Well, I am happy to eat my words from the other thread. Well done to Dimitrov, who played great tennis. It's just a shame now that the already enormous hype around this guy have expectedly undergone ridiculous levels of inflation after one big win.
Also, I kind of liked the atmosphere out there (Davis Cup-like), but wish it was balanced between the player. To have that type of energy fairly divided in every match (ideal, I know), would be spectacular.
Grigor's play was absolutely sensational. He played so so so so well.
He's been incredibly unlucky so far this year to have played the big 4 on 5 different occasions already. Every time he's pushed them as well. And finally he's managed to get a win! HUGE.
Unlucky? Looks more like a blessing in disguise.
Compare his losses to Djokovic and Murray on slow hards to his recent efforts against Nadal and Djokovic. He's shown great mental improvement in a matter of months.
While some guys are doused with confidence issues and uncertainty from frequent high-level encounters at such a young age (Harrison), others capitalize on them by learning from these opportunities. Dimitrov seems in line with the latter.
