Re: Wimbledon R2 : Žemlja def. Dimitrov 3-6 7-6(4) 3-6 6-4 11-9
yes, Dimitrov is talented.
But it seems to be not enough.
His Grand Slam results are very poor and Zemlja was better player in all rallies in set 5.
Dimitrov felt two or three times and doesn't want to continue play two times because of slippery surface.
Still, it's his best surface. He has to deal with it.
All in all, very surprising result.
Dimitrov can not win easily against those players around 40-70 in the rankings. And therefore he will always needs a few 4 or 5 setters before a possible second week. Actually, he was never in a second week... still a long way to go. I'm not very convinced.
