A nice battle of youngsters. I'm quite sure this will go to 5 sets, I say Stebe wins in 5 :)

If Dimitrov is aggressive I think he'll take this, really just needs to get past Stebe's consistency off the baseline. If he doesn't play aggressive then it'll play into Stebe's hands and I think he'll win.

Just going to go with Dimitrov in 5, doubt he won't play aggressive.

I don't know this Stebe guy, first time heard of him yesterday but he will probably win.

Dimitrov will surely play agressive, he's got no other way of playing. How effective that would be I don't know.
The only time these two played each other was on clay and Dimitrov won 6-3 6-3.

I am going with Dimitrov in 3 or 4.

Probably Stebe, but Grigor needs to win this match. Grigor needs the points now as he's defending a lot in the not too distant future. With that said, gotta say Stebe in 4 sets.

Stebe is in good form and quickly rising in the ranks.
Hard to see him losing this match

Dimitrov will win, but the Stebe bandwagon is amusing.

ohhh nooooo, I really wanted to see a Harrison - Dimitrov match. And it almost happened. I think Dimitrov will win this in 3. Harrison would have been a bigger problem.

I don't know about Pironkova cause i refuse to see WTA, but about Dimirov, that's the only place where he can be a star: in tennis forums...

dimitrov in 3. If he could beat him on clay he surely can beat him on grass. Buy then again it is Dimitrov you never know with him :)

I just checked Stabe's results for the year so far, and just don't see on what basis people think (proper word should be 'wish') that he will win this match. The highest ranked player he has beaten is Kudriatsev(132) on hard. And his grass results are not that impressive either.

Look it up again, mate. He's defeated Go Soeda (109 at that time) at Kyoto (Japan), Luckas Lacko (119 at that time) at Guangzhou und was the only one to take a set off Kohli at Halle last week, which is played on grass of course.
And Dimitrov gets a bit too much hype I think. I was live at his match vs Baghdatis at Munich, where he really played great tennis from the end of the 2nd set, but he just isn't consistent enough.
So I think this match is very open and I've already said it'll go to five with Stebe winning in the end.

Sorry my bad. I didnt see those wins.
But wow, he took a set of Kohli :worship:, so he is the new dark horse at Wimbledon?
No disrespect for your opinion but I think it will be straight sets for Grigor ;)

Yeah I think it was worth mentioning he took a set off Kohli because Kohli was the eventual winner and didn't lose another set at Halle (defeating Dolgo, Hewitt, Monfils and Petzschner) ;)

But yeah then we have different oppinions, I hope mine will become the right one ;) We'll know that on Tuesday evening probably (if it doesn't rain that much).

I do. Two guys competing who were born 90>. I think Dimitrov will finish this in this 3rd set.
