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).
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.
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
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.
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.
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
