He was really sad, any one have some encouraging lines to make him feel better?

I'm looking forward to his next matches. Loss, disappointment, frustration, etc are just experience he needs to grow up into. Welcome to the big-boy tour.

Anyway, after one year of being a fan, I'm happy seeing him improving gradually although it may not meet with his (young, rushing mind) expectation. He'd better take his time, ignoring peers or pressure to become somebody. Toughen up and learn to tell others who fill his head with negativity to STFU.

Highlight were the 3 double faults that led to the rebreak in the 2nd set. Even MacNamara let hang his head down. That makes me worry. I have the feeling that they don't know what to do to turn this around. Roddick was very beatable but grigor was able to make so many UE that he lost this match. This is just a mental problem but what to do? I'm a bit worried, really...

oh poor kid

please, next time you talk to him, tell him we are still behind and support him . It must have been very frustrating for Grigor, though, much more than we are! Poor kid really cares about that loses. He needs to keep playing, to not gave up next matches, to still think he is good enough to keep with the top players.
Next year will be better than this one, I promise .
Make him promise you he will give his best and fight till the end. That's all we need to see at this stage - that he is fighting. even when results are missing.
I was very very dissapointed when he just gave up and stop playing earlier this summer and felt much better now when saw him fighting till the end, even though this loss was very frustrating.

Sooner or later it will turn arround!

I wonder how doeas it feel to be Peter Macnamara these days. not easy, I guess.

I got the feeling he needs someone to encourage him mentaly. PMac is doing a great job with him, but he needs someone else to add into his team. It is not a shot or muscle what he is mssing. It is in his head the problem.

Well, I must say that he definitely seemed to be the more talented player with much more variety. His topspin backhand looked great, however, his slice bh was very inconsistent, especially the first set. Great thing to see was that he overcame that weakness and had a chance to pull off the upset. It seemed that he was not willing to take calculated risks and go for his shots when they were there at the end of the second set. You could tell that Roddick was content with keeping the ball in play and waiting for Grigor to commit an unforced error. In the end, Grigor needs to believe that his opponent has no business being on the same court with him, get that first serve in play on the big points, and continue to improve on the return. I can see tremendous progress from earlier this summer - he will get over the hump pretty soon. Now what to do about his shoes...he was sliding all over the place

Back from my 2 month ban.
Been followed Grisho and I think he finally plays the way he should have played earlier this year. Only problem is still the weak mental. Some points to defend next week from a ch, but still should finish the year in top 60 imo.

Paparazzi, haha, that must be me lol. Unfortunately I missed his actions in Shanghai cuz I'm already in Ecuador now for working purpose...But I'm so gonna see him again next yr in Beijing!!!

There is a twitter account with no tweets so probably fake. And there is a officially lokking fb account but as I heard it is also fake and btw there are only comments from "him" (or the person who faked the account) once a month or so...

Hey guys!

Good to see Grisho playing better recently! In January and February, we were saying it's 50/50 against players ranked lower than 80, and now most people are agreeing that he has good chances against players like Roddick. He's turning into one of those dangerous players that opponents don't want to see in there sections of the draw, and from what i can see, working on the parts of his game that need improving. Maybe 2011 wasn't the break-out year many of us had hoped, but with all the experiences he has had this year, he has a great ATP-level foundation to build on for 2012 for sure.

Hope all you guys are doing well! For me, i am going to sit down and watch some highlights of the Roddick match on youtube on my day off work =D

Just forget what happened in Shanghai, I am still very confident with Grisho in Stockholm especially Soderling and Monfils withdraw. That's a good chance~ C'mon Grisho!!!!

It's really great chance but officially Monfils hasn't withdrawn.. Only Soderling and Florian Mayer.
No matter, Grisho's chances depends of the draw of course but hope the best!!

Grigor plays Ryan Sweeting R1 in Stokholm. Winner of this match will play Chela.
Not a bad draw. I hope he win his match. He has a lot of points to defend.

It seems I read too many rumor He's the top seed in Stockholm! And Grisho will meet Ryan Sweeting at the first round. Not a easy draw but big chance!!! C'mon Grisho
