WWW RG R1: Chardy v Dimitrov

05-23-2011, 04:53 PM
Given Chardy's play of late, I give Dimitrov a great chance to get out of R1 in this slam. Hopefully he can get the first set under his belt. He seems to have real problems hanging in there once he falls behind.

Want Dimitrov to take this one, and since Chardy's not a mental giant neither, I guess this one will be a 4 or 5 setter.

Was interesting to see Chardy is still the bookies' favourite

Unfortunately for Dimitrov, even if he scrapes past Chardy, it's probably Simon he'll find waiting for him

I would love to see Grigor winning but not sure he can do it

I like how the official RG site lists him as DiMitrov as if he was Italian

A great chance for Dimitrov to reach the second round in a Slam for the 2nd consecutive time. Non seeded players have to play a seed in the first or second round (assuming the seed in their section wins) so Simon really isn't a bad 2nd round draw at all. Especially as he played two very competitive matches against the Frenchman in 2009.

Dimitrov choked against Simon, that's why he lost. After those consecutive losses in spring I think he's now mentally ready to play against good names. Also he plays very well against people he know - Baghdatis, Llodra, Tursunov.
