Default Hard court season in Europe and North America

ATP 500 Rotterdam

Draw:

[1] Murray vs. Qualifier
Pospisil vs. Kohlschreiber
Benneteau vs. Chardy
Sousa vs. [8] Simon

[3] Berdych vs. Janowicz
Haase vs. Seppi
Qualifier vs. Monfils
Zverev vs. [7] Bautista Agut

[5] Dimitrov vs. Qualifier
Goffin vs. Muller
Garcia-Lopez vs. Istomin
Huta Galung vs. [4] Wawrinka

[6] Gulbis vs. Thiem
Granollers vs. Stakhovsky
Bolelli vs. Rosol
Qualifier vs. [2] Raonic

Maybe not the best draw, but I think he can beat Stan/Raonic.

An interesting draw. Not a bad one.

Yeah, I think he can reach the final. He can beat Raonic and stan didn't play that good in his last match.

He will play Mathieu, opening the Monday Night session. 7:30 local time.

I honestly believe Mathieu is the toughest of the qualifiers and he's coming with a lot of playing time indoors, 4 matches in the last 5 days. May go to 3, but I can't see Dimitrov losing, unless he plays really bad.

Müller vs. Goffin also scheduled to Monday, so Grigor will play R16 on Wednesday for sure (assuming he beats Mathieu).

He is using a Head racket. Maybe he wasn't pleased with Wilson. He is hitting with more power with this new one.

Dimitrov testing out another new racket. No stencil, and has the look of a Head racket potentially. (via @marcos_z)

Dimitrov is playing in Rotterdam with a Head http://prototype.Here a pic of the racquet he's testing.

He won 46 76 62

Good serve and backhand.
He was off in ROS and in rallies in the first 2 sets. Was lucky with that call in the tiebreak, but he raises his game in the most important moment.
He played great in the third.

Default Re: Hard court season in Europe and North America

I woudn't be sure about the racquet actually - still it's possible to be wilson but sure it doesn't look like one.
Anyway, rusty beginning, awesome MP saving and routine 3rd set. Don't get the fuss about the point in the TB. Whatever, even if it was for Mathieu, the TB would have ended 7-3 (or something)...I mean he was out after the lost MPs.
Hope to see him better next match

Muller is dangerous indoors but it's a match Grigor should win. He needs to read Muller's serve and defend his own 2nd serve as Muller really went after Goffin's in their R1 match.

It's over. Next : Acapulco to defend title.
Couldn't watch, but apparently a slow and bad start in 1st set.
Don't know if testing rackets now is good. Maybe he has to.

I thought he would win a Slam or a Masters this year jaja, he won't even win an ATP 250 playing like this. I think he will have a bad season, he is playing really bad.
After his best season, I don't know wtf is happening with him now.
He is having a regression. Like Grigor 2013.

the old contract is over, the old racket did not give him the power he needs, especially on his BH
with the new racket the BH is better
but his over all level is not good, he has become an average top 20 player the last 7 months
