R2: Wawrinka backhands future GOAT Dimitrov 7:5 6:3 6:3

01-19-2011, 08:23 AM
Some great backhands from both. Dimitrov needs a better coach if he wants to rise to the top. The kid seems clueless and ill-tempered at times. He HAS potential to be a top player and a marketing bonanza with his looks. :bounce:

poor effort by grigor, very disappointing..

01-19-2011, 08:24 AM
Wawa played awful today :o

Dimitrov played ok but too many UEs, especially off the return

Waw awful and still winning so easy against a dangerous opponent? That's a good sign!

01-19-2011, 08:27 AM
Too many unforced errors from Grig. Wawa just did enough to win.

01-19-2011, 08:28 AM
Really easy for Wawa from the second set onwards, showed up Dimitrov somewhat.

01-19-2011, 08:28 AM
Its time for Mr. Dimitrov to run afoul of a bitter and adamantly rigid reality and to get back to gruelling work if his intentions are to be competitive among inform Top50 contenders.

01-19-2011, 08:29 AM
average day at the office for Stan :yeah:

01-19-2011, 08:29 AM
Top 90 from Monday for Grigor and I think he can be very happy with this result

01-19-2011, 08:30 AM
Awful s**t from Dimitrov.

01-19-2011, 08:33 AM
I am happy with Dimi's performance. Wawrinka is more experienced and that made the difference. I am sure Grigor will keep playing great and will record some very well performances in the next months.

GL to Stan in his next matches. :wavey:

01-19-2011, 08:48 AM
Wawa just too solid for bulgarian GOAT:bowdown:

01-19-2011, 08:55 AM
Disappointing performance to be honest. Was just self imploding after he lost the first set

01-19-2011, 09:26 AM
Wawrinka was not a good draw, he has not lost a single match since the beginning of the year, and not many sets i think (?).

01-19-2011, 10:10 AM
so good to see the man winning easily even on a bad day. keep it up!

01-19-2011, 11:01 AM
good for the game.

01-19-2011, 11:16 AM
that's about dimitrov. cilic had great results behind him at the dimitrov's age.

01-19-2011, 12:46 PM
Time Is Running Out For People To Realise Grigor Dimitrov Is Not The World Beater They Claim Him To Be.

01-19-2011, 01:31 PM
Grigor must improving very much, but he wasn't so bad today. Top 90 is good at 19 years. :D

01-19-2011, 01:38 PM
A Grigor Dimitrov moment!


01-19-2011, 01:39 PM
A bit disappointing, thought he'd put up more of a fight

01-19-2011, 01:43 PM
A Grigor Dimitrov moment!

A Grigor Dimitrov moment!

:lol: Ouch.

A Grigor Dimitrov moment!

01-19-2011, 02:24 PM
I can't imagine what would have happened had tennis forums been dime a dozen during the period Fed was getting his head and game together. The moments of doubt when those of us who were following him in the 1998-2003 period would have been magnified beyond belief by "Dimitrov will never cut it" type of posters :(

Result seems about right. what did everyone expect here?

Grigor's still on the correct path toward success, no need for his fans to worry.

Result seems about right. what did everyone expect here?

Anything that would qualify as less of a routine?

01-19-2011, 03:04 PM
did he push an umpire again after the match just because he lost?

01-19-2011, 03:18 PM
so much for the future goat aka umpire molester

Guess he could have won a set.. we might be expecting too much of him to compete well against an established top 20 player like Wawa though. Guy still needs a couple years to mature, and if even then he's losing in this fashion then there will be some concerns. Not going with the hype of him being a multiple slam winner in the future or anything, but this match really doesn't prove anything about the potential of his career.

01-19-2011, 03:32 PM
No, I don't think it says anything whatsoever about his prospects either, just that given his good form, I expected he'd at least play some closer sets, if not snatch some. Will be good to see him on ATP tour more now that he's cracked top 100.

01-19-2011, 03:35 PM
You SUCK Grigor!

01-19-2011, 03:55 PM
Could somebody explain me why they call him "GOAT"?:)

01-19-2011, 05:31 PM
He is not in shape, maybe because he didn't know if he had play qualies or will enter directly MD. Some people this was the reason of Helsinki scandal. We should be satisfied of his performance. Next stop maybe is Helibronn challenger or qualies for Rotterdam.

Start da Game
01-19-2011, 05:39 PM

01-19-2011, 06:10 PM
Future GOAT? Don't make me laugh

01-19-2011, 06:48 PM

Sicko! :lol:

01-19-2011, 10:14 PM
starting to enjoy stanley's work... forced The Tradesman into tanking at the US Open... putting a bun in the oven, doing a runner and subsequently winning a title... next you you know he's beating up on FutureGOAT's...

what a f***ing playa...

01-19-2011, 11:57 PM
when Stani came back he realised the gas vapours had ignited and made his engine go putt putt.
