dimitrov, Dennis Novikov and Bernard Tomic

Borna Coric will be No 1 by May 2016
Nick Kyrgios will be No 1 by Jan 2016

Re: Rotterdam SF: Del Potro def. Dimitrov 6-4 6-4

Really good match from Juan

Hasn't lost a set all week or had his serve broken (40 consecutive holds, 9 break points served) and is clear favorite for the final tomorrow against Benneteau/Simon, should get his 14th career title and 7th since coming back from surgery. Pretty good start to the year in terms of level of play, hope he keeps it up.

Dimitrov shouldn't be too discouraged, he played a good tournament and even today he didn't play badly at all, just had two loose service games really and generally couldn't defend against Delpo's powerful shots nor match him in that department.

MTF games titles:

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (3): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013 and Geneva 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 1 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers; 7 finals lost

Re: Rotterdam SF: Del Potro def. Dimitrov 6-4 6-4

I can`t explain myself my impression - was it Delpo that great on serve or Dimitrov too weak on return. Just don`t know.

Overall decent match with two bad games from Dimitrov on his serve each set. It was enough for DP, who played far better from baseline than yesterday.

Gasquet is next №1

As expected, Delpo routined him.

Thank you Delpo for the money, I put it will be 6:4, 6:4.

I'm not sure this abbreviation is suitable...

Pity we won't see Federer-Del Potro final. Congrats, Juan Martin, so good to have you back!

No actually many idiots didn't give Delpo a chance at all, and they called themselves tennis experts as well, shame on you, you know who you are, I am actually a fan of Dimitrov as well but can't justify why people didn't give Delpo any chances

JMDP is getting really dangerous indoor. If he raises the bar enough, #5 is within reach.
Dimitrov will be top 20 by clay season if he keeps the rythm, and stays healthy.

Thanks for great Tennis over this past week Juan, I hope you keep it up in the final, 500 valuable points soon to be yours .

Sad to see Grigor's week end like this, without a real fight, but he's got plenty of positives to take from this tournament.

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.
