Grigor Dimitrov (BUL) vs Mikhail Kukushkin (KAZ)

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

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.

Good practice sessions for Grigor in Miami. With GaŽl Monfils yesterday and Andy Murray today.

Grigor will play first match tomorrow VS Kukushkin on Miami's first round.

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.

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.

He's off to a great start. 2-0 up in 2nd set. I hope he can keep this up.
