Wimbledon R2: Dimitrov d. Simon 6-3 7-6(1) 3-6 6-4

Saw the last two sets. Dimitrov seemed to lose the plot after going up two sets, falling into trying to blow Simon off the court, which never works. Then he tightened things up, went back to a more patient game plan, and came back from a break down in the 4th to win. Hopefully Grigor will start turning his season around; the losing streak ended with his first round here.

I'm happy for Dimitrov. This was a very important win for his confidence.

Johnson/Dimitrov should be a very very telling match. Chance for a big breakthrough for both.

I never like to wish a down man down. So really good to see Dimitrov pull off consecutive wins over a traditionally difficult nemesis. He was down 4-2 in 4th set too!

I broached the possibility after his first round match but now I'll say it again.Don't be at all surprised if Dimitrov beats Fed in the Round of 16 should they meet.He's basically hit his 'rock bottom' and can only go up.He took Fed to 4 sets at the Australian Open and Fed is rusty and ginger moreso than then.. (Mind you Dimitrov was playing better back then too) ... Fed will have been given a cushy diet of Pella,Willis,Evans to cream puff his way into the 4th Round and not be properly tested whilst Dimitrov would've faced a higher calibre of opponents priming him for the match.

This could be the turning point in his career.

Yeah I wouldn't be surprised either. Fed usually glides through the early rounds, but he has been awfully shaky this year, and I think Dimitrov really doesn't have any pressure on him at this point.

2nd sexiest guy on tour loses

3rd sexiest guy on tour wins

(Dimitrov clearly needs it more right now anyway)

Out of curiosity, who is the sexiest? Gulbis?

Gongrats to Dimitrov, I don't really like him but he is too good to spend his career as a journeyman

From what I saw, this is more Simon playing with the same recent extremely poor form that saw him lose to Kyle Edmund, and get bageled by Del Potro. Not so sure that Dimitrov is back yet, but wins like this will certainly help his confidence, which seems to be the biggest challenge he's been facing for the last few months.

I'm still wondering what's happened with Dimitrov's serve. The days he used to serve 30-40 aces over a BO5 are long gone . Simon was easily blocking his 1st serve most of the times.

Good win for Grigor anyway, he's probably going out in the next round though. Wasted too much energy and Johnson is serving amazing. I think Johnson may beat both Dimitrov and Federer.

Just listened on ESPN that Simon is threatening to sue the chair umpire for not stopping the play due to dangerous conditions.
