Grigor and Mardy Fish scored an impressive win over Sock & Pospisil, 6-7 7-6 10-8. Fish & Pospisil served for the match in the 2nd so it was a good fightback from Grigor & Mardy.

It's not a good sign if he struggled to beat Pella on a fast hardcourt. He still has the same issue of dropping serve when serving for a set which is something his new coach will need to fix.

Still coachless for now, this GTG guy is just temporary helping him I figure...
Anyway, good to get the win in 2 sets despite the ups and downs. Vs Johnson will be difficult imo

He plays Dolgopolov in R1. Tough match but if the shoulder is fine, he should win it.

The sad thing is problems in the shoulder don't go away so quickly if at all. I still have some doubt he will play at 100% vs Dolgo. it's a 50/50 match.

Wasn’t there an interview with Rasheed (i think) around the end of February where he mentioned that Grigor had been having shoulder pain but they thought it was because of the changes with trying different rackets.
Do you think he has been struggling with the shoulder injury for months?

It would explain why his serve has been so unreliable these last few months and why his shots sometimes seem to lack power especially in longer matches.

Hope it isn’t to serious, he has had some hard months emotionally as well as physically.

1st round vs Dolgopolov tomorrow, 1st match on Banque Nationale court - schedule starting at 12:30 pm

I'm a little worried about his shoulder. It's not the kind of news I wanted to hear coming back at home from vacations.

It's highly likely that its due to the new racket now that i think of it. I read the specifications and the center of gravity is 3 cm towards the racquet not the handle. So if any shoulder problems are present it's certain that the racket would increase them. I know that he had problems with that shoulder for a long time. Not sure if the problems started before or after the change. Also when you play your whole life with one racket your body grows and adapts around it, and when you suddenly change it even the slightest at this high level that is the result.

Into the 2nd round to face Jack Sock. Somehow managed to win in straight sets (6-4 7-5) after having been dominated in the 1st and being a break down till the end of the 2nd.
