Good luck Grigor! Come on!!!

Bulgaria
01-11-2011, 02:22 PM
Wish him all the best and let's hope that he will be one of the 16 players qualified for the MD.

Next days will be very interesting. By the way they give it a lot of rain for wednesday, thursday and friday. They could play indoors which is not very good.

Not bad draw for Grigor. But Koubek is a dangerous player. Anyway, good luck Grisha! COME ON!

I hope so. Viola is a claycourter. I expect 7-6 6-3 win for Grigoat. El Amrani is a bit more difficult, but I expect a victory, again. Hope these 2 matches will be enough for Grisha to find his game, because he won't have an easy QR3 match.

im sure grigor will win im just not sure it'll be easy or even in straight sets

the only real one im unsure of is the final against koubek/schoorel

either one will be tough..like i said earlier he's just lucky he doesnt have to deal with both

I think this is a decent draw for him, because he could draw Bozoljac, Raonic, Massu, Korolev/Dancevic, Mahut, Janowicz and Zemlja. It's good draw, but this Schoorel like you say and experienced Koubek might ruin our plans. Of course right now we know that Dimitrov is in very good shape. Only 4 aces, but 93% pts won on 1st serve.

misty1
01-12-2011, 08:23 PM
honestly, in the overall scheme this shows us nothing because..this is an expected scoreline against who his opponent was.

..maybe not the exact score but it was supposed to be easy is what im trying to say

In R1 Gimeno-Traver, Stepanek, Cilic, Anderson, Phau, qualifier, Istomin, Melzer, Baghdatis, Berdych, Gasquet, Almagro, Paire, Dabul or Golubev?
I think he will play with Golubev because Golubev is playing with my favourites always. :D

Berdych i think don't bad. I saw his last match and he was very terrible. He played the worst match in his carrier.

I'm afraid Almagro, Stepanek, Baghdatis and Melzer.

Yes, I would like to Paire, Phau, Dabul or Q too. :D And Gimeno-Traver or Golubev.

It was a huge win, and I'm hearing a lot that he just completed dominated the match. Not that it hasn't been done before to Golubev, who really plays a winner or loser type of game, but I'm going to say that Dimitrov gets AT LEAST a set off Wawrinka, but I've got a feeling it's going to be a 5 set thriller :)

Good luck against Stan tomorrow, Dimi. If you pull this win off, you're officially playing with the big boys in 2011. :yeah:

Grigor is still going to play with the big boys this year. He totally dominated Golubev, there was really no contest there - not for more than 10 points anyway:worship: Some of the people who saw him for the first time were truly in awe. You could inadvertently hear exclamations like "Did you see that backhand????!!! Did you see that?!" or "Unbelievable! His forehand is exactly like Federer's.", etc. Grigor became a revelation for quite a few people that afternoon.

In the match with Wawrinka, he had a good start, but his inexperience on "the big stage" showed later on in double faults at the wrong moment. There are a few things that his coach will no doubt take from the match and work on and then we'll see another stage of improvement in Grigor's game and mental toughness and consistency.

All in all, though, he played some brilliant points, showed great versatility and a lot of his strokes would have ended up winners if he was not playing such a strong and determined opponent. We saw some lovely rallies. Too bad Stan W. has such a great second serve too... Let's not forget Wawrinka won Chennai just before AO. Just watching the Wawrinka - Monfils match now and it looks like Monfils will not do much better than Grigor with all his experience and athleticism. That says a lot.

It is a very promising start from Grigor, though. He definitely belongs in the Top 100 and we'll see more of him in the ATP tournaments this year.

Great performance at the Australian Open, Grigor, and keep us happy in 2011!! :wavey::bounce::bounce::bounce:
