[7] Tomas Berdych (CZE) vs bye
Nicolas Mahut (FRA) vs [WC] Fernando Gonzalez (CHI)
Grigor Dimitrov (BUL) vs Mikhail Kukushkin (KAZ)
[29] Juan Ignacio Chela (ARG) vs bye

I think there will be a lot of new posts so we need a new thread:cool:

Pretty good draw...Grisho must find his form....PLSSSSSSSS

The draw is really nice for someone with his ranking! I really hope he takes advantage and reaches R3. That won't be easy, though.
Good luck!

Really, Grigor has to make the third round here. It will be hard to do, because I would back Chela over him should they play, but it's the type of draw a player like Grigor has to take advantage of. Hopefully he will do so.

Not a bad draw although Kukushkin can be unpredictable. If he finds his form though, Grigor should win it and I would take him over Chela.

If kukushkin is in the kind of form that took him deep at the australian open it could be tough for him. However this is a fantastic oppertunity for a third round at a masters and he NEEDS to take it.

at some point he needs to actually to start doing something with these draws

RandyE
03-20-2012, 12:20 AM
It seems that everyone's in agreement that R3 is definitely a possibility. Hopefully his serve will carry him there. It's a pretty slow hard court, so it would not be surprising if he faultered earlier. Chela will be tough and a seasoned veteran - as long as he can keep the ball on his backhand side he should be alright. I would definitely like to see him take on Berdych again...a little payback for the Hopman Cup would be in order. Step 1 however, is beating Kukushkin.

Finally a good draw for Grigor! This is his biggest chance of getting a 3rd round in a masters he will ever get. If he doesn't take it I really start to doubt him. His play in IW will not do the job, so he has to raise his game substantially.

Hypnotize
03-21-2012, 11:09 AM
He's playing first on court 7 at 11am Miami time, that's 3pm UK time. Kukushkin beat Monfils and Troicki at the AO this year so he's no pushover but Grigor can definitely win this. He just needs to serve well and be aggressive.

Here you are the stats:



If I remember he played against Chela and beat him easly.

He defeated Chela in 3 sets: 6-2 5-7 6-1 was a bit of a mess in the second set, but when he got his head back in the 3rd got control over the match and took quickly the 3rd set. That was at Stockholm - fast indoor hard court, though. Grisho played really well then, made some 40/15 W/UEs.

So - I came back of plaing tenns only few than 2 years ago after a long stop and slowly I started knowing the new players (my favorite were Schtich and Sampras) and of cource I couldn't chose other than Federer. (HERE (http://www.menstennisforums.com/showpost.php?p=11780613&postcount=326) if you aren't borried can read more about my tennis and the passion about all play it, after coming back).
I didn't know him when one day at the start of 2011 one guy in the tennis club told me abount him.
I knew that he played against Wawrinka at the AO and I watched the match in srteaming and I started to cheer for his teqnique hoping he would become more consistent. After he won a tough matches on the clay - I was ill and couldn't see him.
My favorite match was against Tsonga at Wimbledon and the 4th set was amazing.
In that moment I realized Grigor was ready and I was very interested in Tsonga's play style and he took a little piece of my heart as well.
Unfortunately he gave his best 2 matches after defeating Grigor.

So happy Grigor won. Before going to the bed he had won the 1st set.
This morning I saw he lot the 2ond.
Now be free and beat Berdych - tou can!!!
The important is to change him the rhythm with many slice BH.
Thomas likes to lean on the ball and without rhythm he has some problem.
Grigor has also to move him large and long-short the court.

@Fed_BG - so you were awake until Grisho won?...Nice! I did this only few times.

Grigor Dimitrov @ Facebook
Thank you guys for your nice messages. It was a very tough match today but I tried my best and I am very happy about my win. Wanted to thank to all the supporters that made it to the match today and everyone else who watched on TV or online :)


:awww:

awww he thought we were watching him

absolutely UNBELIEVABLE match

Chela :worship:

:worship::worship:Dimitrov:worship::worship:

the 3rd set was simply shocking. Amazing tennis from both. Multiple points could be considered best of the whole tournament.

he was, in fact, down 4-2. He got broken to open the third. However, from then on he became Federer 2.0. (Like he was in the 1st set before a mental walkabout in the 2nd).

:fiery: no stream and could not see him playing like that, too bad, looked so entertaining


Good luck against Berdych :hug: Grisho :hug:!

If by some miracle he wins this match we will officially appoint chantelle :worship: for thread opener at this forum :p

@Mongoose - where did you watch Grigor? - Live or some TV channel?

I'm sorry but I'm a little bit severe. If he playes not with the top players, and you lose your serve, they give you some chance and you can re-enter.
If you do it againt on Berdych you lose the set and if he gives you a chance to come back or saves himself with a good serve or you having more pressure are going to reduce the possibility of braking him back.

@Mongoose - where did you watch Grigor? - Live or some TV channel?

I'm sorry but I'm a little bit severe. If he playes not with the top players, and you lose your serve, they give you some chance and you can re-enter.
If you do it againt on Berdych you lose the set and if he gives you a chance to come back or saves himself with a good serve or you having more pressure are going to reduce the possibility of braking him back.

Mongoose posted this comment at GM. He/she was at the match, on the court.

True that, to beat Berdych you need a good serve or excellent returns to get more chances. Grigor isn't the best receiver on tour so hopefully he will serve better.

Hey guys, Grigor plays the first match on stadium court tomorrow at 11am local time, which i think is 4pm GMT.

In the past he has always played his bet tennis on the big stadium courts, so lets hope for the same again tomorrow :D

Slow start to this set. Looks very windy though, maybe a slight advantage for Grigor, Berdych plays very hard and flat and the wind can mess with the timing on those kind of ground strokes.

Great match for Grigor - it looked like Berdych got pretty tense late in the match. Hopefully he can put it all together against Tipsarevic. He's played him twice, so he should be familiar with Janko's game. As long as he can hold serve, he'll have a chance. Excellent Result - he was really excited afterwards.

from twitter:

OnTheGoTennis ‏ @onthegotennis

I asked Grigor about his friendship with Serena in his interview. He turned red and said, "What do you want to know?" lol

OnTheGoTennis ‏ @onthegotennis

He said that they were good friends, and that she came down and congratulated him after the match
