He will be the 7th seed actually:
1 Ferrer, David (6)
2 Berdych, Tomas (7)
3 Almagro, Nicolas (11)
4 Ramos, Albert (43)
5 Nieminen, Jarkko (44)
6 Kukushkin, Mikhail (52)
7 Dimitrov, Grigor (69)
8 Volandri, Filippo (79)

The 3 WC's are for Robredo (266), Ryderstedt (327) & Lindell (432), so he will stay 7th seed if no one withdraws

He's on the entry list for Bastad on 09/07/12. He's 9th on the seeding list and if Monfils withdraws, he will go up to 8th. It should be a good chance to get some points and match practice before the Olympics even though it's a clay court event. The only grass event that week is Newport which is THE WORST tournament on the the tour and the crappy courts there would only mess up his game. He never looked like he wanted to be there last year.
Last year Newport was at the same time as Bulgaria's Davis cup relegation play-off with Cyprus and I think the Mouratoglou academy made him play Newport - maybe because of the fact that there was only Isner there and he can get some easy points. I'm sure that he wanted to play for Bulgaria and help the team to stay in the 2nd zone, but maybe he didn't had the word ... Maybe that was the reason he wasn't so motivated and lost early .. I don't know. That's just my thoughts I think now he has to go to Sweden and start practicing on the clay and not to sit at Wimbledon and watch Serena's matches. He will probably be seeded, so he won't face any top player at least until the QF, so he has a good chance of winning some points.

Me and chantelle from here randomly sat next to each other as well, which was pretty funny. We went to see him after the match and both got photos Great day overall
Sorry I missed you guys. Did you run off the court and catch him as he was leaving? I would have liked to have done that but my main priority after the match was finding a toilet lol.

I'm done watching, he's gonna lose, and he's heading to be another wasted talent. Just look at that uninspired face, he doesn't even realize he's been letting people down.

I realise you're just a whiny teenager but that shouldn't stop you being embarrassed by these posts.

Apart from the fact this was an illness he had no control of, even if he did play badly, he's not letting anyone down. He's not playing for you or anyone else on here, only himself. As fans we can admire his talent, work ethic or character but at the end of the day, he doesn't owe anyone anything. If you are not happy with the work he puts in, go find someone else to support but childish remarks like,"you can find his name in the dictionary right under the word useless" should be posted on the main forum, not here.

How did you get a flu in two day!!!!
A flu bug can come from nowhere and wipe out the strongest man. It's bad enough for a normal person but when you are a top-level athlete, running around a court and facing 120+mph serves, it's going to have a massive effect on you. It's unfortunate he had to retire but it's not a reflection on him as a player or a person that he did so, it's just bad luck. Anyone who watched the Anderson match would see how committed and mentally strong he was so he wouldn't have made this decision unless it was absolutely necessary.

Like everyone else on here, I'm disappointed this happened, especially as he was playing so well at Queens and in R1 but we just have to look forward to the Olympics. I really hope he sees this as an opportunity missed and goes into that tournament extra motivated to play his best tennis and do well.

Hi Piggy. I was actually behind the baseline, not the service line as I said in an earlier post (I was pretty tired when I wrote that). I was just below the TV cameras with some Bulgarians. It was a perfect seat and there was no way I was leaving it until the end of Grigor's match. I'm glad a few of us got to watch him play and cheer him on.

Re: Grigor on Grass: 2012

Saw on twitter that he went practicing there at Wimbledon on Friday so he should be fine. Good decision to retire though I can see how pale he was from the stream before he called the doctor. He'd better be healthy for the Olympic. The boy had enough bad luck/health issue already.

I saw him blew his nose on Monday's practice, but he did really well on Tuesday so I thought that was nothing.
He sounded normal on Wednesday when he went to practice(it rained when he practice, drizzle so no one stop practicing) and also the practice on Thursday morning.
It should be rainy on Thursday(according to the forecast) but a sunshine and windy afternoon that day(I sat there from Batoli's match which made me a little sunburned....) It's weird that the seat manager asked all Grigor's team to sit on the other site which is totally under the sunshine(because it didn't happen in Batoli's match, both players' team sat behind the side the players sat) I'm really surprised when Grigor decided to retire but all his team were really tranquil(perhaps they had driven crazy by the sun.) I asked him about his condition when he walked away from the court he said he's ok(So sorry I can't tell him "if you're ok WTF to retire" coz I'm LADY) but he's not willing to talk more. That's all unusual things I thought on Thursday.
