RG R3: [20] PCB def. [11] Dimitrov 7-5 6-3 6-4

As expected Dimitrov was losing against the first semi-decent opponent at RG, he was just lucky to face two semi-retired old men in the first two rounds. That said, Busta is more than a semi-decent opponent, was playing extremely well today and it's no coincidence that he's the #10 in the race. Simply the better claycourter, no chance for Dimitrov after PCBs poor start.

Should beat Botnic as well now.

A real head-scratcher, this one.

Dimitrov did good enough to end his losing streak. Not disappointed tbh.

He's not playing proper clay court tennis, he should do much better on grass.

We'll see. PCB is playing better than ever. Can really beat Raonic tbh.

Dimitrov's backhand was a liability today

OOF.

Oh well, Dimi was having a Come to Jesus moment getting to RD3 here in Paris at all.

On to the lawns!

and potentially - 885 rally shots in..

PCB went full Muzza vs Fed back in the day mode. Was fast and solid enough, as well as motivated enough to stay on this path for long enough lengths and it paid off.

Was far from anything close to pleasant to watch.

Re: RG R3: PCB defeats Dimitrov 7-5 6-3 6-4

Mental midgetry aside, as it is somewhat a consequence from the following, why exactly does Grigor think that standing further back than his opponent during rallies will be beneficial in some way?

Quite astonishing logic or lack thereof, especially having in mind the way the relevant example of how Federer has been playing lately and the results he has been getting.

Funny stuff.
