Too many unforced errors from Grigor, and Bellucci played well. It was one of those matches that could have gone either way. He's definitely on the right track - looking forward to the Olympics!

grisho did quite well today, but we must admit that bellucci was a bit better. another excellent week for grisho though. he's getting closer to his first atp final.

I'm happy with the way he played apart from the tie-breaks where he lost focus and his level dropped. He rallied well against an experienced claycourter, hit some stunning winners and was always looking to be aggressive. His backhand which was too inconsistent in the past has really developed into a big weapon.

His 1st serve needs a bit of fine-tuning for grass as it doesn't seem reliable enough at the moment but he should go to the Olympics with a lot of confidence in his game. He just looks a far more complete player than he did a couple of months ago and it feels like he is learning with each match. I really hope I get to see him next week.

It's all him. There is no one else to blame.

I hope he sees BOTH the positive and negative from this tournament and realize that he clearly has what it takes to be a top player, but he, himself, is the one blocking the entrance to the next level.

He started well but lost his rhythm again, broken back, Belucci won 3 games in a row, Grigor spraying errors and negative body language
I am afraid this will be over very soon

same weakness though, he responses well when a break down. but somehow missed opportunities are distracting him more and so are the rain delays.
So he will either implode and lose the second set easily or will gather himself even more motivated and will play till the last point is called. IMO the longer the rain delay, the better for Grigor.

yes, it is very important on how he will react on losing the 1 set tiebreak and the rain mess!

Disappointing end to a very good set. Some stunning shot-making from Grigor. Hope he pulls it together and raises his game in the 2nd. He can definitely win this match if he regains his focus.

Bad time for a rain delay. He needs to stay focused here.
