Pretty entertaining match from two eye candies who were clearly affected by the Melbourne heat. Chardy :hug:. This kind of match may be exactly what Grisha needs to help him focus in the second round against Almagro.

Every set took almost exactly the same amount of time. I caught the very end, Dimitrov capitalized on Chardy's inconsistency to finish it.

couldn't have ended in a different way then with a DF from Chardy. Well done Grisha but so many BPs wasted!

Well, needed that 2 DFs by Chardy in the last game to pull this off, but this is definitely a confidence boost.

He's not playing as well as a couple weeks back, but well, hopefully it gets better from here on.

Was Chardy up a break in the final set?

Please someone tell the last game is on youtube. I got up to let the cat in and then it was over. I missed the entire final game and I hear there were kisses at the net?! I watch for hours and miss the highlight!!

Yeah. I thought Grisha was a goner.

Good win, Grisha! That backhand needs work though and so does the return of serve.

Almagro next, could be an entertaining match!

Last game was horrific from Chardy. Grisha missed an overhead in the previous game though. :shrug:

Yes, there were kisses at the net. Can someone post that awkward Dimitrov-Monfils GIF now?

I missed the kisses too! I immediately switched to Pico's match.

Really- considering most of the players are from cultures that do this, there needs to be more besos.

now this is how I like it. Dimitrov was outplayed during the most of the match but took the W. That is how you win titles. Another positive out of this match was he got a ton of bad calls fans were getting on his nerve by giving him advices between first and second serve..., but he managed to stay concentrated and got the win against Shardy who hit somthing like 70+ winners
Well done Grisha

Glad he won this. Good opportunity in next round, testing but not beyond him.

Good win for Grigor. It was difficult playing against his buddy but he toughed it out and raised his level when he had to. I hope he can beat Almagro in the next round.

If a match is close, don't bet on Chardy to win it :lol: Good for Dimitrov though. The younger guys really need to start stepping up.

Wow! I'm surprised. I saw the 2nd and 3rd set and Dimitrov looked to be flagging. Well done to him.

Chardy is pretty handsome in real life. Dimitrov acting like a spoilt little princess over every close line call. At one stage he asked for the supervisor but the chair ump pretty much told him to fuck off.

Horrific last game from Jeremy. At least he was involved in a few 10+ shot rallies. Thats pretty good for him.

Easy to be in denial if you weren't at the match. I was 10 metres away from him and his moaning was radiating into my skull.

Totally agree! I can't understand why the Australian TV commentators had a field day with it... how backward can you get... :eek::rolleyes:

From people who actually were at the game - some of the line calls were not close, but blind! At one point there were just too many of these wrong calls and yes, he asked for a supervisor. In some cases one should.

It was an important victory for Dimitrov, he needs to build on this and continue to work on his back hand - it's still a major disadvantage and won't allow him to really beat a lot of players who will exclusivity target it.

After extensive research I found this old picture of Chardy and Dimitrov kissing, but sadly not from this event.
